    Good, so you are a woman that can drive a proper car, i.e. a manual one? Fantastic!

    Congratulations on your purchase.

    And as I said to Clive, it's great when relatives buy your old cars. That way you can still abuse them...

    Sadly not here... a friend of mine told me a few weeks ago she had her first driving lesson and made a major error, her instructor told her to brake and she smashed the accelerator... how can you mix up two pedals?

    BTW Sophie we need recent pictures of your car! Clive needs to get here NOW! Haha.

    So, it's a previous gen Corsa? I don't know much about it, but think it's a reliable and a very convenient car for everyday use. Congrats!

    Jeez, I leave you guys alone for two minutes and you already can't look after yourselves!

    OK; so it's a 3-Door SXi 1.4i16v Twinport in "Ultra Blue" pearlescent.

    http://www.ultimatecarpage.com/forum...y-s-corsa.html

    The car's been stored in my garage for the last 6 months (although started, moved out onto the drive and warmed-up regularly) and was originally intended for my younger sister to have as her first car. However, my sister's shown a complete lack of interest in driving and Sophie, since getting her new job was in need of a reliable and safe car.

    Here are a few photos from when I took the car out of the garage to warm it up:
