    Modification

    Hello I am looking for suggestions as to what to do with my Astra Sxi 1.6 twinport 3dr. I am only 18 so i cant do anything over the top because my insurance would be a disgrace. I am defiantly going to tint out the windows soon and get new alloys but does anyone have any suggestions as to which alloys or any other things I could do? I have some money to modify the car but not crazy money. Any help would be appreciated.

    I'm guessing you have a Mk4. I would recommend these Omega wheels http://www.vauxhallspares.co.uk/alloy_wheels.html
    (Third picture down for reference) one of the best wheels for the Mk4. GSi Snowflakes and Coupe turbo rims are a good choice too.
    As for other mods, just keep it simple. Less is more nower days. Decent set of Vauxhall 17's, coilovers (if your insurers will cover them) coupe bumper, irmy grill. Sorted.

    I was really tempted to get HIDs last week but I dont want the hassle of changing them every MOT so i just bought xenons. My car is black by the way.

    mate if i was you i'd keep it subtle. my car is exactly the same as yours, same colour as well, all iv done to it is:

    tinted
    black 18" inovit volution alloys
    eibach pro kit - 30mm drop
    sound system-kenwood screen, sub, amp, door speakers etc
    angel eyes and 8000k HID kit
    yellow calipers

    car looks absolutely mint! might possibly get an irmscher grill for the front as well but not too sure yet. trust me subtle is the way forward, no silly neons, back box, body kit etc. simple is class hope that helped!
