    Default Converted The Wife

    Finaly converted the wife to Vauxhall from Ford. After all the recent agro with the Ford dealer and Ford themselves my wife has decided to get rid of her Focus ST170 to a Corsa D 1.3 cdti club.
    Its a 56 plate in the best colour for it (red) and its the 5 door version.
    Does anyone know of any performance boosters for it and is there any problems that they have.
    I will put pics up when we get it on Monday.

    I was quite suprised by how well it went and drove, and it actualy drives better and is more comfy than her Focus and with a mpg of between 65 / 70 on a run it gives Gordon Brown a kick in the nuts.

    I have a 07' 1.3 CDTI (90) Astra Estate (company) and its suprising how well it goes for such a small engine (big turbo lag when cold though!) Very refined as well....must work well in a corsa!

    Oh and 30,000miles so far trouble free
