    Hi Chris, welcome.

    Generally I think the GSi is a pretty reliable car, try and go for a later facelifted version (03/53 plate onwards) as they made a few alterations. The weak point on the car would probably be the turbo, they can last anything from 2K to 80K. Make sure it has a full service history (regular oil changes are important for the turbo), and the cambelt should be changed every 40K.

    If you want to upgrade the power, there are plenty of options, just take some time to browse the forums to see what others have done and it will give you an idea.

    Happy hunting.

    If you get a good example, you will really enjoy it!
    Just make sure that it runs smoothly with nice progressive power delivery.
