    Hi guys, so recently purchased my first VXR from Vauxhall and having to wait till saturday to pick it up but though might as well sign up.

    So I'm coming from a 1.4 SXi which has been good but after testing the burg theres no competition "I'll admit I did cr*p myself)


    So heres the beast/beauty.


    Modifications wise I'm only starting with the basics at first

    Wind Deflectors
    LED Headlights etc.
    SMD Conversion
    Colour coding heater rings
    and so on...
    Just basically starting simple and working my way up. So any advice is appreciated.

      Thanks, don't Think I'll be on them lovely roads anytime soon, scared to use the power haha. First thing is getting it home and getting a feel for it.

      But after driving that I've noticed that my 1.4 has no power at all.

        An absolute beauty mate.

        I had a corsa 1.2 club as my first car (for insurance reasons, slowest thing going) but the difference is immense, although my corsa vxr isn't on the same level as your burg lol

        what modifications do you have in mind for the future?

          I came to my VXR from a 1 litre Corsa B so mine felt pretty quick at first haha, soon got used to it though and i still love mine 18 months down the line

            Decided for the burg over the standard VXR since it would save getting bilstein suspension etc.

            But modifications wise just starting small but eventually would like to improve the BHP
            My insurance allows me to add any modification for free unless it affects BHP

            So starting with cheap bits like SMD conversion, LED headlights etc. Will be making a progress thread and looking at others.

              That's pretty awesome. Who are you insured with?

              I wish I had got the burg to be fair but was out of my budget at the time. Recently fitted the burg front splitter and a k&n panel filter.

              I hope to upgrade suspension, exhaust and fuel injectors in the next 6 months before going for a remap

                Gonna be dressing the engine bay at first with the stainless steel pipes from enhanceyourcar. Still undecided whether to go for panel filter from Green Air Filters
                or get the Pipercross Viper from Larkspeed. Along with that the forge silicone hoses for everything else. Gonna be getting the forge brace bar, rear strut brace from EYC and front brace if one is available. Powerflex bushings, whiteline racing anti-roll. Already have the Bilstein suspension.

                So thinking thats all thats needed for handling wise. Gonna do some interior tweaks as well. more colour coding than anything else. Is it possible to get green seatbelts at all? I know you can get blue and black.

                GID screen and VXMMI if one comes available.

                But still having all these ideas and I havent picked the car up yet.

                  haha as long as you have this car the ideas will keep flowing. the possibilities are endless.

                  yeah I quite like the steel pipes by enhanceyourcar. im also interested in this, very very neat. I also want to get the brace bar but just trying to stay within my budget. they injectors, exhaust and suspension alone will take me well over a grand.

                  I went for the panel as I saw on a forum where a guy ran tests on his car cone vs panel (although it was a clio). he found an increase in bhp with the panel and a DECREASE with cone. not sure if this is relatable to the corsa at all but I played it safe with the panel.

                  since ive installed the burg splitter ive scraped twice on speed bumps even though im driving over it like a snail. I doubt you'll have the same problem but let me know if you do.

                  I have seen quite a few burgs with green harness seatbelts so they definitely exist. is it the harness seatbelt youre going for?
