Can't be doing with my 1.2 8V any more, just not got enough power for me.

Want something thats around 3-3.5k to buy, and below group 10 for insurance purposes (cant insure a group 10 or above with LV), needs to be around 10 seconds 0-60 and have some potential to mess with the engine to get some more power.

Any idea's would be much appreciated, all I have found that is suitable so far is a Saxo VTR but I need more options before I decide.

Cheers people,
Sean.

I assume you mean the 1.3 Rallye......... too basic.

Need something with some comfort, leccy windows and all that. Not going for another Corsa I dont think, been there done that, also the 1.6 Sport is group 10 cant get insured on it.

Cheers for the help though, any more idea's??

Ah well on Parkers it says the 1.6 Sport is a group 10, I may consider it then, but kinda want something different to a corsa, like I say been there done that.

Anyone got a good link to accurate insurance group info??

I dunno, I would like to stick with a Corsa but like I say, too many around my end. I just want a change of scenery inside the car.

not that quick as standard, but mine certainly aint slow, and is very different

I cannot see what is wrong with my suggestion, fits everything he asked for.

Yeah I see your point mate, yet its a micra. No offence but it aint gonna look good modded, granted it would kinda be unique round my end but its still a micro, I also dont really like them, my mate had one when he first past his test, his mums, it was quick for a 1.3 but still a micra, it aint no skyline
