    My new (used) ride

    It was time to replace my old Astra with something new, so I bought a 2008 Opel Corsa GSI in 3-door form. The GSI has the same 1.6T as the OPC, but with "only" 150hp compared to the 192hp in OPC trim. I have no photos yet, but he looks exactly like this:

    Wow... sweet ride! I truly wish the Corsa were available here as well.

    So is actually red or fluorescent yellow?

    Magma red like my old Astra.

    I might make myself a present and will rent a black/yellow Corsa OPC this summer, if I have time.

    I always liked the Corsa - I wish Holden had kept it instead of replacing it with the Aveo. Nice car - enjoy it !

    Thanks isszy. I have never driven an Aveo, so I can't compare it. What I can say is, that the Corsa feels more solid compared to my beancounter "José Ignacio López de Arriortúa" Astra G.

    1.6T? Nice choice mate. And yes, add me to the Aveo-has-knobs-on-it pile. A necessary evil in the scheme of things and I hope the new Barina is better. I'm sure Corsa will arrive here in due course (about 9 months and counting. ).
    Evil begets evil Mr. President. Shooting will only make it stronger.
