I know mate lol. Well Alessio's/Softstars are my ideal wheel for Corsa's. I think I'm swung towards D90's/Twists out of the Porsche range.

I agree on the speedlines Beijing an iconic wheel and love them but that's also why I got rid of mine as I wanted something slightly different although I went for softstars which I know are equally as common is love d90s and can't help but think that the blue on the lip with a polished face or maybe the other way around would look awesome

I'm worried going as far as changing the rims altogether will take to much of a drastic step away from stock/OEM+

Where as just doing a subtle offset colour coding will compliment the look it already has without loosing to much of the stock/OEM+

Shame I don't have the money ready right now to do this idea, because these are a cracking price

I think the decision now is whether I want to take the step of changing the wheels or just doing the colour coding on the Alessio's.

This is why I thought I'd put it on my project thread, it's nice to get other peoples perspectives on it.

I think the easier/less drastic option is to just still with the Alessio's & do the colour coding which will probably resault with people either loving it for the use of the colour offset or hating it for painting an iconic wheel a colour other than silver, white or black lol.

My old wheels were only reps of Porsche twists. Obviously 4x100 and 15". Cool wheels and even cooler knowing i was the only person running them on a corsa.

Whilstever my Corsa Sport is off the road during the winter, the Mrs uses her Corsa B as a daily runner and we spend a bit more time looking after hers.

Spent a day cleaning & polishing her.











Some time last year, we picked up a set of black angeleye headlights for her car - however I've tried to put off fitting them but she wouldnt give up. Our first thoughts were 'evil' and I honestly think they dont look as chavvy as there meant to!!



Also added the wind-deflectors



My car club LN Customs will have a stand at The Fast Show this coming Sunday at Santa Pod, if anyones passing we will have her car there on show

Lights are shite. Put standards back in, remove crap stickers and spray the wheels a better colour.

As above really. Hate those lights. They're like the modern day equivalent of Lexus lights, people will be smashing them up in a few years

Car is very clean, definitely needs to be made to look meaner.

For practicality, I have 3 cars and the Corsa is only used for going to shows/track days during the summer so I only tax it for 6 months of the year and it sits in the garage during the winter.


Considering the Corsa is her first car and originally started life as a standard 1.2 16v Envoy, she's made a nice statement with it and its done exactly how she wants it. It's not to my taste with certain things, but thats because I try to keep my Corsa very clean and OEM+ style.
