2005. c20let on p3 ecu made just under 300bhp. looked better. drove better.





although the pic is 2011, it looked exactly the same in 2014 when i sold it. made 586bhp @ 2bar of boost. was completely pointless.

genuinely dont regret selling it. it was zero fun by the time id gone too far with it.

I know mines only a Sport, so I'm not really playing on the same field as yours, but when I bring mine out I give it some abuse and enjoy driving it, despite how mad I am about keeping it looking clean and pretty with my ODDetailing...but I could never go the way you did or like Big Ron or any of the others done that way - just not my thing.

Looked great in the first pic, nothing new but it's a classic look (I'm biased tbh <--)

I did always think you were going too mad on it, could of had a really nice classic looking gsi right now. As long as you enjoyed it at the time, that's all that matters really. No point having regrets over a corsa.

The thrill is in the chase as they say. That car was quite an achievement, regardless of how useless it ended up being

No fun to drive like this, too much power for road use



Was fun like this as a c20xe




Don't miss mine at all. The fun was building it.

agreed in a way. when it became a nightmare to drive on normal roads, it became pointless. its ok for people that can afford to throw money at it, i couldnt so quit.
