I bought this back in july 2011 to replace my Vectra gsi that kept giving me grief and emptying my wallet.lol I saved it from going to car heaven as it was supposed to be scrapped through the scrappage scheme.lol When i got it it was on roughly 20k and full service history and completly standard, the only things ever to be changed were the tyres,cambelt and a service every year. When i picked it up it still had in the glovebox the air freshener that the dealer put in the car and the thing hanging off the rear view mirror to say its passed an inspection and the radio tuned .lol
In these pics i had already added some genuine vauxhall mats and the carbon fibre engine cover, also i had to put new number plates as they disintagrated and the exhaust from the cat back as it was blowing and also some genuine mud flaps as them and the mats didnt get ticked as extras from the factory..Now for some pics of it not long after i bought it.

Its not 100% mint trust me but as near as your gonna get for a car thats 14 years old and never garaged.lol it has a few car park dings(only tiny) but i have OCD or so im told so it bothers me.lmao i will get them sorted out and a full valet to correct the paint and get it looking like new again when i have a job. If the job hunt doesent go well i dont think i will sell it as i wont find another like this. Its sooo reliable probably the best car ive ever owned in that sense. Ive had it two years in july and the only things ive done is mot,tax,service and the battery died completly so had a second hand one on it which is still going. Haha

I back to blacked my archs today with SMOOTH PEANUT BUTTER.lol bloody suprised it works so well. Not easy to use but does the same job as expensive cleaning products. Haha ive done a half an arch to show the difference. See the pics




Heres the whole side of the car. I only actually done both RH archs,rear bumper and RH door handle and bump strip to see how it worked then my hands were like blocks of ice so i gave up for today.lol

Tbh the bumper tops are ok. Its the archs that have faded and needed doing. But i noticed earlier while cleaning the rh rear arch that two of the clips have broken and its flapping about lol I will prob just get 4 new archs and they wont be faded then.

An absolute perfect and simple corsa. Really nice mods (like it much more with the twists) and a nice height with standard clean bodywork. Love it
