    Default Anyone know about Calibra 2.0 16v?

    The inlaws are after a second car, something a bit sporty but cheap (<£750). They've looked at a Hyundai Coupe, VX Tigra - Not much else in budget! They've seen a few Calibra 2.0 16V about with 90 -150k miles on 96-97 plates. They'll use it for about a year and get shut. Anyone got any pearls i can pass on? Anything to look out for / avoid?

    Thanks

    im taking it by the year its an ecotec 2ltr they want,main problem with these engines are sensors,or theres the 2ltr 8v these engines are pretty much bullet proof,or theres the redtop mainly fitted to earlier years than what your looking for but good fun,there are two types of redtop an early one with no cat and a later one with a cat,also the ignition system is differnt on the two,in my opinion if they want sheer power,go for an early redtop,if its reliabilty go for 8v,or eco is good on fuel and pretty nippy but be looking at replacing sensors at some point
