I have owned my little Vauxhall Tigra Sports Car for a month and to be perfectly honest it is a fantastic little car. If I had the money then I would go right out and buy another new Tigra as I can't rate them highly enough. Sure I am 5'10" and yes the Tigras are low to get into but this is a minor thing. The Tigras are just as economical as any other car of their size and engine providing you don't put your foot down too heavy then it won't run away with you on the old juice! In the first...

This is an updated review of my 1999 1600i Tigra.
I Hillclimb her. Spax Suspension, Janspeed exhaust system, Superchipped, 57i induction kit enhanced with a 12 volt powerfan, fuel boost valve, ecotec valve, chipped air intake sensor and Vented bonnet. I am still amazed by this engine at the last Loton Park meeting she was revving way above the 7500 rpm on the clock.
I am now buying a larger rev counter to find out how high she is revving. See tuning guide on ebay under Vauxhall Tigra. (read more)

I have owned my Tigra 1600i from new a 1999 model.
I have travelled dare I say it 42000 miles without problems.
I have recently taken up hillclimb events in it, Loton Park to be precise.
I have lowered and hardened the suspension .
Put a competition exhaust on it.
Replaced the air filter with a sports type.
Fitted forced air induction with a resister chip on the sensor feed. My next mod is a fuel boost valve.
It just keeps going faster and faster.
What a great car. (read more)

I own my second vauxhall Tigra now and still very happy with it. No technical problems during my 5 years of experience except a broken distributor belt (which was overdue for replacement). Handling of the car is super as long as the car is fitted with good tires; replacing the tires that came from the factory with good Michelins (or any top brand) makes a very big difference!
I also can tell you that the airbag system works very well (I tried it with my first Tigra ;-)
While the standard... (read more)

I had been saving up for a Vauxhall Tigra for a while, and I hadn't bothered to test drive one until I got near my savings budget. Once I got behind the wheel and drove the thing I could not believe what a disappointment it was! I was so surprised that I drove three examples to make sure the first was representative.
I (like many others) had fallen for the showroom appeal of these cars. They are unbelievably pretty, have lots of gadgets (especially the 1.6 litre cars) and look as if they... (read more)
