    My Corsa Life - Loads of Pics

    Paying this car off monthly as i'm only 18 but hopefully if my apprenticeship goes well, I'll have a Corsa SRI in about 3 years. It's only a Life i've got although my insurance is like £1000 and i'm still not on my own insurance.

    When I first bought it, the sound system was a first for me being 17.

    Sub - Vibe CBR 10" - Delivers good vibrations
    6x9s - Cant remember the make
    Front speakers - Fli (total crap now that I look back)
    Head Unit - Sony MEX BT



    And yes that's a leg in my boot =].

    After that I got my windows tinted at Pentagon in Glasgow. And also debadged it.

    Back - Midnight
    Front - Light Smoke.



    After joining the forum. I followed the tutorial on painting the V grill. So after a few days of waiting for paint to dry... I think it needs a few more coats of lacquer but i'm happy with it just now.



    Last week I bought some LED running lights and my dad and I fitted them. I know its not to a lot of people's taste but I like it. Corsa_Rab from the forums also got my LED sidelights that go with my strip lights =]



    I am aware of the left bulb not being as bright. I'm really not sure why that is.

    A few days ago I bought myself some new 17" alloys. I'm not quite sure on the make although the small cap in the middle says dynamics. So i'm not sure if that's the make or not.



    Here is my car at present:

    Im getting the surrounds when I get paid in 2 weeks or so. As for the tinted side repeaters - Will it not look ok with just the surrounds?

    Im not spending a grand on a styling kit lol. I'm only planning on keeping the car for the next couple of years . And I know most people aren't keen on the running lights.

    Getting a black spoiler sometime this month for £100 fitted . Also, on lowering, I always have people in the back seats and in my area there is alot of pot holes so I wouldnt want my tyres rubbing on the arches. I was thinking 30/40 drop though.

    Tyre shine??

    Yeah the vxr repeater surrounds will look good on their own, but seeing as your car is black and red, I personally think they will look even better if you got the tinted repeaters too. Im sure i seen another red and black d on here with them. cant remember whos though.

    As for the styling kit, you could prob pick one up for £500, and £200 painted...depends if you think its worth it.

    The only stuff I bought from halfords was the sound system

    Running lights were online as I bought some from halfords but they snapped.

    Wheels were from a site called topgear or something.

    Got my new surrounds today and they went straight on. Although when I slid the indicator to the left, the wee bit broke. Just used that stuff thats in a tube? Not glue.... Cant remember




    Ordered a fly eyes kit last night so hopefully that will appear sometime this week and i'll get that fitted

    I know the LED's are not to everyone's taste but I like them. Also, they will go well with the HIDs that I'm being nearer xmas

    As for the Boot. The boot never really opens so I'm not really worried about it being tidy although I might Just sort out the wires on the 6x9s.

    Thats the one thing my Das has said a big fat no too. That and a black roof haha! Maybe next year when my bank account rises a tad i'll get a styling kit. I can get vxr parts pretty cheap. Getting a vxr spoiler (black) fitted soon hopefully. Also got my fly eyes kit in... well....at the post office as I was working and couldn't sign for it.

    With the fog lights, I don't have any buttons for it in my car as I've only got a Corsa Life.

    Thanks a lot for your comments! Much appreciated!
