only if you remember watching it with Janes Hunt and Murray Walker in the commentary box sharing a mic on BBC (for free).

The car is now home, bit crowded on the drive but it fits, and I put the new headlights in (bumper half removal needed).

 

Lots of little things to do before spring and a go round a track.

I’ve still got the Corsa, but due to the lock down I’ve not been able to get on the track....yet.

 

in the mean time I’ve been tinkering about.

 

1 - fitted the leather door cards from a VXR (was given them for free)

2 - replaced the awful Android head unit with a nice Pioneer system

3 - fitted centre gauges (horrible fiddly job)

4 - VXR remap from 150 to 205bhp (tried Bluefin first, not very good so refunded and now running a bespoke Courtenay Sport map)

4 - Brand new Brembo 4 pot front brakes (from the Nürburgring model)

5 - 16mm spacers & coilover adjustment (10mm higher)

6 - twin exit club sport exhaust system

 

Removed a lot of stickers, the previous owner loved them, and fitted a few little things like new clear side repeaters, OPC Line rear badge (covers a paint defect) and removed a lot of stuff inside that wasn’t to my taste and returned it to standard.

Ok it’s not an RS, but having a little project like this is very rewarding. It was a nice car to start with, but now it’s even better.

 

Tempted by:

1 - bigger intercooler

2 - VXR Nurburgring gearbox with LSD

 

It never stops does it?

I can’t wait to get out there and have a go. Love my RS, but there’s a lot of joy to be had in a well set up slower car, track or road.

 

Your Fiesta looks great, getting rare those ones now. Nice throttle bodies.
