I thought i migtht get a 1.4 Sri but the insurance would be to high.
Has any body got the performance details for the 1.0 corsa C, is their much difference in performance between the 1.0 and 1.2.
I really like the arospeed rs-gt's. Iv'e seen them in 18's on a honda civic type-r and they look huge. Just imagine how big they would look on a corsa.(stand by for virtual car!) :lol:
Cheers everybody.

1.2 is quite nippy and insurance shouldn't to too bad as it is ins group 3 I think.

Also the 1.2 has twice as many valves as the 1.0 engine.

Go for the 1.2 mate, but if you want even cheaper get the 1L - thats the only good thing about the 1L. I'm on mums insurance and its only £300 a year. Been getting quotes to see if I can afford to get it in my own name, but no way- cheapest I've found is £1200. I've been driving for a year too, and did the pass plus!!!

My advice is get on one of your old dears insurance, then you can get the 1.4 :thumbs:

Yeah but once you hit 20/21 insurance comes down quite a bit then, and a lot of garages will give you free insurance on new cars too then. I remember shopping around and even VTS's offered free insurance to over 21's.

But your right, the earlier you get some no claims started the earlier it will start to get cheaper. But on the other hand if you need to make a claim then its all to hell

I'd go for the 1.4 coz i've driven both the 1.2 and the 1.4 and I know the performance is so much better. But you are to your own and you have to make the choice in the end
