    Interchangable / Upgradeable Parts?

    Does any one know what parts are a direct fit for my 2002 Coupe Turbo from other MY's and or Models?

    In other words, I am looking for anyone who has upgraded parts by taking them from an Astra H for example e.g brakes?

    Also if Vectra / Zafira / Astra H and any other models have better parts that are a bolt on mod, not just brakes, but anything (anything, speakers, spoilers, pistons, anything!) , I already know about the 1.9 ctdi airbox mod

    Thanks...

    thanks buddy, I'm guessing the VXR stuff (e.g pistons and rods) are stronger for handling the extra power right?

    Does the VXR not have a 6 speed box? and this fits? think I have an F23 atm.

    you have an f23 5 speed box (same for all turbo model mk4) and the m32 box will fit but you need the clutch flywheel and shafts aswell...

    you dont ask for much do ya :P

    i'm not clued up on brakes, i guess they will fit if you have the disks, callipers and brake lines tho although they arent much better than the standard turbo brakes...

    VXR brakes are bigger but for the cost of the upgrade you could just get decent discs and pads to have the same affect.

    Biggest thing most people fit is the VXR turbo as it can (supposidly) handle higher boost.

    Astra H front wipers can be made to fit for the true flat blade look, and the Vectra C rear flat blade wiper is a fairly easy mod too.
