Ysidfas White T-Jet

Hey guys! Picked up my new ride yesterday, and Im madly in love with it already!

Spec:
- 59 Reg 1.4 16v T-jet Sporting 120bhp
- Bossa Nova White
- Panoramic (Skydome) Sunroof
- Optional extra 5 Spoke 17" alloys
- Factory Rear window tints

I can honestly say, Its fast!!! Coming from driving a 65bhp 1.2 8v active GP, Double the power and almost tripple the torque is such a nice feeling! Pulls to 70 (and a bit more ) sooo easily!

The panoramic sunroof really sets the car off! especially with the 5 spokes

Plans:
- Team Heko Wind deflectors (Bought need fitting)
- Re-vinyl pillars and rear roof section to make the whole roof gloss black
- Eibach Sportlines
- Spend countless hours keeping it spotlessly clean (already filty after doing 100 miles on soaking wet roads )
- Forge/GSR intake
- Remap

Not 100% sure on tuning it up for serious power (vl36 A500 turbo ect) but its early days yet

Thoughts and comments all appreciated

Re: Ysidfas White T-Jet

have fun with keeping that clean all the time must be nice coming from the 1.2 if not a little scary at first! I got my t-jet after having a tiny 1.2 corsa, never been so shocked in my life! a good drive home

its a big step from 65bhp to 120! haha The power along with a newer clutch, the ASR light was flashing most of the way home

UPDATE:

Fitted Team Heko Wind deflectors
They were a doddle tbh, after reading @homeward tips, just peeled the tape, slotted them in and pushed the metal clips in with a screw driver covered in a cloth SORTED!

I went to withdraw the cash today, she said 24 hours notice.. so that'd have made it about 14:00 tomorrow for collection. Earliest she said I could have it was Saturday morning. To me, that doesn't seem like 24 hours.. more like one working day, but now I have to re-arrange collection

Are you going to be getting a front bumper splitter thing for where the numberplate is? (sorry I don't know what it's actually called - my mind is fried)
