    Default Confused Corsa owner?

    Just had a chat with visitors at a friends house (wife dragged me out to cheer me up, facing a big vets bill for my little show kitten and he'll still likely die).
    Saw they had a 2007 Corsa, mentioned I had a Vectra SRi which started life with the same CDTi lettering on the back. He promptly told me his was an SXi and a far better spec'd model than the SRi, he had the same engine as me, 1.9 "150" and he's never have another as it's so slow and gutless.
    As he said a few other things that sounded iffy, I looked it up when I got home, Vauxhall main site list the SXi below the Corsa SRi, and the only CDTi engine in the range is a 1.3 90bhp.............
    Since when is that better than a Facelift Vectra SRi 150?

    they also did a 1.7 125 bhp, but I don't think that was available in the SXI, only the better SRI.

    Me think he not knoweth his ar553 from his elbow.

    Some people are simply ill-informed while others just like to talk out of their anus. I quite like to point out when people are doing the latter, wins me no end of friends, I can tell you.

    Im sure the only smaller car in which the 1.9 120/150 engine is available in is the Astra...

    Whilst on the Astra topic lol, im sure it goes very well with the 150 CDTi as it perfroms well enough in the Vec!

    Yes, I found that on the Vx site (1.7 in SRi) Came to the same conclusion myself, normally I would have commented, but as we were at a good friend's house and these were good friends of hers let it go for once.
    He also told us a particular cd, an 80's compilation, was on offer in the local Asda and at No1 in the charts. We passed the store on the way home, fancied a copy, so called in. They've never heard of it and it hasn't been in the charts recently. Found it on fleabay.
