here she is brand new 2nd hand with 18k on the clock, day after I bought it very 1st car!!

got some pics up the next day, came with 15” softstars and a stick on irmscher petrol cap cover and being a corsa comfort a sunroof!

me feeling very happy and very skint







Week after thought it was unfair the car was missing out on some of the sxi features so went about modding it! no car of mine was going to stay standard for to long

always been one for c/c door handles so got that done right away and added some carbon fibre head lamp covers and irmscher door pins 2nd week off ownership!



next up came the big expense for me the irmscher front lip went to Vauxhall £330 all in! (what was i thinking , ah the times before i found ebay lol)



next up bought some facelift rub strips and got to work painting them progress



finished and on!



next up I got the boot handle painted, chrome number plate surround, and the important sxi rear lights fitted. Also add a tail pipe for good measure



next up I bought an stieny front grill and for some reason some silver wiper blades like a right chav haha



next went to the inside wanted to replace some of the dull interior here it is to begin with (early vxr red?)



step 1 was get the sxi dials bought, got the mileage reprogrammed to the new unit and fitted £160 for that again at vauxhall



next up go the silver trim dash kit bought, cd player and also found a steering wheel with radio controls on ebay so got that as well



next up got the grill painted



then I added a irmscher rear spoiler ebay again!



then came some silver handles for the inside and a sxi gear stick from a scrappy!



then got it lowered on 40mm apex springs (rock hard ride)



next came the sxi fog lights I wanted them on badly so got all the parts new and ordered an Sri lower grill again vauxall put to work for me



another big mod next the irmscher side skirts go on



next came the irmscher pillar trim kit and some Vauxhall wind deflectors



find some facelift lights in the scrap yard mint £70 get those on



she moves I find an irmscher oval exhaust get that on



finally get bored of the 15” softstars sell them off and replace with alloys from a corsa c exclusive 16” alloys



right now get down the parts desk and order hand brake inside all matches



next up comes the Sri front and rear seats they go in, not my pic but you get the idea all mint!



next I found some cheap irmscher eye brows on ebay painted they get bought and fitted!



debadged time and also de wiped plus add one irmscher rear!, petrol cap cover gets replaced

Now fully kitted at long last YAY! Happy for now!



next change the alloys to 17” irmscher sport stars, do a 300mile road trip for them I couldn’t let these alloys get away, they are a bit kerbed but all there very happy dream wheels at long last

change springs now to eibach 30-35mm much better ride

new m3’s also go on, better paint on these sell the old ones!

happy for a while she stays looking like





next up get bored off the front end bit dated, so source a 2nd hand facelift bumper with irmscher grill for £100 get on the road trip case, and collect get it painted and on!



not happy with the front not low enough really so get to work again

buy a seat leon cupra R splitter bought on the cheap give it ago! Attach standard splitter to bumper for extra low ness lol



still not really that happy with it, so get a replica front lip irmscher splitter bought off ebay for £70! and get it painted get my irmscher rear redone as well, get it fitted together



and add some tinted fog lights



then fit with new wipers, and cleaner fresher plates









then get the bonnet open fit the dilbas flow master! with air in take



also pop to regal and get EPC grooved brake discs and pads

got some tigra dash bits (not my pics but same silver bit fitted)





Bought some front sxi door cards in ok'ish condition with fake electric switches (future mod get them working)

found a vectra with leather (head rests) back and fronts mint £20

add 6x9's

16v kick plates from ebay

SRi silver pedals

Huge thanks to MJ doing most of the work through out for me & still on going

Not actually seen the progress of your car before James!!

Whata change tho!!

New plates were always needed!! Should have been totally plain though (bar the number plate )

Vectra leather?! Since when?! Pics?! Kinda tempted by those Tigra bits too. How much did they set you back? Easy to fit?

usually corsa c's arent my cup of tea, unless they have a turbo under the bonnet, but this is a fine example of how irmscher-based corsa c's should look. shit hot pal!
