Hello peeps,

Been lurking on here for a bit now since picking up my new car. It is a 1998 R plate ph2 Astra GSI. Its only got 52k on the clock, 2 previous owners, flame red. The car is absoloutley mint in every way not a mark on it.

Some pics











Absoloutley love it.

Few little things i want to do;

Clutch pedal is very high, but hopefully getting fixed by wifes dad as he is a vaux technician and says the cable needs a nut added onto the gearbox end of cable to adjust it.

Would like a set of lowering springs (unsure what though, been looking at the konis). The bilstein shocks and arb where rebuilt at vaux about a year ago.

Comments welcome

Dan

Looks a nice car m8... The car already looks lowered to me and if its got bilstein shocks on it then one would guess its been lowered too, just doesnt seem it with 15" wheels on it but there should be a vary large gap under the front wing. 17" alloys look well on the phase 2's

Looks stunning that does mate, very nice indeed :nod::cool:

I would be tempted to do a few subtle things to it, like electric Sunroof, leccy mirrors (if it doesnt have them already), maybe shocks and springs, braided brake lines, but that would be about it, nothing on the exterior, just a few choice upgrades.

Its to mint to mess with the exterior :nod::cool::cool::cool:
