Opel Corsa B – Body Styling

20 June 2010 43 Comments

A while back I wrote a blog on one of my other websites about a friend’s Opel Corsa B. The response was so amazing that we have decided to post in on Automodified.

Opel Corsa has become more and more popular, almost as popular as the VW Citi Golf.
Opel Corsa’s body-styling parts are pretty easy to come by these days. Its especially easy here in South Africa as the guys that produce body-kits have noticed that many Opel owners have a tendency to modify the outer appearance of their cars
The great thing about buying a Corsa B is that there is such a wide variety of body-kits and styling accessories available for them. They are extremely popular and a lot of guys choose to modify the looks rather than modifying the engine. Anything goes these days, whether its just a nice pair of 15 inch mags, a pair of angel eyes or even a body-kit, Opel Corsa styling is just very accessible in South Africa.
Come to think of it, we know of 3 places in Cape Town alone that stock Opel Corsa body-kits. Modifying a car is all about the owners preference. Nobody can really tell you that your car mods look terrible. OK figuratively speaking they actually can, but at the end of the day its still your car and you need to be happy with the modifications you have done.
We browsed the internet and came up with a few nicely modified Opel/Vauxhall Corsa B’s that caught our eye.
You can also have a look in our Accessories section of the directory for body-kit stockists.

    I gotta agree with the blue one on top! But i also really like the black corsa. Still relatively standard looking…! He/she has done just enough mods to it without it being too over the top! Nice :p

    Of course the top Opel Corsa is the most styling of them all, its that super sexy intercooler sticking out the front that everybody is attacked too…

    Yeah, the euro look is becoming all the more popular. First the Golf and now the Corsa. I wonder what my Yaris will look like in Euro style ?

  • Blair (author) said:

    Hmmm your Toyota Yaris could look pretty wicked..

    Hi can some1 pls tell me what bodykit that blue corsa has at the top of the page and if you can purchase it here in sa, I really like it, and and its not the same bodykit as the other pictures posted on the forum under blue corsa

    Thanks

    Blair Reply:

    Zahur ill do a little bit of research for you, but as far as i know that bumper was a once off made in the UK. have you thought about importing one, we have a connection in Europe that makes wide-arch kits for European cars.

    [Reply]

    zahur Reply:

    Oh that sucks, that bumper really looks hot. I’d really appreciate it if you could get me some more info on it, even pictures would be awesome. I looked into importing bt its rather pricey, I think it would be cheaper to have a duplicate made here or something similar at least.

    Blair Reply:

    ill check on monday, it probably would be a bit cheaper having it custom made here. Ill see if i have the original picture of the corsa.

    Howzit, man.. what about a set of coilovers to drop your car to the ground. We stock kits for the Corsa B’s
    It all depends what you want from your car at the end of the day! sometime a drop and a nice set of wheels will transform your car drastically..

  • Angelo said:

    Hi everybody!

    I’m looking for a bodykit to fit on my Corsa B.

    Anyone know of places in Gauteng that sells them (excluding Autostyle – nothing wrong with their kits, I just want something different).

    Loving the blog!

    Cheers!!

    I found this page randomly and couldn’t resist commenting coz im about to lower my Corsa B 40mm on a set of 15″s and adding mud-flaps, my 1st major modification since i got it brand new in 2006…i almost immediately replaced the std. steering wheel for a smaller sports wheel as well as the pedals, both of which are tattered by now and will hopefully be replaced tomorrow while busy with my magz/suspension…other things ive played around with include a bee-sting radio aerial (removed), carbon-look bonnet guard (removed), clear lense rear lights (soon to be replaced with std.), sport mirrors (replaced with std.), carbon-look windshields (soon to be replaced), central locking/anti-hijack system, some CD/DVD/audio setups and a few different air intake solutions (currently customized Simota induction kit with cone filter, soon to be replaced by a customized intake using a K&N flat filter)…there have been a few very minor mechanical hiccups until now but i have to say that my Corsa B is very reliable and such a pleasure to drive, even after owning it for 6yrs it still surprises me at times!..the modification and styling options are endless, very inexpensive compared to other cars and easy to do even by yourself, if you know which way to point a screwdriver!…when I was looking for a new, entry-level car in 2005 so my options were a VW Chico (NOT a fan of those blocky-shaped VW Golf/Jetta’s) and i had my pen on the page for a Toyota Tazz (which I thought was way too pricey) when i got to compare those 2 along with a Corsa B on a used car lot…well, since then its been almost 140000km’s of reliability and pure fun! lol…i mean hey, its been 6yrs already but im only changing my wheels/suspension now, haven’t even touched the engine yet, plus there’s still so much to come with the tons of interior and body styling mods I have in mind…Corsa Lite 1.4i, alot more than you think!

    hey there, eventually fitted the 40mm springs on the 15″ but the mudflaps i got dont fit so i have to get the original Opel set…i fitted a set of pedals but within 2wks all of them came loose again! lol, dunno if i did something wrong there but havent had a chance to fit them again, been too busy and too broke to do anything else with the car since then…i dunno if its just me but my paydays are seeming very far apart these days…money talks but mine just waves goodbye, i cant say much more than that for now, cheers!

    Yo where in capetown can i find a decent bodystyling shop for my corsa/?

  • O_Jeezy said:

    What about Corsa Cs though, i feel they’re gaining popularity on the car mod scene as well. However body kits are hard to come by and there seems to be little variety with the ones available. Any one know of any good stockists out in Pta/Jhb?
