FEATURE // Roan’s Astra GSi

‘One of the most beautiful Astra’s in the Netherlands’, according to multiple Opel forums.

And I think I agree. An Astra F isn’t the first car that comes up in my mind for tuning and styling, but this is a clean example. I can’t drive past this one without turning my head.


The car has a Rieger front bumper, Rieger rear bumper, GSi spoiler and Rieger sideskirts. A perfect fit with the 16″ Borbet ‘T’ rims.


And not only the exterior has been changed. Originally this Astra was a 1.6L, but Bas (the previous owner) has replaced this 71HP engine with a 150HP C20Xe GSi engine with some modifications. It has around 180HP now.
