Hi Guys,

Thought id start a topic on here, been on here for a while and have a few corsas, starting with a Arden blue Sport,Carabic blue GSi an now my Glacier white GSi.

I Was lucky enough to find a decent GSi as my last one was completley rotton beyond repair

I have recently picked up this 93 L Reg GSi with 57k on the clock ! with a solid chassis and the early C16XE engine.
The car has quite a few mods including;
8K H.I.D'S
Coilovers
16" Speedline Alloys
4-2-1 manifold
De-cat
Cav GSi Calipers 2.0
2.0 Drilled And Grooved Discs
Stainless exhaust system
Rear de wipered
Mantzel Power Box

Was thinking of going down the redtop route but decided against that and going with a LET conversion :O

I wanna keep the car quite original an factory looking.
Im going to get a set of 14" GSi rims and have them powder coated in anthracite or have 5 stud conversion and cavvy turb rims cant make my mind up ??

Wind Deflectors Genuine
Headlamp Covers Genuine
And just general odd an sods

Heres some pics of the said car;


Bit of a sorry state after wheel bearing collapsed



In the process of fitting new bearing kit;








Will update with progress;

Thanks
Jamie

Yea mate full M3 kit, wasnt practical for the mrs so had to go, but now due to change or circumstances the GSi is going to be converted, quite surprised the C16XE pulls very well in this car.

Here is the state of the old wheel bearing !

The outer bearing had got so hot it got stuck on the stub axle, so a new stuby was fitted
