    Comments/ideas for my sri

    Bought my astra sri two weeks ago now and am trying to decide what to do with it. Things im considering at the moment are:

    Change the aftermarket backbox (as it makes it sound to much like a boy racer car)
    Remove tints
    debadge boot except griffin
    smoked rear lights
    change front grille
    new numberplates as i dont like the gb logos at the side
    Dont want to make it to modded looking just a few subtle little mods.
    And on the performance side i may just do the simple breathing and exhaust mods for a few extra horseys
    comments please!

    Colour code the door handles and rubstirps

    Get some PROPER SRI/GSI rear lights, dont do those DIY self tint kits, they're terrible and never finish proper like the real things

    Get some 308mm discs and calipers, make ahuge difference over 280's

    Yeh i forgot to mention brakes as there is an advisory on the mot about the brakes. Never fitted new brakes before though how difficult is it to do or would i be best to pay to get them done?

    Its pretty simple to be fair mate, just need a few spanners or sockets from 10mm to 23mm and allun keys, main allun key is 7mm and a Torx T25 bit

    Calipers and carriers are helf on by 18mm sockets disc is held on by the Torx T25 bit

    Keep the tints mate it looks fine.

    If the exhaust it too loud then by all means if you dont like it change it.

    I would colour code the skirts and rub strips and get some half decent alloys, but apart from that its a nice car.

    they are gsi rear lights! the standard tinted ones were used on astras after 2003.

    id personally only change the exhause, looks good the way it is mate.
