    VX220 instead of the coupe??

    Thought I would ask the opinions of people on here about the above. Ive got a 2003 1.8 Linea rossa Coupe that I love and hasnt let me down, but have always loved the look of the VX220 and really wanted one.

    Ive been doing the maths and with a small loan and selling my coupe I could afford a VX220. I would have to use it as an every day runner doing around 22-25miles a day, so what do you lot think? Am I just being mad? as suppose the VX220 is a weekend car really and is there any great issues with them?

    Oh I could always use my girlfriends Corsa B 3days a week or something to lessen the miles done on the VX220 as she catches the train and I just drop her off and pick her up from the station!

    If you dont need a practical car (for luggage) then the vx220 is a fantastic car - bumps are expensive though.

    Headlights equate to 700 each

    supposed to be ace little cars,ive always liked the look of them.

    AFAIK they got great reviews and supposedly the only thing that let them down was the lack of badge prestige (but we're all vaux heads so thats no issue!!!)

    As said, you only live once. If you have more reasons to get one than not to then go for it.
