    Default W20adm's Power Red Astra Vxr

    Well I've only been on this forum for 8 years (just warming up really) but I thought it's nye on time I put one of these threads up showing my car, just in case anyone gives a damn. .....

    Bought this car in late 2009, was less than a year old with only 7k on the clock. Was previously a fleet car and had been through 2 quick owners.

    Original spec wasn't bad.

    19 inch Ronal optional extra alloys (diamond cut).
    Full factory sight and light pack with afl, auto wipers and headlight washers.

    Over the past 8 years it's had all kinds of bits changed, normally put back to standard or changed again. I have also retrofitted several factory options to the car, most of which still need tech2 activation.

    Retrofits done include,

    Cruise control
    Factory park pilot
    Check control (looms were factory present)
    Dds
    Powerfold mirrors (with added auto fold/unfold with door lock)
    Full 3 line CID setup
    Cd70 navi with factory aux

    current body mods include

    Smoke tinted rear lights
    Smoke tinted side repeaters
    Carbon dipped boot strip
    Carbon dipped xp fog surrounds
    Carbon dipped honeycomb diffusers inserts
    Gloss black wheel refurbished with vxr centre caps
    Lower grille mesh to expose intercooler core

    Current interior mods include

    Blue smd conversion
    Blue courtesy footwell lighting
    Carbon dipped centre console surround
    Carbon dipped gearstick and cig lighter surround
    Carbon dipped glove box trim
    Carbon dipped light switch trim
    Plastidipped door insert trim
    Carbon wrapped steering wheel inserts
    Vxr seat belt covers on rear seats

    Handling mods as it stands

    Whiteline adjustable rear anti roll bar

    Engine mods as it stands

    AET stage 2 k06 hybrid turbo with turbosmart recirc valve and actuator
    Full cobra 3" exhaust system with scorpion 2.75" downpipe
    Airtec original front mount intercooler
    Mtc tophat and powerpipe (polished)
    Mtc direct route kit (polished) and AEM 5" cone filter

    Engine Bay dressed bits so far include

    Gloss black header tank
    Gloss black strut cap covers
    Red silicone joiners
    Enhance performance gloss black powdercoated coolant rail
    GM oe battery bag

    Pics of her as she stands (not the cleanest but weather's not right yet for ocd cleaning to begin )







    Bay pic (blue rocker is a temporary one)



    Interior









    Only immediate future plans are

    Factory heated seats
    Maybe factory tpms
    Power red rocker cover (in the process of painting at time of writing)
    Maybe coilovers
    Maybe wavetrac diff

    Car has been completely undersealed with hammerite under body seal. Wheel knuckles have also been sealed with hammerite to help prevent corrosion.

    Thanks for looking.

    Rocker primed. Just needs 24hrs to cure, then ready for a quick sand.

    I state "maybe" because I always said it's the only way I'd go lower again. Not with those damn springs .....

    Anyone know why this message is popping up despite not actually having activated check control yet?

    And yes I know the car is unhappy with my led reverse bulbs, my point is I thought the warnings were part of check control.

    It’s part of the standard check control I believe.

    But saying that, I only ever got these once I swapped out my CD30 to a CD70. Magic...

    So are we to ascertain that cd70 navi and CID comes with automatic check control? !
