This has to be one of my favorite corsa's, the looks, power and the fact it breaks down all the time. I nah that feeling like.lol. I first saw this car in TV and it inspired a change in direction for my own corsa.

I really hope you dont sell it cos you can tell by reading this wip that you love this car and i think every one else who has read this wants you to get a bit of luck and see it running properly and for a long time.

keep your chin up mate and you'll get there.

there wont be any pics of it till pvs. all im gona say is it looks perfect. ive had a really good offer on selling it as i was looking at gettin a mk5 astra 5dr sri 1.9cdti (150) in black through work for £7500 with only 31jk on the clock but it would put me in far too much debt.

instead of selling the car im looking into selling the engine and the throttle bodies etc and mayb going down the route of a let?
