    Turning a 1.9 cdti into a VXR lookalike?

    How much would it cost roughly? I'd be buying a black Astra so can just source parts from the Black VXR. I quite like the idea of a 200brake 45/50mpg VXR

    So i'd need:

    Front bumper
    Side skirts
    Rear bumper
    Spoiler
    Exhaust
    Wheels

    Anything else i'v missed? Is it easy to get the fogs to match up? Disconnect/connect type of thing?

    I'm trying to decide whether I should spend the money on an XP pack astra, or save a bit of money initially but convert a non XP pack one into a VXR look alike.

    All help/advice appreciated!

    Thanks,

    Wayne

    The interior needs to be changed, otherwise it's obviously not a VXR
    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!

    xp kit and tidy it up bud and tune the car to just over 200bhp and annoy the hell out of vxr owners
