An enterprise hire car (small green square sticker on rear)

Orrible rear chrome bar right down on't bumber.....meh

front end though!! Looked almost VXline/VXR. Looked tidy in a metallic (new) grey (?)

Great improvement over the original J, shame about the rear Chrome bar though pah, tacky.
NO pics sorry :( was cuppla cars in front on the commute to work!:zzz:

Also seen my first facelift yesterday too, I shouted with excitement "Oooh that's bang tidy!" and pointed to it, and as it drove past it was a rather 'tidy' blonde driving it to which I got a punch from the misses. :cool:

Thank god for that! After suddenly deciding to go for a 2 year old J today, I thought the changes were going to be groundbreaking and I'd be all disappointed
However, no need to worry it seems - maybe the Sri trim & fog lights help out in that regard though

Well Janitor, worry not, I got my 12 plate in early August '12. Very happy with its looks - like an Astra, the facelift J is too close to the Corsa. SRi trim looks well.

It has definite hints of GTC from the front and i dont mind the chrome bar but the rear boot latch hasnt been reworked and it spoils the look at rear slightly. Should of been smooth like the GTC.

The one thing they should have improved on the back end is that pathetically dim reverse light.

The J has already been out long enough for a facelift??? lol
Been abot 3 years, but the mid sized hatch market is a very competitive sector, so GM/ Vx/Opel eill be wanting to keep the sales up in a frankly saturated area, where there is such abundance of makers & models, my head would hurt to make a choice if I didn't know which marque to consider :dontknow:
