If you swapped the full front and rear bumpers from a VXR they would fit, plus the skirts and spoiler would fit any 3 door straight off, but as mud says its be stupidly expensive, from memory I think a standard Astra H rear bumper was £400 from Vauxhall in primer so I'd assume the VXR one would be more than that, likely the Corsa one would be similar so your looking at £500, front bumper probably the same, that's £1000 already, spoiler likely about £250 in primer, skirts maybe £400, then youve got the front bumper fittings like the front fogs which were different on the D VXR from standard Ds, another £150 say, plus they needed different loom extensions which were about £50 each, then the front splitter say £100, lower grille probably £50, upper grille, the grille bar and badge could be £200 all told, that's £2250 before printing and labour/fitting, so all in you could be talking £3000 just to get it looking like a VXR, then youd need the bigger wheels to go with the kit, and all the stuff to convert to 5 stud to fit the wheels if you havent already got 5 stud.LimeyUK said:Pretty sure the true VXR body kit's wouldn't fit anyway!
I agree as I totally take your point about having a remus which makes the car sound powerful when it wouldn't be, and also because why would you spend all that money making a slow car look like a fast one when itd be cheaper to just buy one that already looks like that and has the power to match for the same money, but at the same time I don't agree, when I was 18/19 people were all about making their cooking models look like the fast ones, for the sake of having a car that looked fast, me, I didn't care about power or speed, never have really providing its got adequate power for everyday driveability so like a 1.6 Astra because the 1.4 couldn't pull you out of bed, 1.4 206 because the 1.1 just had to be thrashed to get anywhere etc. I wanted mine to look like the GSi, or the GTi or the XR3i or whatever simply because I liked the look of them and thought they looked the best of all the models in the range of the particular car I owned, but then you could likely go to a scrappies and buy the complete kit in the right colour for pennies back then so its not really the same, but its like back then a lot of people also used to put stupid bodykits on their slow cars (nothing wrong with modifying a slow car IMO) and totally ruined the look of them, whilst others just added the sporty model kits, spoilers and bumpers which cost less and improved the car.mud4fun said:Different bonnet on the VXR (E) too which means yet another part you'll need to buy to make it truly look like a VXR. You'd also need the new 'fake' air intake for the bonnet leading edge. Oh and the twin remus exhaust with its distinctive sound and probably a new engine because otherwise what is the point of having a car that looks like a quick car if it aint actually quick? ;-)
