Aye, looks like the security glass, and the calipers were already done too.

Just going to do some sort of satnav conversion and the SMDs a think :D

Trem:

There are two avenues I am looking at:

1. To add a tom-tom in the dash somewhere. I have read that someone on the Astra forums moved their MFD up to the ceiling and put a tom-tom XL in its place (as the size is very very close). They got a refurbished tom-tom and took the back off it, rigged up the on/off switch & had it so you can power it and access everything without removing it again.

2. Change the Stereo unit for one with the sat nav system in it. (If applicable) Rig it up to a reversing camera.

I want to add some reverse parking sensors. I don't really need them, but they'd be cool for when it comes to re-sale I am sure. I also want to do the LEDs. Probably just do them white.

I also wonder what blacklight footwell lights would look like.... :rolleyes:

Cheers bud! Much appreciated!!!

I'm looking at doing the following:

Added Oil & water temperature gauge
Added boost pressure gauge
debadging the words & letters
Sound System
DTUK Tuning box - maybe ;)



Judge me all you want - I'm in the process of converting the motor into an Autobot :p

I've seen the Transformers badge too - looks good!

I like the idea of de-badging too. You can wipe the smiles off the all-noise-no-poke chav choices when you hit that thumping torque band that the 1.9cdti 150 has!

I was hoping to get hold of one of these, but many things got in the way, namely insurance cost (£2k + :eek:), and the actual purchase price for a decent one. One day!

Great colour you've got there too - hopefully it won't show the barrel loads of grit that the council are putting all over the roads at the moment.

Ahh so I have a stalker!!

Jm, seriously mate, you need to try parking in Darlo college. The spaces are ridiculous, the photo doesn't give it justice. I figured parking passenger side to passenger side would be ok, and it worked out :)

:lol::lol: yea Jazz is right the bays are tiny and i would probably park that way myself in there.There used to be a bright red golf (immaculate)there he used to park on the end beside some bushes and had foam pipe insulation on bungies along the full length of the vulnerable side to try and protect it!!
