    Its a bonnet extension you can get.

    Cheap fibreglass ones are about £40 and the proper Vauxhall one (Its an Irmsher option approved by Vauxhall) is about £130

    Thanks for the comments

    They are made by a company called 'DARE'

    They are 7 1/2 X 19 Dare EVO'5 alloys.

    Very nice mate

    Seen your car on some Vaux forums (probably AstraSport or Mig). Very centre console is very nicely done

    I am planning to buy an Astra Coupe turbo some time this year (waiting for one more year of NCB), and I probably will do the same to the centre console as you did, because the Sat Nav screen area is too small.

    And its a very nice idea mounting the PC in the first aid box mate! But whats the heat inside like?

    Another thing is, are you going to interface the OBD-II? Or Tech2 for that matter. I am really worry about the OBD-II for Astra (or any Vaux cars) you see, because Tech2 is proprietry and I don't think the OBD-II for Vaux cars is standard either... as far as I can remember, it is not the same as Opel's OBD-II.

    What other mods do you have on the car mate?

    Heat isnt an issue. The micro atx board runs nice and cool. Only thing that does get warm is the hard drive but doesnt get to warm to worry about.

    I am looking into OBDII at the moment but I dont want to buy an interface then find it doesnt work.

    A friend has an ODBII interface that 'should' work as its ISO the same as the Astra but need to try it before I buy one.
