    Corsa C 1.8 SRI..?

    Been looking at these recently, and are growing on me. iv seen a few facelift ones in silver that look very nice.

    just wondering if anyone as owned or had any experience of them, and in general what they are like?

    Good lil cars - but they are little! had 4 corsa c's in total

    1x 1.2 sxi - got rolled in style
    2x 1.4 SRi's - one pre facelift one post, both alright ish cars

    But the cream of the lot was the 1.7 cdti sri I had, fantastic on the motorway, with a tuning box it surprised alot of cars.

    As for the 1.8 it isnt as fast as people like to think, but it does the job, and you can find some with a few toys (full leather etc)

    As Andy says, the 1.7CDTi is the best engine they ever fitted. Wee cheeky remap will leave the 1.8 in your mirror.

    I had a 1.2 SXi, cracking little car. Had to get rid of it due to lack of boot space, I was tired of folding down the seats every day moving PCs at work.

    my m8 has got one - its a fast lil car
    he had a 1.2 sxi before and that was pretty boring to say the least, subtle changes in the look make the sri look much better than the other (boring) corsa's, only does about 30mpg tho!!!

    hope this helps

    0-60 will never be as good, but in gear acceleration was ace
