Not an amazing car compared to some on here, but its my first car and im happy so far! Anywho started off i missed out on the chance to buy a Suzuki Tl1000 so id thought id save some money and buy a cheap car for work, this been a 97 1.2 8v corsa and for 400 quid on very very good con was alright!

I dont have any pics of her as std but we all know what they look like dont we! lol First thing to change was the wheels, my mate gimme his astra cdx alloys with good tyres for 50 quid, so they went on, then the grill etc.

So as it stands now, so far ive:
Astra Cdx wheels
Gmax springs and shocks -60mm (i think?)
De badged grill with irmscher badge
de badged
de locked handles
punto rear wiper
tinted windows

On the inside:
Complete interior from a 2000 1.0 corsa, its all black and mucho better than the drab grey crap that was in there
Fitted electric windows
Blue Led dash kit
All singing and dancing head unit (dvd,vcd,mp3,usb,tv etc etc)

And my latest addition is the Calibra 2.0 brakes up front, bloody fantastic i must add!!!!! lol

Still to do is to fit the gsi spoiler (getting flattened and polished as we speak)
Fit the eps system (getting done this week)
and the best bit is to fit my x16xe, ohhhh i cant wait!!!!!!!

Anywho the pics, will update as i change things!!!








And one of my 2 babies if anyones interested! lol

Hello mate, I'm on 125ccsportsbikes.

Didn't think you were into cars, looks nice, although I'd paint the calipers a different colour myself!

How is your center cap held on

Looks like a 40mm drop to me

Graham thought that was you when ive seen previous posts, small world eh! Not a huge car person but if ive got to have one i may aswell get it how i want eh! lol

The ebay ad said 40mm but in person the drop looks alot more when on flat ground, either way i got given some nova 60mm springs, may try then one day when im bored!

The wheels were cheap so i threw them on was gonna refurb them and spray them a darker colour but instead i think im gonna go for some 16's, would love some alessios or softstars, but for the time being im happy!

Anyway some progress pics, out with old dash and non pas, and in with the new black dash and eps!

Oh and ned to fit my gsi spoiler when i get time!
