Hi guys, hello from Croatia, here's my Mk3...

First a coupe of photos when it was purchased, I was driving it for a while like this, only upgrade were adjustable yellow Koni's and Koni springs -35 mm:










And then the fun begins... :P

C20LET engine and F28 transmission:





Bought new OZ Crono HT 7x17 wheels and Toyo Proxes T1-R 205/40 tyres:




Brake upgrade; front calipers from Calibra Turbo, new ATE Power front discs 288 mm (instead previous 256), new rear discs 260 mm, new pads and brake oil:





Stainless steel pipes from turbo to IC and IC to intake:




IC was moved up...





Test fitting the bumper with after cutting to fit the IC:



Some styling, black side indicators...




...and chrome hood lifters



Bit of ICE for longer journeys:






And finally couple of photos of current look:












Well, there you go, hope you like it.

The project is far from finished, I'll post updates as they come along.

Thank you all, I'm glad you like the car :redface:

Here are some new updates since my last post:

Since Astra is my everyday car, I had to take care of the comfort, so here's a "small" purchase :lol:



OMP Design 2 seats, here they are mounted in the car:





One picture with my mate:



And one more update from this morning, styling package 1/3, the other 2 are on their way :nod:

I've been thinking a lot which to buy, and I think these seats give the best value for money.

On the other hand, regardless of them being way more comfy then Sparco's, combined with this harness they give excellent body support in curves :)
