General Chat about other Cars (non Corsa C's).
Basically i see a lot of threads asking opinions on what cars they should get next so, as a bit of a guide i think a list of cars and pro's and cons might help people pick and stop some of these cartypea vs cartypeb threads.
So to start it off il chuck a few cars and pro's and cons out there.

So my friend bought a Sony XAV-68BT for his 2006 Astra.

Looking to purhcase either one of these roadsters in the near future. Was sorta leaning towards the Mx5, however concerned about it's lack of naturally aspirated power. What do you guys think? :D

I have a corsa c 1.7 d van . Has it got a primary fuel pump in the tank .??? Thanks.
Guys, my mate drained his battery and car wont open, and his keyhole in drivers door is damaged, so cant open the dooor. He has big holes in front grill, I've got an Idea that it would be easier to open the hood to get to the battery itself. Any suggestions how to do it?
What can you say about this option?
Manual gearbox F40 engine Y30DT
What to look for, apart from DMF?

Well after a lot of searching for ideas on how to get bluetooth for my corsa after being ripped off by an advertisement saying my aftermarket unit is bluetooth ready, i stumbled across this:
Spotted this in Beaumaris on Anglesey
‘Lit up like a Christmas tree’ doesn’t quite cover it. Moving pieces of art, embellished with massive neon lights and bling-tastic chrome; something between a science fiction robot and a Las Vegas arcade. “Decotora” trucks (translation: trucks decorated with illuminations), are the emblems of an...

Hi all, was going to post this on AON, however seems to be a lot of knowledgeable people on here, anyway does anyone know if I need to remove the exhaust to replace the handbrake cables? Haynes says so though Haynes has been wrong before.
planning on getting one, but cant decide on the engine.
was thinking 2.2, but from what ive read its thirsty.
2.4 derv better on fuel but i live in london and dont do much mileage, so might cause problems.
havent really thought about the 3.2. £500 road tax.
Actually, spearmint corsa. Anyone on here want to own up?
Never sure where to post these

I say non-sport as my insurance wont insure me (i'm 19) if the car has a sport title attached to it. eg. Polo/Golf GTI or Suzuki Swift Sport
However, They will insure me on a 'base model' car with a 1.6 engine. eg. BMW 316i or Audi A3 1.6
So throw some ideas/links :yummy:

This may be a silly question may not be, but I just want someone to confirm.
I recently picked up an R53 with 18" Worx GP replica alloys.
What pressure do I inflate these to? My corsa had the stock sxi's so I referred to handbook but I'm not sure what to do with aftermarket alloys.
