    should look good once all the parts are on and painted.

    The colour of the front bumper doesnt seem like an exact match to the bonnet+wing, respray time once its all together ?

    anyway, should look elite

    Front bumper looks shit, regardless of colour.

    The rest is so subtle it works well until you get round to the front of the car.

    Rear lights look good. You done them yourself?

    I dont like the Window tints. Too dark imo

    the front & rear bumper are

    Not sure about skirts, Lumma or Sharkattack would be much better

    What wheels are you getting? I see you have yours for sale on here...

    It's a Dietrich front - that doesn't automatically make it follow the lines of the car.

    The sides of the front bumper feature large vents that are out of shape with the rest of the car.

    The two bars that break up the mesh on the front are too angled - again, a shape that's not found anywhere else on the car.

    Doesn't suit.
    You'd have been better off getting the RS or even the RA front rather than the GTR.

    Skirts are fine - inoffensive style, so stick with them.

    Get the Ronal's - everyone else wimps out and goes for sensible offset wheels. Don't be a wimp be a man.

    Possibly. Then you'll need to make the front bars a little more curved. Remember, the Corsa B is a bubble - bubbles and sharp edges don't suit.

    Keep the vents on the wing though.

    Better.

    Make the two bars in the centre follow the same curve as the outer meshed parts.

    look at the straight on pic they are curved but not as much as they should b to match the cars lines !

    and regarding wheels... offset is no problem

    I do see Joffs point here

    I don't really like the vents in the side of the bumper. They look too big

    I just had a quick play in PS & smudged away the vents & it looked alot better

    Also, I know alot of people dont like the R&A bumper but I think it looks great & suits the corsa perfectly (apart from the quality - ie. fibreglass & not plastic)
