    2.2 is na
    2.0 is the turbo. The engine from the mk4 gsi astra.

    And yes it'll not lose any money. It'll only go up.

    Turbo one it is then if he's to be believed

    I've just checked on auto trader and didn't realise how rare these actually are. The one I drove was my mates, maybe I can knock him down abit then keep it locked up for ten years then resell. Ten grand don't seem to bad going off auto trader, I may investigate

    A good turbo example will be about 12k

    Always check the crash bars underneath though apparently it's common to find a crashed one cause they all track them cause of how well they handle.

    He was selling because was moving to Canada and didn't want to take etc, I'll find out what he did with it. The more I think the more I think I've missed an opportunity

    Financially maybe. But if you've enjoyed the corsa who cares.

    Haha yeah, I want more power but don't have faith in the corsa engine so maybe keep corsa as daily and have another weekend kinda car. It's wierd that after a while you get use to look and power of car and it becomes the norm and not so special as was etc.

    Anyway we've hijacked the thread a little you need to go back to telling him why the astra is the superior car etc

    No...we need to convince Adam that the Corsa is the superior car! Might take some doing though.... he'd burn every Corsa if he could.
    The VX220 is certainly now a collectors car and is unlikely to depreciate. It's basically a lotus Elise with different body panels. I think prices are lower than the lotus, but I'd be inclined to go for the lotus with the later non rover engine. I drove one a few years back, they are truly remarkable in terms of handling and fun. The Corsa is a close second for fun though!!!
    All the other stuff mentioned comes with astronomical running costs, hard to justify. I think I saw a post on vxro recently by someone who had owned one of them and got 8 mpg, yes, 8!!!!!

    Wow 8 mpg . That's crazy! Definitely couldnt use that as a Daily.

    I agree, I'm not sure if Adams ever drove a corsa. Wonder if it's the actual car that he doesn't like or just the reputation

    I tested a corsa and astra in 2009. Corsa first. Was ok but was just taken in by the much better power feel from the astra. The thing pulled so much better.

    I don't actually have anything against them, except maybe the reputation, but astra rep is hardly much better these days with them so cheap and in the hands of morons.

    I just like to take the mick . Worked in kitchens for 10 years, and the banter that goes on behind those doors some of it would make your hair stand on end lol
