yeah the splitter caught it, i once hit a speed bump at 30 not seeing it and it scuffed the back box but nothing serious! but i think the aftermarket exhaust i had was deeper than standard so i don't think you'll have issues with that.

 

dropping it 20mm IMO would be a waste of time as you wouldn't notice the difference (i may be wrong)

these were the springs i purchased it says 30/35mm but we tape measured standard on a flat surface and it had drop around 40mm, they were brilliant on handling, not so good for speed bumps as my house is surrounded by them and driving over them at 3-4mph i still scuffed the splitter, daily drive was fine just much stiffer but i could live with that! i'd say go for it changes the styling of the car!

Shame youre going so soon! had a standard astra for a rental recently and while its not the same, the chassis was at leat tuned for handling so all is not lost with your GTC!

 

Thanks for your help with the amsterdam lights, look forward to seeing your next project B)

 

it's a big shame going to miss it, but hey its a free car means no out goings :), so i will finally be able to get a Japanese machine with a massive turbo haha :)

Well due to my position in the family business changing, ST is going and company car is on the way, and sorry to say this but its a Vauxhall Astra GTC SRI 2.0l Diesel (GUTTED) but better on fuel and its a free car!
when funds pick up again I'll be going Japanese for a full re-build, either a Supra or Skyline!.

 

More than likely in the future i will be back in a blue oval as they have been fantastic cars to own.

 

I will still be on the forum snooping around.

 

Cheers
