So now Irmscher would not have introduced a tuning kit for the Opel Astra K, we would have directly forgotten that it was the Astra J Successor is already available for sale -> and that since 2015! None, and indeed none of our 11.500 reports so far, is about an Opel Astra from the current “K” model series. Why actually? As a comparison we have one of Caractere tuning modified VW Golf MK7 and the new Irmscher Astra K compared. Can someone give me a reason why "NO" Astra has made the rounds in the media so far, while golf is a matter of course as always? Or did we not open our eyes and miss something? : s Doesn't the Astra look much fresher and sportier and should all those who do not want to wait for the Golf MK8 change?

We think YES. In any case, we would like to give you the first details about the Irmscher Astra K and especially the performance increase for each engine of the Astra should be interesting for many. Before 2018, Opel will probably not bring itself to bring an OPC version onto the market that will replace the extremely potent and beefy Astra J. But until then, for example, drivers of the turbo version can push the “K” up to 230PS and thus, at least roughly, come close to the old OPC. Visually, however, it is immediately possible to reach the OPC level because Irmscher offers a lot of accessories. There is the Irmscher body kit, new alloy wheels up to 20 inches or a sports suspension that lowers the Astra by up to 30mm. If you opt for the complete range, in our opinion you get a vehicle that looks unparalleled in this class. How do you see it?

These are the changes to the Opel Astra K:

  • Lowering (Irmscher sports suspension - three centimeters lower)
  • Performance increase - (Chiptuning - tuning box for all Astra engines performance increase by +30 PS)
  • possibly a sports exhaust system (more information is not available)
  • Irmscher rims in 19 or 20 inches (e.g. Heli Star -> five twisted & sickle-shaped spokes in silver & gray)
  • Irmscher body kit "Sport" (side skirts, front spoiler lip with air inlets, radiator grille in honeycomb design and aluminum or carbon trim)
