I know youre not the biggest fans of Corsa Cs on here, but thought Id share mine on here anyway! Hopefully you all like it! Its a Sapphire Black 1.8 SRi model, I bought it completely standard back in 2009 but dont have any pictures of it. Within a week of getting it Id lowered it 40mm on Apex springs.



After a couple of months of owning it Id done a few other things, I replaced the standard exhaust system with a custom stainless steel exhaust with a 5x3 oval back box. I managed to get a set of 16 Team Dynamics Pro Race 1.2s super cheap, so couldnt resist buying them! I also lowered the back a little more, with a set of 60mm springs and got some smoked angel eye headlights.



I decided that I wanted to replace the front grille with a badgeless one, I got very lucky and managed to swap my bumper for a bumper with a Steinmetz grille and Cupra R lower splitter. The wheels Id bought werent in the best condition ever, my friend had a mint condition set of matte black Pro Race 1.2s and said hed swapped mine for them with a bit of money his way.



Unhappy with the ride height and handling, I replaced the springs with a set of FK Silverline coilovers and fitted a Whiteline rear anti roll bar. I also uprated the brakes to 280mm Meriva brakes at some point.

At this point someone keyed my car, meaning that the rear quarter needed a respray. I decided to make the best of a bad situation and got one side painted along with getting an Irmscher front splitter and Irmscher side skirts fitted!



I began on a couple of interior modifications at this point; I fitted a 280mm Momo Team steering wheel, Carelli leather bucket seats, stripped out the rear and fitted an OMP rear strut brace. Unfortunately I dont have any pictures of this, and the seats and strut brace have since been replaced with Cobra Monaco Pros and a Wiechers Sport bolt in rear strut brace.
The car went back into the bodyshop for a full respray, colour code, badboy bonnet and flushed boot fitted.



Team Dynamics had started to become really common on Corsa Cs, so I decided to started looking for some wheels. I saw a set of 4x100 Compomotive TH2s for sale and couldnt resist them! Wont be to everyones tastes, but I absolutely love them. I managed to get a set of Hi-Spec 4 pot brakes for a steal, so got them fitted as well!





Id had a John Ashley decat manifold on the car for a while, unfortunately the manifold cracked, and knowing it wasnt the best exhaust out there I decided to replace it with a full Piper 4-2-1 system with sports cat and 3 outwardly rolled tip.



That pretty much brings it up to date, heres a spec list:

Engine Modifications
Piper 4-1 manifold
Piper sports cat & centre section
Piper back box with 3" outwardly rolled tip
Dbilas Flowmaster
Sparkling Graphite engine and fuse box covers

Suspension Modifications
Hi Spec 285mm 4 pot front brakes with braided hoses
Black Diamond grooved rear discs with EBC Greenstuff pads
FK Rear springs
Powerflex bushes (front ARB, wishbones and rear beam)
Spax RSX coilovers
Wiechers Sport front strut brace
Wiechers Sport rear strut brace
Whiteline RARB

Interior Modifications
280mm Momo Team steering wheel with Momo boss kit
Black alcantara gaiters
Carbon fiber rear door cards
Cobra Monaco Pro bucket seats
TRS 4 point harnesses
Stripped out rear seats
Lockwood SRi door sill protectors
Pioneer DEH-P5100UB Headunit
Alpine SPR-17S Components

Exterior Modifications
Extended bonnet and front wings
Colour coded arches
Hydraulic bonnet lifters
Irmscher splitter
Irmscher side skirts
Phase 2 smoked angel eyes with 8000k 55w HID's
Smoothed boot
Smoothed petrol cap
Steinmetz front grille
Team Heko Wind Deflectors
Tinted rear fog lights
Tinted side repeaters
16" Anthracite Compomotive TH2's
205/40 Avon ZZ3's
Stud conversion with anodised red nuts

I hope you all like it!

I remember! I've been registered on here for a while now, only just made my first post today though.

Ahh right, I'm not showing on Godfrey's stand. I'd already had TFS all sorted before I'd been invited to that group!

Thanks!

I wouldn't mind painting the interior black, I have loads of cans of paint in my room ready to do it. Other than that I've not really got any plans for it.

I was planning a Z20LET conversion, but after speaking to a couple of owners I was put off the idea unfortunately.

I've got an R53 Mini Cooper S now, with a stainless cat back system, custom air intake, and soon to have a 15% reduced supercharger pulley as of Friday next week! It's nothing fancy, but the performance for the money is great! Think my car choice is more controversial than your choice of wheels

Ahh yeah, I've seen you comment on the group now I think about it!

I quite like the new Mini's. My mate had a JCW one and it flew!

More than I care to admit. I've never done a video of my exhaust before, might do one if the weather picks up (which looking outside, won't be any time soon!)

Just from browsing on here I got the impression that most people don't really like them.

It's actually back on the Pro Race 1.2's at the moment. Decided to take the Comp's off over winter!
