hi mate, welcome to allcorsa

first of all, nothing wrong with 5 -door corsa's whatsoever!

some people dislike them, but on the other hand some people prefer them, bcause they're less common than 3 door models

if you look here http://www.allcorsa.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?t=28
yo will see my old corsa, which was a 5 door, a few simple but effective body mods, and it also had a 2 litre fitted.

if you want to go down the road of bodykits etc, everything is pretty much the same as the 3 door, with the exception of the rear arches, and some sideskirts (due to difference in shape of rear arches, and some sideskirts join onto rear arches) and also the tail lights are different on a 5 door!!

hope this helps

feel free to ask anymore questions you may have, post some pics of your car too if you have any

eve some pics of your car standard, thats fine! it means peple can suggest what the think would look nice on your car etc :)

a lot of insurane companies are very strict with mods, and the ones that do allow you to mod your car tend to rip you off with mods.

i'vefound that admiral/bell/elephant seem to be about the best companies in general for young drivers :)

no, you pay a bit more on your premium for each mod, but they allow it.

I'm with adrian flux who specialise in modded cars and young drivers.
Also ecarinsurance.co.uk are really cheap I've found.
I'll get an insurance sticky put together soon with all the contact details for insurance companies on it.

I used to be with them, they were a really good company until they moved their call centres to india, then it became impossible to speak to anyone about anything when they struggled to speak english.
Oh and they put my insurance up by £200 when it was renewed for no reason. Even though i'd had no acidents, got an extra years ncb and was also a year older.
And the reason they gave me? 'it's just what we have quoted you sir'.

I told them where to stick it and moved over to adrian flux.

afaik, most insurance companies are around 15-20% extra for first mod, and 5% each mod thereafter

I always insure mine with all extras so I'm not sure what it would be before the mods.
