Hi guys,

What is done:

- Painted interior panels, trims,
- Led lighting for vents/speedo,
- Led interior/hood lamp
- Chrome rings,
- De-restricted airbox,
- Door handles/spoiler/mirrors in carbon vinyl,
- Left and right arm rest

Plans for a future:

Need your opinion :)

that maybe, its kinda like getting Recaro seats as standard or brembo brakes. vauxhall just buy them in.
This Corsa is one of the latest sold. I think this is a special version with sunroof, rear and front spoilers, made by Opel (maybe regional) to sell them quickly.

This sunroof was on the new car. I have seen a couple of models like mine.

Finally, an original Bosch MAF solved the problem. The ride feels so dynamic, like I swapped a 2L engine :)

So if anyone has an acceleration problems or check engine light on when accelerating, you shall consider changing your MAF sensor.

I have a gear oil smell when going at speed >70mph. It's not a burning smell, however it annoys me.

Anyone had a same problem?
So, I changed transmission oil today. Old oil was ok and it's level was good too.

I removed the interior floor carpet between front seats. It seems that the gearbox is covered with some sort of thermopaste. In one place it started to melt (8x3cm0. I think this causes the smell when going fast.

I see two options:

1. Get rid of old thermopaste and add some traditional heat protection sheets.
2. Replace old thermopaste with a new one

What you'll advise me?
