    Is it the 1.8 SRi? Can't see the badge

    Looks tidy enough, if it's in good shape then I'd say you've chosen well if you're happy with it.

    As for mods, have a search on the forum and you'll get millions of ideas.

    welcome mate, looks like a nice example you got there, couple of ideas for you could be to colour code skirts, bump strips and the rest of the centre console.

    enjoy the car as is for a bit mate instead of harsh bash as youve just got it. usual things wheels lower exhaust should all be on menu depending on your age and what your into.
    give it a good clean and polish and ad change the number plates,derestrict air box panel filter then colour code side skirts n door trims.
    Looks good and tidy though,good stuff.

    yeah its a 1.8sri 90k for £2400 which judging from prices on the net isn't bad.
    As for mods colour coding and spraying the wheels is on the cards for the not too distant future. Want a new exhaust/tailpipe - not happy with the pea shooter im currently blessed with....
    An Irmy grill is on order and i'm ordering pressed plates some point in the week. Changed all lights (fogs too) to pure white as soon as i got it and i have a pack of blue led's ready to go behind the clocks etc. Took the vauxhall + astra badge off the boot too..
