Did they say why the pistons had gone? Is it running lean and overheating? If they're just replacing them and not looking at a possible underlying issue, then the same thing could happen again. Out of warranty, where you'd have to stump up for it to be fixed yourself. I'd want a new engine me, but I...
If your going to do it, I would wait until AFTER the first service. Reason being is that they do give the car a good check over to make sure everything's running right. They also check for any recalls and you can also request them to check for any software updates for the ECU and intellilink. Might ...

Had mine in today. BOTH front wheel bearings shot at just over 17k miles both changed under warranty, even though there is only around 4 month of it left.
A remap is always worth it on a turbo car. Even if you 'only' see a 20bhp and 20lb-ft' gain at peak, the power curve is improved right across the rev range. So it's not all about the headline figure if you will. £250-£350 for that gain is pretty good. People spend more than that on a full exhaust sy...
Yeah, sounds about right. I had mine done at SGR in Rochdale, would recommend if your not too far from there. Mine made good power. They got 178bhp and 203lb-ft torque (275nm) out of it on their dyno - completely standard but run on Tesco 99. The guy doing the mapping said it had a strong engine (it...
They all remap to the same or thereabouts. Just the restricted to 100hp 1.4T variant gets a bigger gain because it's so screwed down from the factory. I had mine done a few months ago (1.4T VX-Line 100hp) and it has completely transformed the car. Even on a White/Red/Black edition it would be worthw...

I have heard a few people having to have these replaced on Corsa's. Seems to be a common ish issue. Same as wheel bearings lol.
I don't think there is that much difference hardware wise between the engines. But not sure if the looms and other little things might be different, so could need a bit of custom wiring to get it to work. The Corsa D VXR are a bit down on power compared to the E aren't they? Old ones are 189bhp new ...
