right matey, welcome to cheap mods R us! I'm in the same boat as you mate, loads of ideas, very little cash. So what I do when I'm a bit skint is all the little mods that are cheap but effective, and are long jobs so that you can make a really good job of them while your waiting for your next pay cheque (or student loan) :lol:

A few tips (as I ain't exactly tell you what to do... for that would be stealing my ideas) :lol: :lol: :wink:

Spray paint, caliper paint, trimming, LED's (bargain!!! see cobra148 on here) bulbs, colour coding, de-badging, and a damn good clean and polish usually does the trick!

Start with things like painting bits up then move on to gear knobs and stuff then into the daddy of moddifying like bodykits, engine mods and alloys! 8)

A lot of the guys on here are loaded, they say they ain't but their pockets are buldging more than mine and it ain't cause their excited! :wink: They must have really well paid jobs or that old that their insurance is about a tenth of what we pay!

The best mods come from being different, imaginative and creative so give it a shot, you can always try again if you make a mistake... well most times, others you'll have to just scream and shout at until your red in the face then have to fork out the money to replace it! :x

I think u will find that most of us aint "loaded". we just work hard and spend most of our cash on our cars as we enjoy it and its a hobby.

Oh and insurance being a tenth of waht u pay..i very much doubt it...

my corsa c, had to put it in my dads name cos i couldnt get insured anywhere with mods...and in his name it was skinin me 1000 +

yeah I do the same or I try to, when your only on £4.50 an hour its hard to get the cash together for even the simply things, then theirs insurance which is £85 a month and finance £230 a month, with petrol, tax, food, drink drink, drink and not to mention drink! So if there's a good job going for more than £4.50 an hour I'll take it! :lol:

Calm down people!! :roll: It's supposed to be friendly banter!

It doesn't matter what you earn, the point is YOU do YOUR car how YOU want to at whatever speed YOU can. Simple! :wink:

cheers sliversri for the idea's, as for the headlights, im gonna keep them. i got my car from the local vauxhall place in chesterfield called blakes. i think yuor getting ripped off with your finance at 230 a month, mines only 174! plus i pay 900 a year on insurance, withone years no claims, but 3 accidents under my belt, it doesnt help.where in south yorks do u live, the bar i work in is after staff and pay 5 an hour!

yeah but I bought my corsa SRi all done up it was a year old when I got it with 14 k on the clock. So cause it was a used car and not new I didn't get 0% finance so the car was 9k with the interest on top so £230 is about right. Don't regret buying it as its saved me thousands to do one up myself, it was what I wanted so it doesn't bother me that its already had alloys and a kit fitted, still want to do a lot of stuff to it anyway!

I live in Doncaster matey, bout that job prob to far for me to travel.
