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.
