    modding standard bumper.

    I have a standard mk4 sri bumper with square fogs, and was wondering if anyone had modded one with diffrent fogs, grills etc instead of going the GSI route. Any pics would be ace.

    Modding a standard bumper can be just as expensive as buying a rep or new gsi one.

    A less common splitter helps though .

    Have you thought about smoothing some bits of it out like the fogs? just an idea.

    was looking at the splitter on my 04 zaf and wondered if it would go the astra, as think it looks good with the cut outs.

    For me, only the lumma foglights can change the original bumper.

    Take a standard bumper, remove the grille slats, add in satin black mesh, add a smoothed in Irmscher lower lip, add in custom made meshed side vents & change fogs to ultra rare Hella Microlines.

    They don't list a splitter for the OEM coupe bumper, only for their aftermarket one. I believe that it could fit.

    hatch and coupe splitters arent interchangeable, the coupe bumper is narrower at the bottom.

    There was someone on here who put a 2.5 v6 from a vectra gsi in their astra, and transfered the vectras bumper grills into their own car. It was silver i think, but cant remember who it was, looked great though.
    Astra Sold! Now its back! Sold Again! Who knows whats going on!
