Lovely car and work chap :thumb:

Who did the flocking ?
Cheers mate.
A lad on VXROnline, they were painted OEM but tat decided to crack under the summer heat so he took them and flocked them. Look much better imo
Nice work on a top car :thumb:
Cheers mate :)
I like the Corsa VXR, even though i'm not overly keen on Vauxhalls.

Looks a clean car, you thought about getting it mapped?
Yeah been thinking about it for the last 6 weeks or so. Reluctant due to P4 known to go on these but I'm on the look out for a few safety mods like injectors, fuel pump, recirc etc then i will likely to take this S2 (230-235bhp)

Been a while since my last update so here's another :)

Had a lot of bad luck with the car (Boost solenoid gone, coolant leak, 2 x 8" scratches and cracked rear bumper again!) lost interest but the car is in the bodyshop next week and decided to order a few bits!
Bought an Enchance intake before Christmas and wrap it in DEI gold wrap..




Millers CRX Gearbox oil from opie oils ready for my 2nd service :)


Just got to wrap my Intercooler hose next :)

What is the light output of the cree's like? Been looking at these for a while but wanting super crisp white light and not the blue tint ones.
Well they're only DRL's so the light output has no use but much brighter than standard. These are crisp white and no blue tint at all.

Some familiar looking mods there mate :lol:

Looks really nice mate, don't be out off by the p4 rumours, they're usually down to neglect or people not knowing what they're doing (or skimping on maps/tuners).

My corsa's been running stage 3 for around a year now with no problems what so ever, was mapped at Courtenay sport. Regular oil and filter changes (every 5k miles).
Go to a reputable tuner (courtenay, regal etc) and you'll be fine mate.

How do you rate the b14 set up? I went for the b12 dampers, also are you running any uprated braces or RARB?

No I'm not scared but before any tuning I would like more safety mods like injectors etc and it's all money at the minute. Wouldn't touch regal but it would be RS tuning :)

The B14's are epic. Even more so after I had a fast road setup!

Yeah I'm running a whiteline RARB and a DTS Bar along with powerflex engine mount, rear bushes and front ARB bushes :)

Edit: I remember the username from VXRO. Love the yellow K-Sports and alloy colour!
