    Yep.

    Good car, just needs the handling sorting, standard suspension is rather "wollowy".

    i had the 1.2 twinport sxi and wish i had never given it up. i loved it and thought the handling was fine in all fairness

    I had 125mph out of it (on private roads of course) so the 1.4 will be even better

    This was mine

    Quite interested in the views on this as this is the one the g/f has been looking at

    She's also been looking at the 1.7 (but NOT Racing) Ford Puma


    If you had the choice of the 2, which is the better car?

    Sorry for the mini thread jack btw.

    i'd say corsa anyday. Its a nice alrounder with modern looks compared to the puma which is starting to look a little dated.

    I'd agree and say Corsa, its just a better all round car than the puma. The puma will be far more cramped if you did ever use the back seats and the boot in the Corsa is more spacious.
