Default Modified Opel Astra with Skoda tail lights and spoiler



Seen this Astra in Andheri (E). Looks good with the Octavia tail lights and the flared rear wheel arches. Comments, guys?

Awesome mod!!! Not overdone at all. I never could have imagined that an Astra could look this good!

Looks pretty much alright to me, cleanly mated tail lamps and suitably proportioned quarter panels. however when i look at it i feel there is something missing and i cant place it... wonder what he is lacking? Oh yeah and the badging should go. Wonder what the front looks like, try to get a pic?

Doesn't anyone else think it has a strong resemblance to the rear of the Indigo? Maybe it's that large chrome numberplate shroud. Makes me wonder if parts are getting hard to find for the Astra now?

to me the boot looks out of proportion,doesnt gel with the rest of the car.and that red sticker on the rear glass is a big no no!!even the bumper is not that well designed specially the design of the mesh part..the skoda tail lamps look good though..

Looks nice.... but what's the point? Why not get a real Octavia?
To me, a mod should try to make the car look different, and better... Modifiying an Astra to look like an Octy screams wannabe.

proberbly the astra tail lamps are not available easily and that would have made him look for a alternative.

I think the front has Palio headlamps, i have seen them fitted well on a red astra so i think its this same one. The chrome number plate bracket looks cheaper but i like the finish overall.
