If it does turn out to be a copy i'd sell it on and get gm one It will look so much better as the copies can look a bit chunky

Interesting choice on wheels too. I think they will work well

I have looked everywhere for a GM one in Arden blue but most of them have saxo spoilers on plus i cant really be doing with selling it because i cant afford to buy a new one Yeah my boss told me to go out the back and have a look and he said if i wanted them they were mine for FREE so i had to bite his hand off because i hadnt seen it done on here before

Yeah it will be a long time till i finish it Being 15 does help and it doesnt. The good thing is i dont have to pay tax the bad thing is i dont get paid much so updates wont be very often i have the wheels and the spoiler already and i dont get the car till next week sometime so its so boring waiting on it to be finished cheers

I dont work in a vauxhall garage lol it was just a corsa that came in with a fucked engine to the little garage i work at so my boss offered me them as soon as i walked in the door I can still get discounts through trade though .I am going to college after the summer to start the mechanics course and i will be on an apprenticeship.I paid 1300 for mine with 77,000 odd miles on the clock i thought it was a good deal considering most others round my area

Well yours is pretty new if i remember right - so maybe that has something to do with it, and besides that price is prob about rite for what it is. That silver breeze 1.2 i was talking about with 87k is 1997 and is one old lady owner from new and the husband is only selling because he cant bear to look at it any more because she died, but on the up side he is going to let it go for 575-00!!! Happy days AND it has 6 months tax and 7 months mot!! Might be cheap for a reason though....

Well then thats why it was probably more expensive, although i was looking at a silver on which was 1395 aswell with alloys and a spoiler and it was 99, so your price is probably about right as i said. I cant wait to start driving , just 3 more months to go...i wish i actually had a car though. When do you get yours back from the garage then?
