i can get it done for 200 for labour but i dont want a corsa anymore. The engines are slow compared to alot of the other car manufacturers out there.
I mean look at it this way:
1.6 16v GSI = 105bhp possibly 110bhp
1.6 16V Pug 106 GTi = 120-130 bhp

yes then add the extra insurance cost of a 1.6 16v corsa compared to a 106gti.... big difference! then the build quality of the corsa and the pug, corsa kicks arse....

haha, insurance seems to not be much more for me. Only 80 extra. No comment on the build quality, as long as it goes fast. lol
