    Welcome mate - I think you'll need a Turbo or a 2.2 convertible. Good choice.

    check out the gallery for pics of convertibles, failing that - we'll all try and dig some out for you.

    you will have to log out and reload the welcome page to get the menu.

    Insurance -

    Turbo - 16E
    (because it is now listed as have 200ps - where previously it was listed at 192ps & group 15E) - There is no difference in actually performance - both have the same acutal BHP - was just a marketing and insurance thing from Vauxhall to help make the package more attracive.

    2.2 - 13E

    Hi T-Bone,

    Are you sure thats the reason for the ins group? The convertible turbo is always one higher insurance group than the coupe. So the convertible turbo is 16, whilst the coupe is 15.

    I do not know why a convertible is a higher insurance group, other than the risk of roll or vandalism to the roof.

    oh yeah - thats the other reason ops: - more attractive to theives and higher security risk.

    not sure about the rolling bit though - highly unlikely i would have thought! :shock:

    Currently the Coupe Turbo is 15E
