    Go for a 16v everyday of the week. See if your insurance will stretch to 1.6 16v they are the right side of 100bhp if you get a good un. Sorry I don't know specs well enough to give you details. All I can tell you is my missus drives a 1.2 16v SXI corsa and she can keep up with me when I'm pushing.

    lol.......ive got a 1.3S engined belmont putting out the same bhp (75bhp) as the 1.6 8v and, i was asking around for insurance quotes on a Mk3 1600cc 16v other other week, and cheapest i found was Norwich Unions online quote....about £1200 with 1yr's NCB and had a full liscence for a couple of months, that was fully comp....Adrian Flux wanted £2500+!!!
    Frizzel wanted £1800....but i pay under half of that for the belmont with them!
