Hello and welcome RISELEY :D

Nice and tidy little car, got to say the first thing i'd do is lose the lex lights ( was the first mod mine had actually, removing the last owners bad taste :laugh: )

A nice set of alloys and lowering would make a huge difference :driver:

Get those mirrors colour coded mate, ditch the red sunstrip and get smoked back lights!

:welcome:.
It's best to buy smoked rears as they look a bit crap if you do them yourself.
These are just my suggestions:
remove lexus lights, remove petrol cap sticker, remove sunstrip.
Lower it.
It will then look quite nice.

Ebay if your really lucky.
Other than that your talking £170.

Also another suggestion is some front smoked headlights. Or even halo's.

Get it clamped then have it crushed for free. Do us all a favour.

:laugh:


Only joking mate, a few simple mods, nothing over the top - Makes corsa's look quite lush. :)

Get the smoked ones off ebay, they're road legal. Look at my gallery to see what they look like.
If you smoke them yourself they won't be legal and will look cack.

mostly whats been said before about losing the lexarse lights etc, also get those wheels done in black, either spray them yourself(not diffuclt and look great if done properly) or get them powdercoated, and it will look mint!!

to lower it 60mm would the wheels not rub against arches? and what paint would you use to spray the wheels black cheers?

It depends on the offset of the wheel as to wether it would rub or not.

lower it 60mm on thse cavy cesero rims there a really nice wheel and when its lowered yo will notice some ammount of difference this is my mates car polished up and now turbo'd and also for sale :) the wheels wont rub as most genuine vauxhall wheels for the corsa and have the correct offset id say to watch the tyre size 195/50/15s or 195/45/15s and have a look at the wee studs on the plastic arches to make sure there not going to dig in, if so get them off and bonded on and job done :)
