MMMM lovely!!!

Only thing I need now is enough money to get a chopped calibra 4wd drivetrain, and a 3.2v6 from a new vectra with a turbo bolted on, damn that would be nice!!!![:D][:D][:D][:p]

Ill tell ya what, i normally hate modded corsa's but i dont mind yours, probably because you dont have a ridiculas spoiler on the back of it!!

Like your wheels, but think you desperately need big brakes behind them!!!

[:D] Very funnnnny!!!!!!! (but none the less true!!! [:(!])

I seriously need some big brakes (not that I drive fast or anything, the standard small jobs just look crap!!)

But I dont know where to get em from, how to get em changed over, or how to have the drums converted to discs, anyone help me with it?

I just had to have something different, so I went for more than usual, bigger than usual exhausts, pity the car's only a 1.2 (especially with around 65bhp at the wheels now Ive got 18s on!!)!!

Not a Corsa fan i'm afraid but the black saves it and it's certainly not offensive, unlike the god-awful orange coloured one down the road from where I work.

Not sure about the quad exhausts tho.....

i was going to say it looked good for a corsa, until i saw the four exhausts??? whats all that about?? I just hope all the pipes are actually connected, as on cold mornings, it'll look a bit silly with fumes just coming out of one pipe.

I'm glad your happy with it and happy motoring. I think some SUBTLE tints might make a nice addition to the appearance.

LOL! Speak for yourself pop! [;)]

Re: the Corsa.. Have some scafolder's played a trick on ya mate? hehe! I actually think the whole car looks great (and I'm not a fan of the Vaux in general) but it really looks very tastefull.. and refined.. the zorsts spoil it but that's just IMHO!

Good effort though, I'm impressed.

So the general feel of it is - nice car, but dude, what were you doing with the exhausts??!!

Well thanks for your comments, I like the exhausts, (and yeah they are all connected up) its all about personal taste at the end of the day isnt it!!

Ive just rung a compant called CossVaux about getting a 2.0t for it out of an Astra GSi / SRi Turbo / Coupe Turbo or Zafira GSi but I need to source a decent engine, anyone know where I can find any?

Oh and my GF's car is brill, what mileage does she need to stop beddin it in?

Cheers guys (and any gals??!!)

Vauxhall eh? Like the grille / debadged setup, like the wheels, but I think its clear what you need to do with those exhausts! [;)]. It is just a 1.2 dont forget so its a bit daft having that many- an BMW M5 has smaller ones and thats a V8...otherwise I think its a relatively tidy job!

Regards the brakes; if the top model doesnt have them already I gurantee the forthcoming Turbo will have discs on the rear, so the easiest way would be to get a full set of those. If not Im sure there is a way to change the rears easily; all I really know about brakes is you must change the rears if you do the fronts to maintain the braking bias.

Agree with everyone else- the exhausts look crap!

But apart from that, it's a very nice looking car. I come from a traditionally Vauxhall family, so I tend to like them, and that is nicely modded.

My ex-girlfriend has a standard black 1.2 SXI and they are really nice to drive too- as well as being unbelievably well equipped for a car like that. Elec windows and mirrors, sports seats, fogs ,cd, tasteful aluminium dash etc.

My brother also has a black 1.2 SXI but his is a Corsa B. One of the last made, it's a 2000 X. He's got 16in Speedline Corse alloys on it and lowered 60mm. Also a good wee car, especially for a 17 year old!
