    Indeed.

    I've provisionally bought a new car tonight so all going well my last Corsa will be going next week.

    Got to be a better option than the gsi offering, cheaper too!

    Yes, very impressed with the 1ltr TBH; gave it a spanking up and down the dual caridgeway last night and it felt almost as fast as my SRI did up to illegal speeds...its probably geared shorter i guess. No doubt after 100 a SRI/VXR would walk away from it but i'd put up with that for the mpg gains and £20 a year tax!

    Power wise Pumaspeed seem to have kits that take them up to 205 brake but they're 2.5k so not worth it IMO, that said a remap will hit 170 brake which would be a nice boost for a few hundred quid...and still outdo that new GSI, even if tuned.

    Only thing is a lad at work had the lower powered model and said there is a questionmark of the gearbox syncros but i'll be used to that have had an M32! Hopefully since the one i'm getting only has 22k i'll dodge that for a few years at least.

    Looks smart! Mountune do a MR165 upgrade for these, plus the usual Springs etc.

    I’d genuinely be happy with the current Mk8 ST-Line tbf.

    Fiesta looks good. I've had a fiesta in past and enjoyed it.

    I don't like the looks of the new gsi and the corsa E, I'm not a fan of the thing at the front near bonnet or the rear. They have changed the car to make it look more 'plain' if that makes sense, the corsa D vxrs look meaner to me. GSI and E don't look like performance cars. The interior may be better but everything else looks like a downgrade to me. Obviously power down grade on gsi.

    Well said.

    End of the day the J could have been awesome if it had the option of a decent sporty auto box like a DSG and had AWD.

    Also they need to start offering the sporty variants with a number of different body styles like Ford do with 5 door hatches and estates. You lose loads of customers who need the extra space but don’t fancy a Siggy with a thirst engine and 500 quid road tax
