Long time lurker's first pictures

Post by Darkel01 » Tue Sep 24, 2019 10:26 am

Hello all,

Just wanted to officially say hello - I've been a long long-time lurker and learned a lot from all you friendly and helpful people but I thought it was time to share my Astra with you all! Got her in Feb this year, nice 67-plate with 13,000 miles on the clock, 1.4T 150 PS engine; sadly not very many options at all so not the Nav version and also no extras inside...but I do love her! Had a few wee bits done :) :) and this is her after a fresh bath!

Very nice, recognise it from Instagram.

What splitter is that?

Ha hey dude - it's the Maxton Design V2 one - preferred it over V1 but it was a little risky as the website didn't have any photos of it on the car so just went for it anyway...turned out well!

Looks good, suits the VX-Line kit well. I'm contemplating the V1 for my standard bumper but they say it only fits the VX-Line, however they look identical across the bottom.

Looks very decent, red and black compliment each other perfectly.

Thanks pal! It sounds pretty scary lol, doesn't suggest a 1.4T. I don't have the video to upload but I'm on Instagram as @the_red_astra_k and I've got a cold start video there :)

I think you're right, though i'd probably just ask them to be safe. I believe the front splitters and the spoiler extensions should fit find..it's the sides and rear that are mainly different on the VX line along the bottom...particularly with the factory side skirt sand also the different bumper trim/reflector placement.

Fantastic looking.
Your detailing is next level btw
I watched your video on instagram as well, was the exhaust difficult to fit?

Hey mate - thanks! What's your name on Insta? Good to follow!

Nah it was alright, the most annoying thing was just taking off that bumper trim to fit the one with 2 cutouts but as it's a Vauxhall part it was a straight fit. I think the only thing that I found odd is the way the hangers are situated above each exhaust tip, meaning the tips don't come out very far under the trim which struck me as odd, as it looks like 1.6Ts with that fitted as factory-standard seem to protrude more...

And thanks! about the detailing lol! Just recently discovered what a joy it is to do so I enjoy spending the time on it :)
