Re: Turbo’ing my 1.4 LE worth it?

You can't just put a turbo on an engine that wasn't designed for it. Not without a lot of work and expense. Did you buy the car brand new and have you actually spoken to where you got the car from? If they have some 1.4 Turbos in stock they will be able to go through some figures and see what they c...

Re: 2015 1.4 Corsa SRI in Pepperdust

Its a 65 plate. I did a bit of reading in to it at the time and the larger 17 inch alloys and body kit push it into the higher tax band compared to the SRi trim. I think it's like a 1-2kg/km difference bit it's enough to push it into the next band. -1.4T (100bhp) SRi 3d (2 Oct 2014 - 31 Mar 2017) - ...

Re: 2015 1.4 Corsa SRI in Pepperdust

Boot spoiler and side skirts from the SRi VX-Line maybe? (you'd still get away with £30 road tax too). I was a bit annoyed to find out my road tax was £130 because of the larger alloys, skirts and spoiler! The sales person kept that quiet until I'd signed. The alloys from the white/red/black edition...

Re: corsa1.4 SE

The seats aren't great in the Corsa's unless you have the VXR with the recaros.
They don't really hold you that well, feel cheap and not really that cushioned or comfortable. My arse as sat in better :lol:

Re: I’ll keep my ‘66’ Plate thanks

I don't think I'll buy another Corsa again. Especially if the new one looks like any of the spy shots :shock: That being said, I've not really had any major problems so far with my 65 1.4T. It's relatively cheap to run and quite pokey with a remap. I'll probably keep it another 3-5 years as I want t...

Re: She's got a new car....

Do you not have any service history with it? That should tell you when it was last serviced and at what mileage.

Re: 4th year service

It's definitely worth negotiating on price, usually they'll move a little if it means they get your money/business. If your having the MOT done at the same time, make sure your not being charged full price for this. Most dealers do it for £27-30 when done at the same time as a service. Full price i...

Re: Can I switch dealerships during warranty?

Yes of course you can. I had to a few years ago when I owned a Corsa D VXR. The gearbox was making a grinding noise and the dealer I bought it from said it was normal and noise from the diff it had (it was the Nurburg edition with the fancy drexler lsd). Took it to another dealer down the road and t...

Re: Help with parts :/ do vxr parts fit my 1.4T?

Airtec do an intercooler specifically for the 1.4T Enhance performance do a de-cat and exhaust system for the 1.4T The above should see 190-200bhp when mapped with good quality fuel As mentioned, it's worth looking at the suspension and brakes because as standard they aren't great. You don't need to...
