    Well, if you REALLY want to spend money on it the, personally, I would look at taking a bit of the ride height out of it with, maybe, an irmscher kit - not too stupid, just subtle. Maybe an irmscher front lower valance and some form of tailgate spoiler. With the std wheels I would just put one of the little bar ones off the SRi, not a full-blown areofoil job, but if you had 17's or bigger then look at the irmscher iRS job.

    The wheels are nice, but you would easily find some 17 inch double spoke SRi ones as the SRi owners tend to get the 19 snowflakes!

    Twin pipe exhaust and VXR diffuser ... where do you stop? What sort of budget do you have? What do YOU feel needs sorting?

    Beautiful colour, by the way, and in all honisty a very nice car in std form. Be VERY careful of the slippery slope that is modding.

    Alloys and Fog Lights would be a great start...and maybe a great finish? Mud flaps?

    That all sounds really good! I had an 07 Astra 5 door before this and changed practically everything from top spec alloys to chrome mirrors and chrome handles, dvd player in the roof of the car, lexus led lights at the back.....and all of that lasted about 7months and I got a new car!

    I think the car is really really nice as it is and it has sunglasses holder in the roof and rear cup holders etc ... so nothing much I could add to the inside - and I don't want to spend a fortune on it to be honest - especially because its so nice as it is

    And as you say ... its a slippery slope when you start doing major mods!! ...once you start you can't stop ... then end up bankrupt! ha ha

    I like the idea of alloys but i'm still not sure....

    You need alloys, wheel trims are rather 1990's.

    Are those trims then? I had a feeling that they did an alloy and a trim almost identical to each other in that style.

    I'm pretty sure they are alloys, look like 16's...?

    Trust me, they're plastic wheel trims with steel wheels hiding behind them.
