    90. at high revs it was even good, but the turbolag was HUUUUUUGE. under 2500 it just doesn't live. aside from that, it's fairly economical
    12 cylinders or walk!

    Yeah, I've read about it, it's a relatively powerful engine, and the lag is quite evident. My Corsa has a lag which goes from 700 to 6500 rpm

    Niiice, a friends parents bought her one of these pretty much identical to yours but with the standard 16s, gorgeous car, another friend has a silver 1.4Auto which again is gorgeous save for the ugly plastic wheel-trims and the slushbox. I love how in the dark the orange dash lights fade up when you unlock the car, really nice touch

    I think I'd never ever buy a small car with an automatic gearbox
    (here in Italy the "tiptronic" is also available, I think for the 1.2. The same over there?)
    You reminded me to take some picture of the interior by night

    She didn't really have a choice, her 'slightly' disabled step-dad can only drive automatics due to an injury so he bought this, he then bought another car and gave the Corsa to her. Not sure exactly, but my neighbor has the old Corsa 1.2 with the Tiptronic so I guess so

    Very nice. it looks better than the previous corsa, although the best corsa for me would be the first generation GSI. A toy
    Life is too short to stay, race!

    Gora Euskadi! Visca Catalunya!

    What cars were you considering besides this and the C1?

    Nice buy, by the way

    He said Punto in one of his first posts.
    Lack of charisma can be fatal.

    Maybe it's not so noticeable in my pics but the car sits already quite low - for a "standard" car.
    Oh, and I need firmer spings: sometimes the car feels a bit flabby...

    It's surely a funny car but for everyday life a toy isn't so comfortable
