how do, and welcome along, hope you enjoy the forum, how did you find us?
car meets wise were trying to arange details for a little ice breaker meet, but when it turns nice and warm in the summer, we tend to go to a lot of shows, mainly usc at santa pod, (see show thread)
and as for a little engine in your corsa, dont worry about it, all cars are welcome, if you look in the performance tuning tech page theres loads of info there but if you list your engine details i'm sure we can come up with a few tricks for ya, plus corsas are a verry good base for engine converions Wink

any questions just ask and hopfully see you at the next meet alien

they are a complete calibra set with back leather seats too. in the blue one Ive still got two calibra leather heated seats. also with the black one I need to raise the back end 20 mm so i can get over speed bumps without smashing the inside of the arches. yes i still have the morettes but i need to replace the lamps as they have gone rusty over the winter, but i might have them done in the same colour as the alloys to blend them all in.

I think they are alright just a ball ache putting indicators in the bumper.
The calibra seats are much more comfortable than the corsa ones and they look good as well.
