Hi all, real name is chris from worksop in nottinghamshire, after being a member of the original astra sport i though i might as well put my car up in here.

I have owned the astra for something short of 87 years now. I have never been a person for modding cars or putting enhancements to gain power but just recently that has all gone down the drain and have got a list the length of my arm posted in my garages kind of a check list.

here is how she was bout all those 7 years ago;

After a few problems blow out on a tyre the kei's went bye bye and ended up getting some old BBS RL's that where featured on the limited edition 100's and have done quite well for the test of time.

There was something quite missing from the front end to give it the "LOOK" i was After so Thanks To LMF i got a nice new GSI Front And that finished the look of perfetly
