    If getting the 2.0 GSi is a option do it , you won't regret it

    Not having driven the 2.0 sport I wouldn't know but I'd guess it has the eco-tech engine where is the Early GSi's have the 150bhp red top.

    They also have the body kit to match

    good luck finding a none rusty 'proper' GSi

    these still go for silly money.


    don't bother with the 2.0 its rubbish, mines the 1.8 and is very slightly quicker, the 1.8 is mucho cheap insurance as well.

    Dont rule out the 1.6 either, has you never heard what SBD can do to this engine.
