    simple free mods are
    debadge all around inc doors..
    remove bump strips (kettle of water) no holes!!
    fly eye kit (£15)

    p.s if it was mine i would fly eye it as i dislike those chrome headlights

    Ah yes piano I took the car for a drive and had to buy it!
    I dont like the chrome lights either too bright for the car to pull them off.
    I plan to debadge but i prefer the look of the car with the bumpstrips on without the xp sideskirts as i think the doors look too flat. So an XP kit is in my mind for the future

    Car looks good. Couple of suggestions from me:

    Colour code grill and boot strip
    Change headlights to standard ones with black inserts instead of chrome
    Change the mats for tailor made Vauxhall ones

    Oh, and when you can, change the wheels!

    they are on the black ones mate.
    ok maybe not a fair example as yous are chrome but you can see the chrome on mine showing (just)

    its up to you, you can spent £15 on tinting them or £70+ for black ones?

    Nice motor mate, bonus with the piano black.

    low3sy where did you get your fly eye kit from, was it quick and easy to do as it is a film rather than spray laquer is it not mate.

    I did rears with spray..
