    Idea's for modifying

    Hi Guys,

    I don't really post on here much.

    Prior to my new Astra I had a MK4 of which was easily modded, Irmsher grill, debadged, nice exhaust.

    I then went and bought a MK5 and now I'm unsure of what to do, Just wondering if anyone had any ideas, So far i've debadged it and changed the lights with some more white looking ones from eBay.

    I do plan on tinting the windows but any advise would be nice.















    Cheers!

    Go stealth.... with a difference...

    Try matt black/satin black bump strips, grill and rear chrome.
    The difference in black finishes would look great !

    That sounds good, I went for the stealthy look with my saxo -








    I can't think of what color alloys tbh, I don't like white alloys on black cars, Just my opinion, But I dont know if I feel like having another set of black ones lol!

    I appreciate the feedback, shorter arial and changing the bumpstrips would be something I think i'd need to photoshop 1st.

    I did like the look of my saxo just the exhaust let it down tbh. Might go for the same look with my astra, Not to everyones taste I understand

    I think the satin/matt black on the chrome would go well.
