    Default First pictures of my Corsa VXR after clean :)

    I've recently got myself a 59 plate Corsa Arden VXR and haven't added any pictures since joining the site so I thought I'd clean him up and take some photos just for some advice on what I can do with him?

    Just put in some of these that i ordered from eBay really good service I thought only took 2 days and they were here this morning. Was a pain getting them out had my mum and dad outside with me trying to get the bulbs replaced and did it with alot of fiddling but managed it with only removing the fuse box cover! These:

    Excited to see what they look light tonight in the dark but they seem nice so far just turning them on whilst it's sat on the drive.

    Enough of the talking here is my car:

    Went to buy this Brake caliper paint from Halfords this morning it's the only blue they had it's not the colour of what is on the tin (The red paint had that blue colour on the tin its just the colour of the tin):

    Is that the best paint to use on the Calipers.

    Also the centre caps on the alloys i think i'm gonna buy them new because they're weirdly scrathed, then i think i'll paint the circle around the vauxhall badge in that cap blue.


    Also have my eye on getting the back 3 window tints done for £110


    Please tell me what you think, all comments are wanted but please be nice lol! It's mainly standard and i'm 19 so not much money to modify the car with and i don't want to touch the engine so i don't want to remap it etc. Under the bonnet is standard but i like the look of the coloured hoses inside the bonnet does anyone think this is worth it?

    Cheers for looking

    Looking very shiny, what polish and wax combo do you use?

    Keep it as standard as any mods on your insurance at 19 will send it rocketing! Lovely example of an Arden Corsa

    I used a cap full of this in a bucket with 2 kettles of hot water and then filled to the top with cold water:

    Yeah the tinting sounds good.

    Lowering improves the handling quite a bit. Feel like a new car to drive, the standard rolls far too much in my opinion
