Try a 1.4 sport. Can't go wrong. All electrics and fancy bits, plus a bit of performance chucked in.

I thought 1.4's were exactly the same performance as a 1.2 - Just better fuel economy? The electric gadgets in 1.4's are nice though :) Far better than the Merit stuff!

No the 1.4 sports are quite nippy, definately not the same as a 1.2.

1.4 16v's are the best :D , even the GLS is just as good as the sport, same engine just cheaper to insure :) (just thought I'd say that :D ) that's what I really want, I'm not too keen on the 8v's but is it true that they are more reliable than the 16v's :confused:

The cars as reliable as you make it. If it isn't well maintained and serviced problems are bound to arise.
Get one with fsh and lowish milage you'll be fine.
The bonus with the corsa sport is that the interior is miles better.

only time mine went wrong is when i abused it, tried a water-injection system and it blew the head gasket on no.4 (dizzy end), otherwise the engine has been 100% reliable since i rebuilt it 2 years ago.

That is true, but with the sports you get a better suspension set up and they handle better, after driving my 1.2 for a year, my 1.6 sport felt like it would go round corners at any speed and didnt seem to have any bodyroll, of course I got used to it pretty quick and now it doesn't seem as impressive lol.

Dont get me started on 1.2 handling, it is shocking, suspension is far too soft, body roll is ridiculous, i really not fond of it feels like jelly knowing me im going to roll it, even when not pushing it lol it will be the death of me.

Lmao, very true there was a lot of bodyroll, would be nice to have a car with almost no bodyroll
