Irmscher styling (my ass!) It's too easy to buy that! Go to Vauxhall garage, pick up bits, buy them, take them home, fit them, Vola a Corsa that look like all other irmscer styled Corsas!

assuming all parts are colour coded:

Why not try changing rear lights to clear? and front indicator bulbs to clear? Remove SXi badging.

De badge & de rub strip, Stick 17s, lower it, get irmscher grille, colour code,

then decide whether u want to modify it for performace or style wise so from there u can start with brake conversions or ICE

with the de-rub strip, does that come off as easily as the debadging does?

No, i did it on my old car, not doing it on this one, i found a dodgy dent under my last one, and it took hours to remove! due to the glue sticking.. and the best way to remove the glue is rubbing your thumb over it

Yeah i found a massive rust spot under my bump strip, then scrached the paint work trying to get the glue off, so had to spend ages T-cutting. But does look better without them IMO

dont go with irmsher. every second car in the uk is a black irmy c. Go with something different. mibby keep it standard body wise, and just slam it to the deck, some 15 or 16 euro alloys.... would look cracking.

Like the wheels! How about some ultra low profile tyres? then lower it?

Mine has a cream interior which looks so much smarter than the black/grey that you usually get.
