Re: Engine Ticking/Rattle

If it's when the engine is warmed up, could it be the radiator fan? I'm not sure about all cars, but I think the fan will kick on at about 92 degrees....maybe the fan kicks on and it's catching on something? No idea, a very bizarre issue, but you should definitely take it to an independent garage, g...

Re: Corsa E 1.4T - Seeking advice for ECU remapping?

I will definitely upgrade to a proper hatchback at some point, it's just that insurance companies really don't like hot hatches in London! I'm about to get my 5 years no claims so hopefully that will help. Besides, I need to look into getting a property so probably having a hot hatch isn't the best ...

Re: What does everyone do?

I'm an IT engineer for a private firm covering schools' networking within inner city London.

I'm also in a band called the 999 megabytes, but we haven't got a gig yet.

:D

Re: Corsa E 1.4T - Seeking advice for ECU remapping?

Just took a look at the those springs + tyres, definitely good options! I definitely can't do it all at once, but its something to look forward to and save up for over the next year or two. I checked earlier and found a Quantum Tuning authorised place half a mile away so I'm going to pop in and see ...

Re: Corsa E 1.4T - Seeking advice for ECU remapping?

Hi, Thanks mattb_srivx for the advice! I'm actually based in North London, so a few of your options there seem rather far away but they certainly give me an idea of what the car is capable of! Maybe I'll drop them an email. I'm sure I've seen Quantum tuning somewhere.... Is there anything else you'd...

Hello everyone!

I've posted one or two topics already in other threads on this forum without realising that there was a place for new members to the forum! I'm glad to see there are other people out there who love everything about the Corsa E! I must say, I had the chance to drive the Corsa D, and I certainly prefe...

Corsa E 1.4T - Seeking advice for ECU remapping?

Hi everyone, I bought my Corsa E 1.4T back in late 2015 and can safely say that it is definitely one of the funnest cars I've ever driven. I've read a lot about how good the engine is, and definitely agree that it's great and has potential. I've always loved the VXR, but financially, it wouldn't mak...
