yea they are as reliable and as easy as a sport...and if you look after it, you will get a nice return. Even my R1 carb'd one was spot on as a daily. Started every morning and ran great.

Pretty good day to day cars. Don't expect comfort though. Their as reliable as the car the engine came out of I'd say if the conversion is done properly. Pretty good on fuel. Fairly quick too.

Make sure you keep an eye on bottom ball joints. I had one snap at 'motorway' speeds

Superb. Mine was solid mounted, i had to kick the hole out mine everywhere, hence i decided to sell it before i got points, bought it with a fucked box, changed it, i was always paranoid by the slightest noise thinking it could be something wrong but nothing ever went wrong.

great everyday cars, can nip to the shops and then race home on the motorway and return better fuel consumption then the 1400 and 1600 corsa

good on fuel on motorway journeys, my old gsi did the 200 mile home trip and didn't use half a tank, if you get one with solid mounts its a little tedious when going slow in 2nd (well mine was it used to lurch a lot) will be as reliable as your right foot allows, cracking cars i really miss my old one..

As long as the conversion is done right and the engine isn't a dug, they are quite nice to live with daily actually. Don't need a lot of effort to get it going, and if you don't have a ridiculous exhaust, they aren't loud at motorway speeds. They WILL go wrong from time to time, but normally it's just a sensor that needs replaced. Quite good on fuel if you're taking it easy too! I can get 40mpg on a run when cruising. But that goes down dramatically when you give it sport :lol:

I'm looking for a new car as mine goes to a new home on Saturday. I'm looking for another Vauxhall and have been looking at c20xe versions. I would love another Corsa b and I would like to know what c20xe Corsa's are like to live with everyday. Your thoughts please guys. Thank you.
