crikey, all from a 1.6, thats MEGA!

I wonder if they will keep to their promises though, or will that be a VXR instead of a GSi going by current trends...?

You poor deluded Lad ...;) Go and have a lie down in a darkened room at once.... if that doesn't work, report to the M.O. first thing...

A Vauxhall indeed... I had one once ... it was a Tuesday ... a Magnum 2300 .... not that bad actually ..

Mega (AKA Scouse-Mike) I am now 100% certain your case is terminal.

0-60 in a week ... Unlike the Viva GT.

My mate and my brother had a Viva GT ... cracking little car and the first one I had seen with a rubber band to drive the camshaft. Now commonplace but back then in the late 1960s, very rare indeed.

Vauxhall Viva GT ... still look good by modern standards - correction.... 2nd thoughts .. they look far better than a lot of modern stuff.

What a horrible way to waste your money, by wanting a Vauxhall! It's as bad as wanting the new 207, or Polo Gti!
Don't do it mate!
I pescribe as a cure, that you wonder down to your loacl Honda dealer and put a deposit on the new CTR, as thats the only way to cure your illness, and make your feel much better!:lol:

That darn well serves you right ... you didn't listen to me before you bought it .... That's why they need 27 gears!

The new corsa aint bad. I doubt those 200bhp from 1.6 claims though (its either at the flywheel, completely wrong, or never going to make it to production). But yes it is going to be VXR, saw it in autocar.
Would have to get a civic type R though....its looking good.

The 1.6 Turbo is already in the Vauxhall Meriva GSi...
