        From The Pics It Looks Like I've Got To Rip All My Door Cards Off Etc.......I Really Don't Want To Be Doing That??

          the door cards and seats have to come out... really easy if you just logically take the bits out. Up to you though... i would rather take some trim out than drill through the bulkhead.

                i wouldnt know about the corsa, the only time i have been in one is when VX lent me a 1.0 then a 1.4 so tried to get out of it as quickly as possible . seriously though have a look in the boot, if it does have one you will need to find a spare slot (where there is no relay present) i.e. if your car doesnt have an option like heated seats then there will be a spare slot in your fuse box for a live feed.

                  How do you connect the wires?, if I remember correctly there is no tags, it's a female tag in the fuse box and the actual tag is on the relay fuses etc.

                    correct. its not as scary as it sounds to connect up, the only reason i did it that way was to avoid taking trim up around the front of the car and having wires everywhere, this way there are no live wires in the engine bay (non oem ones anyway)

                      Exactly, so you soldered some male tags onto your wires and just pushed them in to like the heated seat space as there was space?

                            behind the glovebox theres a grommet with the main loom going through it.

                            Take the power cable through there, its easy as ****
