Not keen on whT you've done tbh. Although I could see from a distance it may look better

I was thinking about a badgless grill but seems pricey for what it is. I was thinking alloys. Some nice 15" or 16" but not sure where I would stand with the warrenty as you mentioned

Badgeless grill require cutting the bumper, and I take it your looking at irmscher jobs. You can buy aftermarket grills for like £40-50, but as I say, you have to cut the original grill out.

Alloys, your looking at 17-18" alloys on a Corsa D. Any smaller will look stupid and pointless.
If you out alloys on it, then you'll need to lower it to give it some stance, otherwise your looking at a tractor style.

All of the above will invalidate your warrenty.

I've had a few new corsas, and I didn't do anything to the first 2, then wrote them off. The LE I lowered etc, and just kind of fecked off the warrenty, but only had it 4months from new anyways.

So you have a choice, either modify or keep your warrenty. Bare in mind, D's are expensive to modify compared to alot of cars. So I'd think carefully about it.

Meh, don't appoligise I came here for advice.

And I will be removing the red ones and replacing with white due to the problems with the law.

Other than that I'm not sure where to go :/

you can get places like thorney vauxhall that can do bits on the car say a remap and it wont invalidate your warrenty think its any place that has vauxhall master fit or something along them lines as when i went down to thorney they said most mods they do on the car wont invalidate your warrenty but guess it depends what it down to

ok cool, what about window tinting ????, that wont invalidate any warranty..

also if you ask what can be done i am sure if you get a vx dealer to fit the parts you will be good warranty wise, like remap/spring's n shock's ect, wheel's i would have thought would be fine again if they are oem

for me i would colour code the grill asap to make a huge but subtle difference, either paint or vinyl wrap

Thanks, some good advice (a first on any forum so far :/ )

I will pop down to my V dealer at some point when I have spare brass.

It's not the route I wanted to take as it's more expensive but is the smartest option.

Thanks again

DRL situation

Just so you all know I replaced the red LEDs with white ones.
I don't think they have as much apeal but they are legal atleast.

I have also relocated the red ones to the foot wells :). Will put some pics up later on when it eventually gets dark :/
