    Question Irmscher styling....really?

    Sorry, but...am I the only one that thinks the Irmscher bolt ons are no better than the tat in halfords?

    The grills look ok, but not when they are on every vectra, corsa and astra going, the rest of it.....definitely not a fan!!!! Cant stand that i500 i don't care how rare it is !

    Each to their own, but im much more a fan of some smart wheels, coilovers, smoothing etc. Euro look i guess.

    And before anyone asks, im only 21 as well so it isn't because i'm past it!

    I've modified previous cars but there isnt anything i'd like to do to the vectra really, apart from upgrade the bulbs and maybe tint the windows at some point.

    I do think some of the Irmsher bits arnt very nice, but everyone has there own taste

    I don't have one Irmsher thing on mind

    But the genuine Irmsher parts are made to a good quality, even if I don't like them lol

    I have gotta admit tho the i500 is a sexy motor in the flesh

    Not a great fan of Irmscher stuff since the facelift Omega kit.
    Those stick on, three foot hight IRMSCHER graphics look hideous, the door handle spoiler things look worse than alot of stuff in Halfords, and some of the Irmscher wheels are as strong as chocolate teapots.
    Irmscher rear sopiler for Vec C looks like a bit of bargeboard to me.
    Saying that, Steinmetz ain't any better in the looks or usefulness department.
    But that's just my opinion - if it floats yer boat, have it!
    I have to say that both Steinmetx and Irmscher kit do fit properly.

    Bodywise, all I've done is to fit an Opel grille on mine (pre facelift) and I think it looks waaaaaaaaaaay better then the Vauxhall one.
    Might get some nice summertime wheels, but that'll be about it.

    REALLY!!!!

    How can you say the quad exhaust dont look the dogs danglies? and the Signum roof spoiler , no Signum should be without it .
    I fully appreciate some people dont want to spend the money on the add-ons but to say that the parts are no better than the tat from Halfords , is just laughable. So how many cars have you actually seen with Irmscher gear on?
    At the wise grand old age of 21 you come accross at a bit naive.

    I guess it is all down to personal taste at the end of the day. I also don't like the Irmscher letterbox quads, I like nice quads on a car (hence my own) but don't like the look of the oblong ones, that's my personal taste that I'm entitled to as is the OP.

    There are a couple of Irmscher parts I want for my car, aluminium top front grill and roof spoiler in particular, but only because I like them, there's very little else in the Irmscher range that I like (with the possible exception of the Irmscher stars which I'll never be able to afford lol) and I can see exactly where the OP is coming from on that.

    Second time I've said it today already and it's only 11am but if we all liked the same things the world would be a very boring place indeed.
