Looks nice. I think I need to find out how much samco hoses are for the Vxr Astra as you need some more blue in that bay.

maybe some bling Forge stuff also.

Very nice though, very nice indeed.

I wouldn't be spending money on bling with a car like that. I'd be spending money on the handling or power! Get a Rear Anti-Roll Bar, makes a huge difference for the lowly cost of £250.
