    Other halfs Corsa

    We had a wee Nissan Almera as a run around but decided it was time to part ways as age was taking it's toll, Sold it a couple of weeks ago and the Missus was looking at scenics etc, after a bit of costing we decided because she's been through her test less than a year it was a wise move to go down the small and cheap route again..

    So picked up a Clean 1.4 16v Sport in Red this afternoon, its lowered (by what we think is 60mm), 14" Vauxhall alloys, Service history from 2000 to 12/2009, 71,000 miles, Sunroof, electric windows, central locking, standard stereo,
    too say she's chuffed is an understatement





    after a quick wash and wheels soaked and scrubed in wonder wheels.. only thing asda sell at 9pm on a sunday night,







    All the cars tucked away for the night,




    Plans are too..

    Paint rear Spoiler,
    flush rear wiper and cure rust around it
    Cure small patch of rust near spoiler
    |Tidy up Arch mouldings
    Service it

    Get an open cone on it, or drill the airbox

    The noise sports make is highly addictive

    Open cones and airbox drilling are not my cup of tea, ecotecs are hard enough to keep running right without throwing heatsoak and dirt into the mix,

    Engine will stay completely standard, i have the GSi to play about wih for noise and power... but agree with the noise of the sport, it just wants to rev and sounds like a (dare i say it) vtec at times, i do love it but its her wee car not mine, just need to get the GSi back on the road and give my mate back his passat

    hey Graham, no offense mate but way past buying fox/wolfrace etc wheels, personally after selling them for 3 years i got pretty sick of the sight of them.. especially when they came winging back due to faults,

    Depo headlights though... talk to me when they are available, GSi is going up for sale so got a few plans for this,

    Some better more recent pics once it had been washed and second set ouside thge house was with a good polish








    After a Polish






    and a quick wheel idea i had earlier.. 16"x7" Rota Grids In either Bronze or Anthra.. unsure of which yet



    getting a marmite feedback on them but i like them, we'll see if the missus does tonight
