    Hi guys was on the old forum and though it was about time I joined up
    Names wyley and I'm from Dublin Ireland,
    Bought this 00 Arden blue Opel corsa b bout 2 years ago with the intention of just learning to drive in it but that didn't last
    Been pumping money into it since
    Can't remember most of the stuff done to it do ill write up some of the spec plans and throw up some pictures hope you like them.
    When I got it

    How it is now put Its a bad picture and she's lower again now

    Some pictures in between





    Will try get some more up to date photos as its changed abit
    Spec
    Gaz gold coilovers rear coilover unit
    Gsi body kit
    Calibra leather interior
    Good ridge braided brake lines
    Cavalier 256 front brakes
    Front strut brace
    White line rear anti roll bar kit
    Front wishbone poly bushes
    Raptor back box
    Front tinted depos
    Rear German lights
    Plans

    Plans are
    1. have a roll cage being delivered next week
    2. Strip out back half of car and remove sound proof
    3. Respray back in arden blue
    4. Paint the cage same black as trims
    5. Convert to 5 stud
    6. Paint turbo fan blades same anthracite and good tyres
    7. Finish interior by painting a and b piller black


    Purchasing a gsi corsa aswell hopefully in the next weeks
    Super rare over here so looking forward to it unsure what to do with it think ill brake it and fit 1.6 to this as I can log and afford it properly now
    Can't afford the upgrades I have planned for my c20let so will be done in good time

    Have a bit of a update now guys actually managed to find a gsi there's a very very very small handful of these over here
    The shells pretty decent with only the bonnet boot floor and boot lid to sort shells solid
    But the paint is in bits so unfortunately it ain't gonna see the road under my ownership anyway
    so the plan is swap the 1.6 into my blue one
    and fit the 2.0 turbo to this and make a decent track car out of this
    ive the whole loom out and dash out so I'm going to drop the engine out Friday and try get it in the blue one over weekend right so some specs
    its a vauxhall corsa gsi in grey
    1.6 gsi
    4 branch manifold
    decat
    full Ashley exhaust. Lovely rasp from it
    superchipped ecu
    lockwood dials red leds
    richbrook gear knob it's pretty sweet like a type r metal one
    full bilstens shocks 60mm rear eibach and 40 front
    speedlines with 4 new tyres
    gsi brakes with drilled and grooved discs

    The blue corsa has now had the grey gsi engine fitted to it just waiting on a gasket and she will be running the weekend

    I'd love to see the red GSI as original as it can be, if it is a genuine gsi anyway

    Hello guys been a while since I logged in but been browsing about
    Lost track of what's got done to be honest the red gsi has come a fair way but unfortunatly she's not as genuine anymore
    I've about 90% of the goodies built up for the blue let
    C20let f28 quaife diff full 6 point Sparco cage and Sparco strut braces rear disc beam
    Brand new rear calipers new pads and discs all round refurbished 288 front calipers 5 stud hubs rear are new and 2 sets of cav turbo fan blades
    I'll let the pics do the talking for now and I'll write up a bit at the bottem
    ALL COMMENTS WELCOME !!!
    The gsi is the run about while the gsi alloys make the blue one loom **** IMO
    Also have this c20xe Astra


















    Bought 6 of these


























    Finishing off buying bits to get to work on blue one






    Getting the blue one ready for cage









    And my Astra
