A very good evening to you all,

Hereby for new introducing, my name is Erwin from Holland.
18 years old, and driving an Corsa B, wich in England is called a Corsa.
It's a 1.4 8valve with 60 horses when i'm correct.

I'm working at a Porsche Garage learning as a student car-technican, for 4 days a week and 1 day when i'm going to school.

Owning my Corsa since januari 2004, it's been completely standard.
But nowdays not anymore.
I't a very fine car, and i've got many plans with it.

Looking at the feature cars gallery, i've seen many beautiful cars.
Very good message board here, there's a lot to learn.
Hereby i'm showing all you peeps my car.

It's not very spectaculair, but it's a begin.


The time of a standard Corsa.





So i searched for some nice rims.
Placed a set of dark lamps to it.
And the 4x4 look is gone, helped by a set of Apex shockers with 60/40 lowering springs.
Hereby i came up with this rims from Speedline.
I've heared these are very wanted in the UK, is that right?
With Courtenay Design badges on it.





A week goes by, and my mom drives up against some plants on our driving way.
The grille was broken, so i had to get an new one.
Went to my Opel dealer, and get a new Vauxhall grille.
Later on, also an badge for the back.
I've also placed a Irmscher tailpipe, and made my middle pipe disapear.





Later on, at a big meeting, nice pic made by another Opel driver.



In March i've bought a set of 17 inch rims wich looked teribly bad.
The paint was all bladered off.
After a month, and much hours en sweat, the're looking as new.






And this is the look till now.
I've already got 2 C20XE's, one for a basis, the other for spare parts.
To build one good C20XE out of 2.
This conversion is going to happen next year.

Next plans this summer (in august):
- My bonnet, to make it with "böserblick", how the germans call it.
- A set of m3 skirts on it.
- Take away the wiper of the rear
- JC-Design frontlip
- Last type rearbumper
- Doorhandle's in the carcolor
- Take away some damages on the car.

The color will be also completely black again.

Next month there's coming Omega MV6 calipers on it (298mm), with drilled discs, and Ferodo pads.
And the single wiper with UK parafan part.

Give your opinion about my car.
Next month more pics offcourse.

Greetings,
Erwin.

In Holland it's also made as a 1.4 8V, the call it also Sport.
You've got the 1.4 8V 60hp, the 1.4 8V 82hp, and the 1.4 16V 90hp.

Yup

in our hand-book they also have the 60bhp unit (C14NZ Engine) marked in as an SRi model too, aswell as the C14SE. I've never seen an NZ marked as a sport/sri though until now

Very nice

I do see what jaffa means though -- new wheels look very 'clean', but I am a big fan of Speedlines still

Wiseguy.....
No, i'm waiting for my Vauxhall caps, but the're placed in backorder, of my local Opel garage.

One thing, i've didn't expect so many opinions about the Speedlines.
I see it's loved by all of you.
Are they so exclusiv, or hard to find?
Maybe i will place them for a while on my brothers Nova.
That's sure gonna make him happy.

Thanks for all compliments.
