No such thing as a 12v 1.2. Most probably 8v.

Look at the engine:



8v ^^^



16v ^^^

Not in no corsa ever to leave vauxhall...

There was:

1.0 12v, 1.2 8v and a 1.2 16v

NO 1.2 12v

Why do people assume I'm lying to them? I only do that in Photoshop.

The original question asked whether the 1.2 was 8v or 12v. It can't of course be 12v.

10w 40 semi synth, and as has been said it's a 1.2 8v beast. The only 12V in a Vauxhall is the 1 litre AFAIK.

Better trying to find someone who is just a normal bodyshop, not one who just does modified cars. They usually take more care in their work.
