    Default My old Astra Coupe

    I used to be a member of an Astra Coupe forum and my car divided opinion on there so just wanted to see what kind of reaction it would get on here :0)

    It was a 1.8 Coupe with almost all the Irmscher parts from the factory (apart from a bonnet extension which i bought later and then removed cos i didn't like it). I fitted parts from my previous Coupe which had been written off after a BMW decided to mate with the back of it!

    I refurbed a set of Astra GSi wheels and sprayed them black.

    The day i got it:




    When i was done with it:

    Nice. I had a silver 2.0T coupe and loved it, even though it was unreliable.

    I was never really a fan of the Irmscher kit for the Astra Coupe, thought it just looked a little bolted on.

    However, some colours looked better than others. Your first pic with the 16's looks tidy but not to my taste.

    But the black GSi rims really set the car off and seems to make the kit look more subtle.

    Excellent effort, I think it looks really good with the wheels
