  • Changes coming for my astra!

    Time has come to mae some changes to my astra.
    Currently have the astra h 1.9 cdti.

    When I bought it, it was completely standard. I then decided to put the xp bodykit on. Looked the business but I couldnt help but really like the style of the VXR.

    So, recently I have managed to source a set of front and rear bumper from a VXR but what paint job to do on them is the next question.

    I was originally thinking just colour coding them with my car, but then saw a VXR with the rear diffuser painted gloss black.

    Then I saw a VXR with the front lower spoiler also painted gloss black.

    I have a grey coloured astra and would be interested to what you think. If there are any pictures of peoples work it would be appreciated.

    Thanks for your help

    I would say go for gloss back rear diffuser and gloss black boot strip. I'm not really a fan of the front splitter being a different colour to be honest. What colour are your wheels?
