Congrats on your purchase mate.

Get it lowered with some coilovers for the best effect, but if you don't have enough money, then you can always go for lowering springs. But, make sure you check the optimum lowering height because it can prove to be very bad for your shock absorbers that need to do all the same work in a shorter space.

You can always get 17" rims, but be aware that this will compromise road comfort.

Window tints look good on these cars, but make sure that they are within the legal limits, or you will have police sniffing around you A LOT!. ;)

I would reccomend that you stay away from side-skirts as they often look rubbish and Out of Place on cars that don't have them as standard. To avoid this, you can go for a PFL to FL conversion, which other members have/are doing at the moment. (I think you can do this, but mounts may be different)

These links will prove useful;




They should get you going nicely.

Good luck

was on the m8 west bound 8:30am so it was busy busy, the car behind me (astra) was right up my tail so i looked into the mirroir to see, was only looking for abt 0.2sec turned around and the car infront done an emergency stop before i knew it i went into the back of him. the car behind moved away before he hit me so he got away. the blame then was then all on me as the police said "does'nt matter, you went into the back of him you should have stoped"

so now i have to pay out £1000 (N)

someone offerd me £800 for the car the way it is lol ...
