Mods I've made to my 2017 Silver Corsa VX Line

Post by CorsaVXLineMatt » Mon Aug 12, 2019 9:20 pm

So it's been a few weeks since I purchased my VX Line and have added a few little treats to the car as suggested on here (all for under £120).

- Wind deflectors on the front and rear windows
- Personalised number plates (inc personalisation at the bottom of the plate)
- Replaced aerial with a short stumpy stalk one (now gets better reception)
- Chrome foot pedals (second hand)
- LED footwell and rear footwell lights
- Interior white LED bulbs (front and rear)
- White rear number plate bulbs
- White front headlight and full beam bulbs (still need to do the front fogs)

I've also purchased some rear window privacy/sun shades to act as rear tints (cheaper than actually getting them tinted and I can remove them too) - which are due to arrive from Vauxhall this week - currently 30% off from Vauxhall Accessories.

I wanted to add some subtle mods but nothing to turn the car into a tacky mess. Thoughts?

It's very pretty
You could do a little tutorial on how you put the front and rear foot lights, I would like to do it in my opel corsa.
Thank you.

The footwell lights are simply one of these kits: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/4X-Car-Inter ... 0011.m1850

I got the USB version as I have one of these which allows me to run my dashcam, my Satnav and the LED lights at the same time: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Dual-USB-Car ... 2eb018202b

1. Run the USB cable along the plastic trim under the passenger side footwell.
2. Plug it into the adaptor (which you can tuck away in the gap between the cabin filter area and trim).
3. Push the first LED strip on one of the short cables behind the radio console area (there's a small hole next to where the cabin filter sits) so it pops through to the drivers side. Cable tie underneath the footwell.
4. Mount the second LED strip under the passenger side footwell under the glove box, once again using cable ties.
5. Run the two LED strips with the longer cables between the carpet and the centre console and stick to the bottom of the front seat runners (not in the channel itself but along the sides of both driver and passenger).
6. Turn on and test. Took me 20 minutes.

Note to switch the light colours with the remote, you'll need to point the remote at the passenger side footwell.

Link works fine for me.

It's the £14.99 Richbrook stumpy one (item number 307220).

Hi
Whereabouts did you get the aerial if you don't mind me asking.
