    Default Corsa C 1.8 Sri

    Hi guys,
    Hoping to soon be in the market to upgrading the Metro. Can't jump straight up to anything Vectra sized just yet so been thinking about a Corsa C Sri.

    Any input from previous owners would be great as in what to look out for etc.

    TIA
    BigP

    Quick car, handling could do with sorting out (lowering).
    Engine is solid as long as it's had regular oil changes. Nothing much goes wrong with them.

    Check it's had the ABS recall done (should have a cover over the ABS module)

    Obviously cost wise, it's the highest insurance group for a Corsa C and running costs are higher.

    We were going to get one, but the 1.4 seemed the more logical step cost wise.

    Finding an unabused one is hard now tho.

    Cheers for that Keif.
    Running costs and insurance not really a problem as I do very low mileage but going for the 1.8 so I have a bit of poke when I do go somewhere.

    I know what you mean about the abused ones, there are a lot of ex-boy racer ones about.
    How is your 1.4 going? My mum bought herself a 55 plate 1.4 SXI today.

    Cheers for that Rich.
    I had heard they are a little heavy on drop links and ball joints. But I can handle that and the parts are not to expensive cause they are good old VXL.

    The hunt is on... lol
