Best modification is to take the street sleeper approach. Don't bother with any external modifications, just drop a 5.7 litre Chevy lump in. That should surprise a few burberry capped Corsa drivers at the lights...

Hi Dale, before you buy alloys from Halfords, have a look at Rochford tyres in Essex. They are very cheap.

a car that new and you want to keep the warranty, just a good service i think. LOL

There replacement panel air filters available, and if yours is a petrol block then there are suspension braces for struts. Diesels are out of luck as i think the diesel fuel filter is in the way. Throw in some LED bulbs, paint a few interior parts. a decent sound system.

Some more extreme mods you need to import from the US. i've seen a carbon bonnet somewhere, lower springs fom Eibach, lower front and rear braces from Ultra Racing.

Here's an example...might be for the old Rio only (08/00 on it says) but you'd have to speak to them, I just had a quick look. I'd like to improve my suspension at some point, but wouldn't want to lower it.

Obviously, take out the DOTs and put real dots in!
