i think the lack of them is down to a few things....

a) there aren't as many styling companies who offer euro products its more jap/playmobile kits

b) speed bumps and british roads may have something to do with them practicality wise but then again it hasn't stopped some of us

c) MOT rules about rubber outside arches .etc and so forth... thats a bit of a bugger on the euro front and also i think some ppl are afraid to be different.

a)import from germany is the only way, but more expensive in some cases

b)around my area i would be fine, speedbumps are around but easily able to get round them.

c)the only way i can think is slightly flared arches, just enough so the rubber wouldnt poke out. but IMO it might look a bit er gay

i'm going down the EURO route, we'll trying to, so far it's decked as much as possible, some deep'ish wheels then i'm gonna smooth off as much body work as possible, should look quite EURO, but not proper german stylee.

another reason for not proper EURO styled car's in this country is the fact we can't have wheel's sticking out of the arche's.

Euro style corsa's are rare as rocking horse sh**, reason i went for euro style is b cos i love V dubs, and secondly cos no1 ever does euro corsa's over here, sumthing diffrent!



Still a long way to go, alot more arch work, much much lower and loads of other bits that i got planned!
