As­tra J

Performance Vauxhall - - HALL OF FAME -

Work­ing for Au­to­vaux must have a num­ber of ben­e­fits, and it’s cer­tainly helped Carl Ward when it comes to sourc­ing bits for his As­tra J! He ac­tu­ally bought this car from his fa­ther in April, and since then has set about al­ter­ing the styling to make it stand out. The big­gest change is the X-line kit, a prelaunch kit that Carl pur­chased on­line and fit­ted to his car right away – it never even saw a dealer! Other changes in­clude Team Heko wind de­flec­tors, a splash of car­bon black paint for the wheels, an Irm­scher grille and some Weitec coilovers. It’s also been mapped by the guys at RS Tun­ing, so power is up to a claimed 185.4bhp and 330lb/ft of torque.
