im with you on that, it looks like they borrowed their mums car and did a ram raid on a branch of halfords

why not just trade their 5 doors in and buy a 3 door model

or just buy one in the first place

I mean I'm biased but I think the car looks less of a bubble and it's also 'a bit different'...

...same argument as why bother modding a 1.2 8v?

I like Tims..... Best i've seen...engine wise too... infact I would own it..

Agree that some can look out of place..but some type of modding looks stupid and out of place on 3 doors..............

Some look OK, some look good, some look sh*t.

but this is the same on all cars, regardless of it being a 5dr or a 3dr.

The majority of 3door corsas i see are shit aswell so what does this mean?

And yes i am biased - its more practical, you wont get your B pillars cracking like in the 3dr's and like Tim said it's different and same arguement as why bother modding a 1.2 8v?


Rob H - Thats blantantly a shop look at the wheels and the mismatch colour of the doors you just put the middle part of a 5dr between the two ends of a 3dr

Fanks Don't get my wrong I understand where people are coming from -- can look really stupid especially when fitted with OTT kits...

Have to say TOMAS's is one of my fav's now too -- really tastefully done

If I wasn't selling.... I have lots of plans
