Name is Cliff

Drive a 1.4 LS - Auto in Horrid Purple/Blue .... Sooooo need to respray it something better

Slowly working on the car, but my disabilities stop me from doing alot to the car,

Anyone care to lend a hand. Ive got cash to do the work just not the energy or body strength to do it lol

Live in a smallish town called Ramsgate, very much near Margate... although all us from Ramsgate will never admit that LOL!

Will post some more pics of my car when its daylight







Work Done So Far:
Xenon Bulbs + Sidelights
Blue LED for MFD
Replaced Bulbs in Dash (Speedo Bit)
New Trackrod Arms
New Ball Joints
New Front Windscreen (Some little **** shot it with a air rifle)
New Front to Back Exhaust (Only a standard One) .... Still Knocks like Chuff!!!!
Blue LED Interior Light
5 New Tyers on standard 13"
New Front Splitter :p Original Corsa B (Thank God for a local Scrappers :D)

Still Lots more to do!

I think they are fantastic, only thing you have to remember is on a cold start that 1st gear is a bit sluggish.... until the auto fluid warms up. However keep on top of making sure the auto fluid is nice and clean and you'll never go wrong.

I've only had the car a little over 3months and already ive done 7000 miles in her .... Love the car to bits... taken it all over pretty much , first week of getting her i did 600 mile round trip to visit family......

Would deffinatly advise though to get one with fairly reasonable milage...... and be prepaired to pay a little extra for the auto models.....

I paid 500quid for mine and i think that was a BARGAIN!

Edit : Also Dnt what ever you do use the BIG "S" Button on the Auto Stick...... what is a normal 30 mpg round town goes to about 15 if you use it.... although fantastic to burn off with a LOAD ROAR! when a little twerp in a Saxo is next to you!

Great review thanks! I will keep it in mind. My reasoning behind getting her a corsa is since ive had mine, ive learnt allot about them so i thought if she has one too, can keep servicing bills and that down! :)

500 is definatly a bargain mate! :eek:

You'll be surprised what a good t-cut and waxing would do for that.
