i've had the corsa for a good few years now, dont commute to work by car so never seen the point in buying anything else. I get all the smiles i want from this car plus i can sort it if it goes wrong . Yeah the rolling road day showed a good result for her 164bhp

yes but the bonnet was done for another corsa which was crashed so rather than spending a fortune sorting my bonnet i used it instead, i am undecided by the bonnet but in fairness i dont really bother with looks anymore, functionality!
