    nice example of a corsa,
    you said you did nt want to try and make it look faster than it is? one question then, why have you put sri badges on an sxi?
    my advice bin the sri badges and just put irmscher i badges on the doors, and bin the huage irmscher chrome badge on the interior dash too!
    then you will have a nice subtle little motor.

      I agree with your point, but the car is a little quicker than the standard SXi and so I felt the SRi badges were appropriate. It only carries 1 person, Me. It has no extra weight in the car, all glove compartments, cubby holes and the boot is empty. The rear exhaust may or may not add power. It has only ever run on Optimax, I know you get more boost out if this fuel on bigger engined cars but every little helps. The tyres are always inflated to 38 PSI to give extra grip and less tyre slouch. Often I put the rear seats flat, this reduces weight. (Like why you crawl flat across a frozen pond so as not to break the ice). I regularly drive with around £10 of fuel, again weight saving, and often I use engine cleaner in the fuel load to remove debris from the fuel injectors. The car is always clean improving aerodynamic progress. I have timed the 0 - 60 at 9.3 seconds, and this shaves a couple of seconds off the standard time. Hope this answers your question.

          Try getting a pair of glasses, it helps with the focus of the words. Maybe it's age. Specsavers are good I hear.

                Dear Both of you...
                I am fully aware the car is not a performance car, It was never intended to be and I don't even consider it nippy let alone a "track weapon".
                My points, although you disagree, do have some weight to them, but the jesticular manners of your replies indicate that despite whatever points I make you obviously know better.
                The rear seat thing, It is rare that I fold them down, but it has to be said that when folded they remove a bit of weight. Vertical seats exert more downward force because the energy is focused on a smaller surface area. When horizontal, the weight is spread and so is less per Centimetre squared.
                With this post I am starting to regret ever joining this thing. If you read my posts you will see I am a normal Vauxhall owner with an interest in cars and driving. I certainly treat other forum members with respect and have an open mind about people's opinions.
