    God, mine's done more than that and it's only a W plate!

    Not really sure what else to look out for other than the usual stuff to be honest. Good luck though, they're nice little cars are corsa sports.

    40,000????? :shock: not bad on a 97 mate musta been an old granny that had for a town car :shock: my corsas an L reg wi 140,000 on it ops:

    if ur gonna buy a corsa make sure the cambelts been done and check the oil if u see anyting suspicious leave it for the auctioneers cos u'll have nothing but problems also check the headlight connections i have had problems wi mine switchin themselves off and traced it bk to a fualty wire in the connection block :shock: which to sort requires a full wiring harness (so i'm told)

    Just been and looked at it, drives very welland accelerates great. its had a new exhaust new pads and disc's, full service and it has only done 3676 miles since last MOT the display doesnt work but i can change that with the one out of the works van they will put a new one in and i will change em back over
    my friend is going to see how much they can get it for, they took it in for £1750 so i dont mind paying up to £2000 with the cam belt changed of course. I maybe asking for a bit much but if u dont try u don't get do ya here's some links to some pics let me know what u all think.
