First one because it was cheaper than a Clio and modded better than Fiesta.

Second one because it was my brothers and it was easier than finding a good one.

Third one because it had 2 years free insurance.

Fourth one because I wanted a rally car.

Fifth one because I needed bits for the fourth one.

Sixth one because I was bored waiting for the fourth one to be finished.

They're such a bitch sometimes, it makes it rewarding to own one and beat the thing

Got my Sport purely for the performance, I could not find another small, insurable nippy car that looks nice and wud put XR2's, XR3's & saxos e.t.c in their place.
I dont have one bad word to say about mine really, other than Vauxhall wirings a bit shit!

wanted something fast for my age, with all electrics and looked pretty good. Corsa fit the bill perfectly.

thing is, it rattles, the ride is shite, it keeps breaking and smells inside, but i still love it
