hey, i went round my mates house on monday and his dad is a complete t**t! All nite he was ****ging off my car cus it ent the powerful. He has a laguna "sports tourer" 1.9 diesel. I has enough of his going on so i said that diesels are ****, he said to come and drive my car and feel what powerful engine feels like. Iv previously driven a 1.6 16v c2 vts with 126 bhp compared to the laguna 120. to cut a long stort short, i am dedicated to getting a car with more power than his dads car. Im 18 and i have a years no claim so insurance is an issue. I could go up to group 13 max. Im not interested in gettin a red top in mine but i would possibly get a convered corsa. What other cars would be a good option??

Pulsars are great (gearboxes are a tad fragile i hear if you starting playing with power), but, i got an insurance quote on one, i have 6years no claims, they wanted £1500! Ok, i only did a couple of quotes purely out of interest, but that was the cheapest i got! :S Get a calibra turbo if you can afford it! not mega expensive, and lovely to drive (i say! :D )

Even a C20XE'd Corsa would eat that car for breakfast.....

Tell your mates dad to get on YouTube and type in "Nova vs Ferrari" and see what he thinks of that. Try "Corsa Turbo" too.

He's got a 1.9 diesel in a reasonably large car.....my C16SE would probably give him food for thought :laugh:

Don't listen to him, he's just talking crap.

Yeah, there are always gonna be people faster than you on the road, and people who are always gonna put you down, you just have to get on and live your own life. Dont live your life according to what other people think.

But go for a Honda CRX 1.6 VTEC think there around 160bhp modded, not too shabby.

If your not into the shoebox car then BMW 318is E36, pull up in that and that will definitely piss on his bonfire! its do able as my friend owned one when he was 18, and now he drives a BMW 540 he is still only 19.

CRX's are cheap as chips and realiable (its a honda lol), they have 160BHP standard btw, supposed to handle like a good 'un as well, good cars, although they getting on a bit style wise.

Yeah but when the facelift models were first made they were so ahead of there time there only starting to look a bit dated now, i still think they cut it with the best.

Wanna get one with the elec roof, bit heavier than without, but so stylish.
