Nice car for a first car.

Stripes are a big NO unless you have a dodge viper. They just look tacky and don't suit the car.
Simple mods I would suggest is lower it, a set of decent alloys, then maybe a backbox.

Oh and :welcome:

If you dont want to affect the insurance maybe de lock and colour code. I kow what you mean about the insurance being sky high, we just have to get on with it though. Nice car and welcome

either dont declaire your mods, or get insured with a modifed car insurance like adrien flux, or someone who doesnt mind cosmetic mods like quinn direct.
otherwise you cant do ANYTHING if your not wanting it to affect insurance lol. even a colour code would chance it if you were to declaire it.

Im sure ally off here with the orange corsa b will disagree about the viper stripes, lol. As someone suggested, sxi/sri/exclusive alloys will be fine as their a genuine vauxhall part, Sri Lower grill would also be cool as its cheap (£18 or somethin) i bought one for my old c, and a steiny grill would look amazing but there £120 odds.

The stickers will look chavvy mate. Go for subtle mods, Sxi wheels, sri springs, de-locked handles, de-badged grill.

I assume you want the stickers so you get noticed, but it'll only get noticed by the wrong kind of people.

Sticking on a nice set of hub caps wont do anything to the insurance, and could make it look a bit better. just a suggestion

I heard that if you change something on the car, you don't have to declare it if it's a genuine Vauxhall part, I assume its a case of "How did they know the car didn't come with it/them?" Well thats what I've heard as long as they aren't aftermarket products. And in regard to the viper stripes, I have seen one corsa around here with them that I think actually looks pretty good, it's a nice deep blue/purple (don't know the name of the colour) and the stripes are white. I'm sure I heard the sound of a turbo when it drove past once, which makes me think maybe its got a 2.0 turbo in there :D.

I think debadging would look good btw. Maybe get the windows tinted?

hi :welcome:

i would def not get strips they just look chavy.i didnt think window tints put your insurance up? the moment you put alloy wheels on ect they will rape you.

LOL stripes, dont do stupid mods like that mate, your car is standard and you want stripes on it, just take a minute to sit back and think how silly it will look:) Get some sxi alloys, de-badge, de-lock etc... Subtle styling is the way forward:)

anything you do to your car can technicaly void your insurance if it is different to how it rolled out of the factory, it just depends how much detail you want to go.

my alloys cost me £37 for the year extra to insure, so you would be surprised! that was at 18 too..

theres very few instances where stripes look good, vipers, Fiesta ST's, Focus Wolf edition ST's, lol. thats not saying they wont look good on your car if part of a theme. stuck on a factory standard car would look odd to say the least :)

stripes live on addidas trousers and we all know who wears them .

dont get any stickers.

debadging is a good simple mod. maybe remove the bumpstrips?
