    Looks awesome man! I hear these are meant to be to a direct competitor to my car, the Honda Prelude so naturally I should hate you. But I really like it! Weren't these at one stage the most aerodynamic car in the world?

        Thanks man!
        I'd say so yeah.. Back then would have been the competition in the coupe range. Ahh nice to hear of the maturity there bro!
        Exactly right mate. For its time it was a breakthrough for Vauxhall and indeed motoring! Nice having a part of history quietly under the belt :P

        Cheers mate! Ahh good eyes :P well my rims didn't come with Centre caps so naturally I just had to find something and just couldn't leave them with gaping space. The opel badges were a great fix cheers

              As I write this.. She is getting tinted windows.
              I'm getting the darkest legal tint. So keen to see what it looks like afterwards!
              If it helps save the interior and keep it cool inside.. Well that's a bonus, but I think a darker shade of Window tint than no tint as current will sit really well on a white car!
              WOO soo keen!

                Did you happen to keep the boot badge? (:
                They told me I could be anything,
                so I became a nugget.

                I do Range Rover, Volvo, Peugeot and Jaguar parts for Sydney. I can also help with VW, Honda and BMW parts.

                  I quite ignorant mindedly just stuck the opel sticker over the top!
                  plus side.. if I want to restore it to standard its just a game of remove the top layer aye :P

                    PHOTO UPDATE!

                    So Windows are tinted and looking slick!

                    BEFORE:







                    There was no Tint previously whatsoever! I always felt naked in a way sitting inside no privacy.. no mystery :P

                    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                    AFTER:













                    I should have done this sooner!
                    If it keeps the inside cooler.. awesome! But Im loving the sleeker look!
                    Driving last night was the first time I wasn't blinded by headlights of tailgators reflecting from side and rear view mirrors :P
                    Lets hope I dont fall into habit and open the windows as I usually do.. its a habit but I have to resist.. two days minimum to make sure everything is settled and not going to peel off since its been installed yesterday! gotta wait a few days :/

                    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                    GUYS AND GIRLS!
                    OPINION TIME!!!!!

                    After receiving the car.. to my horror.. the rear windshield spoiler was removed! I guess so they could measure on the outside of the car how much tint they need.
                    I have a photo with it on and off!
                    Which to go with?
                    I'm used to it on there.. so to me right now it looks empty and bare.. but im starting to like it. On the other hand it becomes my cali im used to with it on!
                    Decisions decisions what do we think!?

                    Spoiler on...


                    VS

                    Spoiler off...



                    Which has your vote!?
                    Without, makes the car look sleek and the rear lines aren't messed up.. but with it on, gives it a little somethin somethin.. and I understand not many cali's have them ay?

                      Firstly I'd like to say loving the darker tint! Did they just go over the original tint with a second lighter layer, or just one much darker layer..?

                      And personally I'm not a fan of rear window spoilers on any car.. So it's a no vote from me, it looks much sleeker without it anyways.

                        Cheers mate likewise here! adds an aurora of sleek I think! Im not sure honestly.. but beforehand in no way was it different to the front windshield all the way see through.

                        yeah does look sleeker.. and when I first got the car I was dying to take it off.. but I got used to it.. now that its off im not so sure I want it on or off.. hrmm :/

                          After seeing the rear end though i cant help but think you need a towbar delete =)

                                tow bar delete? well the only reason thats making me keep it on apart from mustering up the bother to do it.. is that it'll force people parking behind to keep their distance.

                                the car does look sleek without it.. the lines are un effected. but At the same time it looks bare to my eyes. Maybe after a year and a half of it on.. im too used to it! But I do like the look change! :P
