Hy guys. So this is my blue 1.2 corsa c. I've had this car for 3 years time in wich the car had sufered little modifications interior as well as a little bit exterior. When i've bought the car i had a little dilema: to go on a tuning mod or to leave it on as original. So the decision was to go on original mod with a little bit of tuning step by step. No modification to the engine as for the moment will remaine unchanged. Hope you enjoy it. ?

Right now i'm working on my front lights. This is secret for the moment.
? It will be something different. And i've made a little test on the coupe for the full wrapping of the car. But the biggest change will be very soon as i expect to receive the full wash system for the headlamps Very rare on corsa.

Very nice looking motor mate.
Makes me a bit jealous as I've been thinking about doing up mine corsa.
Just don't really have much time on my hands now.
I think for now I just look at yours

Nice. I would like to do something about my instruments. The standard black ones are not great for long night drives.

I know. They are very boring all black. For the begining you can change the needles from the dials.. You can put from megane 2 or opel adam..

Nice. I have considered that myself, paired with OEM xenon headlights and auto-leveling system. Unfortunately my facelift bumper will not accept pre-facelift washer nozzles so i had to abandon it because the cost of new facelift nozzles&actuators is ranging from 500 to 700€ which is a bit too much for me.

It's not the same system for fl? Curious. As for i will not put xenon aftermarket. OEM is very expensive. As well as the autoleveling. And it's not impossible to do the autoleveling but it'a little bit hard. And you must have some knowledge to do it.. And patience :p

So this is how my corsa looks at night. I know... i'm a light freak. ??. Don't be tricked by the intensity of the light. It's because of my phone.


At the my little engine i have't made any changes, just maintenance. Sometimes it was good to have some more power like 1.4 or 1.8 but here in Romania it's a little bit complicated to change an engine and be lega. Lot of paper work and too many rules

Yep, part numbers are different. Actuators are mounted to bumper in a different way, and nozzles sit differently on a bumper. If you compare both bumpers you will see that pre-facelift bumpers are a bit more protruded outwards than the facelift ones.

Knowledge, patience, and most likely MDI or tech2 are required to program the auto levelling unit.

As for xenons... I found a working oem(ish) DEPO D2S headlights for a good price. One of them had the levelling motor busted and required opening to fix the broken adjusting mechanism. Perhaps one day i will install them just for the looks.

Btw; i really like the amount of light in your car. From which car did you get those sun shades with light in them? And from which car are the climate control knobs?

Ricer!! I can't get away with OPC looks on a 1.7 diesel van with 5 seats. My 0-100 is only slightly quicker than a glacier's

Pitumh, I know it's been a long time, but I am interested in the Vectra B sun visors myself. Vectra C are easier to get, but I have found B ones with lights. Did you use the connectors or is it easier just to cut them off and run long wires to the map lights? Did you wire them to the map lights, so that they come on individually when wanted?

I have a Combo Tour, which has a different windscreen and deeper (I think) sun visors, but I don't mind these being shallower as long as the width fits. Could you measure yours - if you have time - from fixing point to clip point, so that I can be sure that they would fit my Tour?

I got measurements from a Vectra B illuminated visor seller on ebay. The distance from bracket to clip point is 305mm whereas my Combo Tour is 280mm. Should work in a Corsa C, though and I can link the ebay listing if anyone's interested.

Hy.. It is possible that the sun visor from Combo a liitle bit longer from Corsa C. I will measure today and write here.. As for the wiring i just cut the connectors and wired directly to the map lights.

Thanks for replying, Pitumh. The Combo visor is actually shorter (280mm) between the brackets than the C, but deeper.

I've been asking people selling Kia Carens, Volvo S60 and other illuminated visors to check the measurement, but they don't reply. A pity, because I figured it would be a simple wiring job.
