Hi all - get mine in a week (66 plate, grey 90 dci S Nav). 

Why did I get it? I like the looks, relatively inexpensive, cheap to run (I hope) 

My question: What modification have you done that I should consider?



On my initial list are car mats & neat phone holder.  Then to consider a central arm rest. 

After that I have been reading about:
Mena software for the Nav system (possibly a rear cam [for fun], 3/4G connection [if the apps can take advantage]). 
Underseat sub woofers [if the sound system isnt up to too much and the addition is reasonably subtle - but I am not a corsa driver]
Engine chip [intrigued, but a bit reluctant...and maybe something to play with after the warranty is up]

Hi and welcome. I haven't changed anything on my 66 plate and quite happy must be an age thing, although I do look at accessories like sill covers, wind deflectors, roof bars but never took the plunge. All my other cars I've tweaked including the plug and play engine chip, upgrade speakers, tinted headlamp lenses. It seems the armrest you fancy has mixed reviews on here, search and have read before you buy. And hope that you enjoy the new car!

Thanks monkey

I am not jumping at the mods....just new owner excitement. 

I will have a good read before doing anything. Thanks for the heads up on the armrest

As my dad used to say.....

Its a tin can with wheels. You spent plenty on it, why spend more ?

Keep your cash in your pocket.

Recommend fitting front and rear mudflaps , the plastic ones on eBay about £20 are the best and use one of the original screws to secure . The shape of the doors get all the muck up the side . They improve it and reduce the spray considerably .

Agree, mudflaps worth while, I bought from Aliexpress (£16, free delivery). They sound same or similar to above.

Not sure about mobile phone holders these days, you're not allowed to touch your phone anymore so probably no point in having a holder?
