I had my astra basically finished before i joined this site, (could do with lowering still though) then when i joined here, im now looking, SMD conversion, Cruise control, AFLs, rear anti roll bar, even quite fancy a VXMII headunit or what ever they are called, and ive not long got a brand new Pioneer double DIN that i am more than happy with and does just about everything the VXMII does :lol:

But yes costs a fortune reading this site :lol: So many nice astras, so many cool mods that can be done (Y)

im really glad that I found this forum when I bought my Astra Life.

I've so far painted the V grille,
colour coded all the black plastic on the bumpers,
colour coded the rear boot strip,
de-badged rear and sides, although i've now replaced the ASTRA badge and put a VXD badge on the boot strip as it looked too bare.
Bought some 555 indicator surround stickers from off here, Also AON window stickers,
Replaced the interior with a Half Leather,
Replaced the steering wheel with an SRI wheel,
Replaced the dash with Piano Black,
Replaced the CD30 with a CD30 MP3,
Replaced the two line display with a three line.

and planned next month is:

a SMD conversion by Stampede,
Cruise Control Activation,
Steering Controls Activation,

The list goes on and on. Once my interior is sorted i can then start saving for the exterior. :thumbs:

The list just keeps on growing. I've done all the smaller, cheaper mods. Now i'm looking at stuff costing £500+ i.e 18s, double din etc
