    Astra H Exhaust Trim??

    Hi guys, I often see the Astra H models with the exhaust trims fitted, similar to the XP pack style. Where do you get them?

    Also



    only realsied today after 2 weeks of owning her, that my car doesnt have alloy wheels, even though it looks like she does! they are wheel trims, and the steel wheel is in the same shape as the trims to make it appear to be alloys!

    wtf...???

    Also, anyone else had these? Any other trims available?

    not sure where you get the exhaust tip from mate but i just nearly wet my self reading the bit about the alloys, or should i say steel wheels

    i would have paid to have seen the look on your face when you pulled the hub cap off

    they are the steel structure wheels common now.

    you could always find a backbox of a car that has the trim and fit it to yours.

    Those kind of wheels do fool alot of people. Ash has got similar ones on her Club, which fooled the garage she bought it from. They had it advertised on their website with alloys. Took one look at the rear passenger one which was damaged, and basically asked the guy how the f**k it would be damaged like that if it was an alloy and still be safe to drive it. Anyway, after arguing the point with the guy, he knocked £200 off the price of the car.

    What ever you do, don't buy the trims from Vauxhall, they wanted to charged £25-£30 for 1 trim when I enquired in the past.

    They also charge around £55-£60 per steel rim as well.

    The ones Ash has on her car are different to your ones, eventually she will have my SXi alloys when I can afford to change mine:
