    Default Cheap, and easy mods

    So what are they? Just got the Veccy C last Saturday, and after some mods that are free/cheap, and quite easy.

    Only added a bright white boot light so far, and that's it. Probably de-badge the rear this weekend, and I'm after some new headlights/sidelights/fog lights, then I'm not sure what else after that.

    Any ideas?

    Not yet. I was thinking about it. Is it worth it?

    I'm very tempted to get the rear SRI diffuser done in piano black too.

    Yeah, I'll be getting that done too. My mate's got a bodyshop, so does everything for cheap for me. Done loads of stuff on my Corsa-D for dirt cheap, and it's a really good finish on them too.

    I've already got a sunglasses holder in the centre light. I also have a sunglasses holder from the Corsa which goes in place of the hand grip above the door too, which I may fit.

    What's the traction control switch? Can it be enabled on a 57 plate SRI 1.9?

    Not a fan of parking sensors. I'm a good parker as it is, and I'm not keen on how they look on the car.

    I have slight smoked rear lights as it is, so I think I'll leave them how they are. But I will be changing the bulbs for silvetec's. Thanks for the suggestions. Any other one's?

    Signum fog light surrounds, not sure how much they are for a facelift, but they're £28 for the pre-facelift
