    Corsa 2011 1.4 Sxi

    Just a few shots of my new corsa, his name is Troy (any fans of motor racing will understand) looking for suggestions that are limited to aesthetics atm due to warranty.

    Current mods are:

    VX styling pack
    VXR rear lights
    LE 17 black alloys
    Full de-bage (black rear griffin planned)
    Tinted rears and rear windscreen
    Heko's
    Sidelight bulb change (white/blue)
    Headlight bulb change (white)
    Interior courtesy light bulb change (white/blue)
    Fog light bulb change (white)


    Plans to come include painting v grill black perhaps, vxr side repeaters also smoked, maybe rear wiper? not sure though looks like a lot of work with potential cutting off of motor. hopefully this will turn into a progression thread lol.









    BEFORE



    AFTER





    WHITE :D

    It was updated in 2010, with new petrol engines and slight mechanical and interior tweaks. Facelift wasn't till 2011.

    All new front end, with further interior changes on some models. If you look at mine it is the facelift SRi, you will see the difference at the front

    The the bumper trim splits a lot of opinions lol, some hate it, some (like myself) arn't that bothered by it but I don't know of anyone that loves it :lol: The only change at the rear is the new shape Griffin.

    I use Honda Type R Aerial, basically original just unscrews and Honda one screws on Think some people do have Shark aerials but need boosters.
