  • My Summit White GTC VXR Astra

    Hi guys,

    Just thought I'd start a thread for my car. I will update if/when I make any little tweeks with it. I got it at the end of April this year, so not had it very long. So far I'm really happy with it, it's a real pleasure to drive. Here a few pics from over the last few months;






    The quality of the pictures isn't great but thanks for looking

    James.

                  Thanks for the comments guys.

                  I added my first little mod today, changed the rear number plate bulbs to L.E.D white which I got online. No error messages on the dash which is good, only problem is that the surrounds on the L.E.D's don't fit as snug as the stock bulbs, so they do seem loose, I'm sure I can live with it though. I'm also hoping the wiring doesn't come loose by the time i've done a bit of driving and over speed bumbs etc.

                  anyway here's the before and after pictures;




                  They seem maybe a little too bright on the pic but I think it's just the lack of quality on the photo as they look pretty cool to the eye.

                  Thanks, James.

                    Hi mate. Got plenty of ideas, just putting them in place that's the problem, need to take it step by step instead of jumping ahead of myself.

                    I think the next step will be wrapping or spraying the window strips, as I don't really like the chrome.

                    Thanks,
                    James.

                      Another quick shot of the rear number plate lights, they are quite bright aren't they! they look more like rear facing headlights! once again apologies for the low quality photo.

                      I've also fitted a VXR badge to the front grille, nice little touch. Might stick a pic on tomorrow. Tempted to tie it on with fishing line or something similar as I'm not convinced it will withstand jet washing.

                        Just a little update,

                        My next mod will be some LED sidelights/DRL's which I ordered yesterday so should come early this week. We're forcast bad weather here this week but hopefully might get a dry spell one evening so I can get them fitted

                        Will post before/after pics when they're in

                        Thanks

                          LED Sidelights/DRL's fitted

                          Hi everyone,

                          I fitted my LED sidelights today here's some pics;

                          New LED's from LushLightingCity


                          Old bulbs in holder


                          New bulbs in holder


                          The finished product


                          Really easy to do, only took me 5 mins. HID kit to be ordered and fitted next

                          Thanks for looking,

                          James.

                            Nice, they look better quality than the ones I tried a few years ago, do they dim down a bit when you put the dipped beam on?


                            There's really no need for the fishing line, although it is a good idea, I've had the badge on the grille for 3 years and its still solid.

                              Thanks Wardy,

                              No they stay the same brightness when on sidelight or dipped beam. However I've noticed the bulbs don't work on DRL mode, anyone any ideas?

                              Cheers
