Right, I have changed my mind sooo many frickin' times now about what to do with my Astra - I think i'm going to stick with it and do the bodywork ASAP.

Needs a LOT of panel repairs to be fair, but this is the general list of what I hope to do:

Styling:

Colour Coded Bumpers, Electric Mirrors and Handles.
Steinmetz Skirts
Irmscher or Steinmetz front bumper/spoiler.
Not sure on rear bumper...
Carbon Boot Panel
Carbon Bonnet
Vented Front Wing

Paint:

Full respray in Vaux Ultra Blue (inc. under bonnet - door shuts etc...)
Roof and Spoiler Painted Vaux Black Sapphire - nice euro touch :)

As for the other bit's - new exhaust, bigger front brakes, rear discs - calipers painted red. Will do something to tidy up the wheels - and my mudflaps would go :p

Plus a set of Euro rear clusters.

Any other suggestions? :D

Sounds really nice, go for that. I´ve got fiberglass wings... And make sure you use a badboy´d hood! (eurostyle)

Gaah! Red calipers on a blue car? No, paint them blue or black, silver maybe... Thumbs up for Euroclusters!

Go for it Al!

I say get some 13"s. Wheel size, and width :D

Then lower it by about 200mill.

Biiig deep dish split-rims.

I'm tmepted by those carbon bonnets and back panels, but not cheap.
