This is the gallery thread for my 2007 C1 Vibe, bought as my first car just after my 18th birthday. Didn't bother with any significant mods at first because that wonderful winter was coming and I wasn't exactly loaded.

Not long after I got it:

How she looks as of 10/12/11:

My big passion is for old Japanese cars ie. Toyota Supra, Chaser, Nissan Stagea, Toyota Corolla AE86 etc. hence my car having a few insipred modifications(the knockoff wheels being one of them) and some genuine parts. I don't like huge flashy mods on small cars so i've also tried to keep away from stuff that makes me look like a chavvy boy racer. Throughout the thread you'll be able to see how the car has transformed to what it is now. So enjoy! :)

Thanks!. I've got loads of things planned, I just wish I had the money to pay for it all. :lol: I'm hoping to get a set of white alloys next, if that fails these are the next batch of 'mods' I intent to do:
    Rev & Temperature gauge
    Remote Central locking
    Sill Protectors
    OEM Mudflaps
    Tinted Windows
    ..and whatever else I see that's within budget ;)

I also want to fix all the dents and scratches from the previous owner and paint the mirror caps white soon. No performance upgrades yet.

Sounds good, I know how you feel mate, im skint student... Ive put in remote central locking (although its a tad broken...) mudflaps and tinted windows! along with debadgeing and red rear lights the back looks pretty nice now :)

make sure you get the proper mudflaps though, some on ebay for 15-20 quid, the cheep ones dont fit!

Yeah, thank god for the great fuel economy otherwise I wouldn't be able to buy anything! :lol: I've thought about changing my rear lights, but I like the look of the standard ones with silver bulbs as well. I might see how much a set(107) from the local salvage yard costs and depending on price, try them out.

Thankyou Bernard! :)

Remove the coloured filters from the rear lights and fit LED bulbs - awesome!

Alternatively, I'm about an hour away and have a set of red rears we could come to some arrangement over.

I do like the sound of that. :thumbs: Are the LED bulbs any brighter than the standard ones and do I have to change anything to get them to work?

I reckon the LEDs are indeed brighter than the stock bulbs.

Ah that's good then, the only problem i've had with the silvatec bulbs is they're not as bright as the stock ones. Cheers! :thumbs:
