    I once went trawling through the vauxhall corsa forums.... I needed to change a snapped cambelt on my brothers Corsa B.
    All I could find was posts from idiots describing how they had (and I kid you not) sellotaped wires to batterys to power their "wikkid el ee dee's" "innit"...

    FFS...

    Hope you don't mean 13 inch wheels with that./ :eek: 13s are amazing.

    I wouldn't mind an early 70's clubman estate. However the other mini variants really don't do it for me to be honest.
    I suggested to the g/f, we get a 70's clubman estate between us, she wasn't too keen...

    Instead we've settled on getting a Rover P6 3500 V8 to share instead. :cool:
    So, that'll be the next addition to the "fleet"...

    I think a clubman estate would be the one Mini I wouldnt have lol. I've got a tax exempt Mk1 resto project which I'm hoping to put a 1430cc A-series engine in (which is going to be flippin RAPID) and a 99 Cooper and I love them to bits.

    Well done on the choice of car though, can't beat a good British car...maybe see you at a show one day!

    Next shows we're doing is the pod on the 22nd/23rd of august. Don't know whether we'll be in her Porsche or my MG, though?
    Think we are doing Goodwood in september, too?

    The general gist of my statement was - Corsas suck.

    BTW - the things on your car us "en educated idiots" have never heard of? I bet its an induction kit, some LED lights and a gear knob that flashes.

    Buy a real car with some webbers on it. Injection engined Vauxhalls are for girls.

    Why would I spend my time on a corsa forum unless I really had to?
    I'm only interested in propper cars, not silly little shopping trolleys.

    Oh sorry, grammar police are all over! Ever heard of a typo Mr.Perfect?

    And yes I have a flashing gear knob on my car, matches well with the neons and lexus lights on the car, not to mention the amount of tyers I've got through due to all the burnouts I've done y0.

    I don't think there's much better you can get than a MGBV8 or a Classic Mini.

    And I doubt they were driving around in Corsas. Both have infinitely better taste than that :p:

    I would much rather catch aids than drive either of those cars.

    I am not even bothered about engine moddifications on the corsa, the corsa is the best I can afford on the insurance at this moment in time and has decent specs compared to what most 17 year olds drive and does not look like a trashy 200 quid 20 year old car.

    What?

    Mmmh duno really, just assumed your a member of the corsa c forum due to replies like

    "omgz0rrz he hazz thousands postszz he r pr00000
    adotc iz nubzorzzzZ mega LoL!111!!!!!

    /sarcasm/fail.

    gtfo pl0x."

    Seems common on that site.


    I had a 1.4 sxi+ as a stop gap and although it comes 15mm odd lowered as standard (much like the 1.8 sri) it handled **** tbh. Wooden steering and no feedback made it a numb drive. But then again its not really a drivers car - its a cheap and cheerful bucket for the younger market were it certainly excells in (insurance etc..).

    I cant comment on the 1.8 as i havent driven one but i can imagine its OK. Should have enough poke and considering your age, its certainly a good contender for insurance vs 'power'.

    You've kept it smart and as its appears to be subtle OEM mods its passable. Its just the chav'd up image thats causing everyone to jump on the band wagon.

    I much prefer my 206, uprated suspension, rear arb, torsion bars and a few engine mods makes for a involving drive, plenty of lift off oversteer fun!! :p:

    Dellorto DRLAs are where it's at. I've never had much fun with the Weber equivalent (IDF)

    When I was 17 I had a 1.8 02 Focus. I'm now 20. I have the same Focus, a 1966 Mk1 Mini which is worth more than your Corsa and dosnt even have an engine.

    My other "trashy" 1999 Mini Cooper Sport would simply rape your car down the average country road - and gets alot more respect doing so.

    Some people have style mate. Minis and MGBs for example.

    Btw, you would be GUTTED if I told you my Mk1 insurance is £58 a year including track day cover...wouldnt you?
