    Well I have an SRi-T (Same engine as GSi) and for a daily driver its great. Get about 28MPG and sitting in jams a lot of the time. The GSi a good car for peformance and practicality IMO.

    my SRi-T is an everyday car, does mix 50/50 of motorway/town miles and gives me 32-33mpg at the moment, so very good on fuel imo for what it is..

    That is very good. I was thinking bout getting either a black or arden blue gsi then getting eds stage 1. Does this stage include the exhaust system at all?

    I use mine every day. It gets used for commuting, lugging stuff around and even see's a bit of racing now and then.

    I only get around 18-23 mpg though, but I didn't buy the car because it was econmical.

    Ours is used on a daily basis and it returns around 30mpg. Not bad really as it doesn't go that far.

    IMO best to get the precat and a good cat back system on before you get phase 1 then you should be around about 230 Bhp

    At the mo my car is doing 23.5 MPG but that is town and hard driving and its a joy to drive
