  • My poor corsa

    My poor little Corsa has a bit of a problem it seems to be leaking a lot of engine coolant, well about half the bottle every 4-5 days hopefully it will be under warranty.


    Also does any body really know what good coilovers go best on the corsa vxr because it really needs setting up properly and lowering as i dont think it handles that well it just seems to be all over the place somethings not right.

    Does anybody know where i can get a 3 gauge stand for on top of the centre console or would i have to get one made?? ideas would be helpful thanks

        Leaky Rads are common

        Spax RSX coilovers are meant to be very good, but should you only want a Spring set-up the Dap's come highly recommended by many also.

        AS for gauge pods, theres a two gauge pod available from MPG, but not a three.

            Well most of them are about problems anyway mate, just things like this makes me go further and further away from even buying one mate.

              agree that i dont will be buying it again, but there is still lots of ppl that is runnig the car OK already long time

              did you saw thread on forum (no matter which forum) with topic "no problem today with the car after 500 miles trip" ???

              lots ppl are comming on forum just to ask if is something broken to find out cheapest way how to fix it, once is something broken & out of warranty, with the corsa there is few problems asked again again again and again

                Thanks for your comments
                do you have the website for mpg for me to look at the two pod gauge tom?
                im thinking new brakes and coilovers i think just need to stiffen it up just seems well to soft so i dont know if springs would do it and what sort of lowering spring height is good for it not to scrape on anything with the 18s

                thanks

                    We went for 20mm Eibachs and an LSD and the handling is now more than spot on. No body roll and she's outhandled most things I've come across so far!
