What alloys are they? They don't look standard.

Those are the stock 18 inch double spoke astra wheels. The color is lovely

I've slept on it and yes, it now needs lowering...

Lovely alloys, had these been available instead of the diamond cut 18s, I would have had them, still don't go with dark alloys on a dark car though, but that is just me!

Colour on the alloys look lovely! Have you thought about de-chroming the car? It will definitely make the car look more stealth!

I'm getting the window trim de-chromed on Monday. At a later date might get the front grille bits de-chromed yes :)

Yes, I'm thinking to go with the Eibach 30mm springs. Should lower it enough to look decent without sacrificing comfort

Had the Chrome window trim wrapped in Satin black today. Along with the bottom section of the front grille. Haven't gone full de-chrome on the front grille (yet) :lol: Followed by a wash and hoover.

Really like the way it looks at the front, just having the one strip of chrome really does it for me. Balance between not too much chrome but just a bit to bring out a bit of style other than all black.

Just got to get it lowered now then I think that concludes my mods. I've ordered the 30mm springs. Can I ask how much you guys would expect to pay a garage to fit them? Unfortunately I don't have the tools required to fit them so going to have to get someone to do it.

Beast! Very nice mods. Car looks great! Love rims...

I have question about twin exhaust. How much work is it with this? What needs to be done for replacement?

Again very nice!
