hmmmmmz i think its time me and the sri split up, i just dont love it anymore and tbh it gets on my nearves somtimes.

am 21 got a baby girl and just need more space and more performance, so please dont say "just get the 1.8" ive had two corsas and tbh dont want another corsa c.

quite like the corsa d vxr or artic but same applies i need the space, this is a right dilema, i like the astra vxr or gsi but dont want to be paying out of my ass for insurance and petrol, anyone in my situation got any recomendations ? ive looked at a vecci sri 150 but they tend to have high milage and quite expensive.

:? confused.com

heres some piks as its been a good jurney. :salute:
one year ago when i bought the car



lowwered on colies and white sris where next along withe a colour code and irmy backbox





repainted the alloys and centre console white with silver pearl




then i changed the alloys to orange to be abit different (around my area anyway, although this week ive seen 3 black c's with orange aloys, copy cats)





on the way to USC 2009

Any of the cars above are excellent choices ^^ but if you want to stay Vaux and dont want to spend alot, maybe the astra Mk4 2.0/2.2 Sri? i dont think there insurance is too much of a killer? My mates mum has the 2.0 and has abused it all its life lol and its still going strong!
Just one annoying question, im after colour coding aswell! so how much did you pay for that colour code job?? it looks brilliant! ive been quoted £250 does that sound reasonable??

i'd go for a vectra c, that's my plan for when my c's paid off.
Or go for an insignia if they're cheap enough.

i love the astra 1.9 cdti sri 5 door......sit amazing on the alloys they have and i think personally its the best looking 5 door vaux out there

its what i want when im nearly paid the C off, looks good, can remap to a good bhp output and still have practicality that a family man needs =] happy days (dont get a fiesta ST there **** btw)

corsa VXR will have the same issues with petrol useage as the astra VXR/focus ST etc..

And also the corsa D is only 5-6 inches smaller then the astra H anyways and inside space there is almost no difference unless your an adult in the back too..

But if money is an issue, astra GSI, focus ST170 for the petrols.. Astra 1.9 SRi (obviously :p) or an older BMW 3 series 318/320d?
