I like my little Vauxhall Corsa Sport 1.6 16 valve. It handles like a go-kart; but that's because it's been fitted with Bilstein shock absorbers and Eibach gravel springs! I'm sure if it had been left standard the car would handle like a blancmange.
The brakes are more than enough to stop something that now weighs less than a portaloo. The car has Vectra V6 brakes at the front and SAAB brakes at the rear. The standard brakes were fitted to my sons go-kart as that's all they were suitable... (read more)

My girlfriend had one which was dyno'd at 100 bhp and the only things it could beat down the strip were Saxo VTRs (well one of them) and a 1.4 nova! As for handling... the ride is too soft to b able to corner properly so you get a lot of body roll and they aren't much better when lowered! Rear grip is also quite poor when cornering hard and it likes to skip out a bit! However with the right suspension setup they can be good and now in her redtop'd sport she can keep up with my 205 GTi.
So... (read more)

Spoiler is super for the car, colour suits the car, as well as the tiers goes with the car. Otherwise it is a great image it can compete with the internationals competitors. (read more)

I've had my Vauxhall corsa 14 16v for almost six years,its been fantastic just passed its mot again! I've kept the service history up and its only let me down once due to a worn battery, I've kept the car totally standard unlike a lot of people out there! I'm in to minds whether to sell or not as I'm now in a position to update but thinking of sticking with a corsa sxi model however I'm in no rush to move it on. so I would recommend this model.

Recently bought a 1998 Corsa 1.6 16v Sport and I absolutely love the thing. They are quick cars; my mate gave up trying to get past me in his
Saxo VTS and that's saying something. I've fitted a Pipercross induction kit and it now sounds awesome! Am thinking of lowering it either 30mm or 40mm but am unsure if arches will start rubbing on new 17"s? (read more)

Having owned the Vauxhall Corsa Sport for 2 years now i'd have to say it is a very reliable car, never needing anything apart from the usual (tyres, brake pads, etc). It is comfy for its size and the overall quality of build is very good.
Small things like the standard suspension niggle at you a bit, but if you were happy to spend a few quid sorting this out I reckon it'd be well worth it.
Plenty of performace parts available out there for reasonable money and I think it would be a very... (read more)

The Vauxhall Corsa Sport are awesome cars, relitivly easy to modify, even better when you add a Viper induction kit, manifold and a full Rage Exhaust system. Ive just added quad lamps, lexus style rear lights, 17" wolfrace matrix alloys with toyo tyres. wide arch kit, lowered it 50mm on spax suspension, M3 Mirors. Cobra Buckets worth harnesses, momo steering wheel and gear knob and pedals, getting the oce sorted then, like Kenwood 7" screen and PS2, Ive bought a 12" alpine sub and kenwood... (read more)

I run a corsa 1.6 16v sport. It was ok when i got it but it was sloppy round the corners allthough it is really hard to unstick the back end. The car was pritty qick although it couldnt keep up with my mates Nova GSI. I lowered the car 60mm and fitted 17in wheals with improved the handeling no end although the back arches to rub. I also fitted a full stainless steel exust and re-mapped the ecu which i couldnt belive the difference. Overall no a bad motor but imporve the handeling to keep up... (read more)

The 1.4 16valve sport ecotech is an alright first sports hatchback car for the young driver. The car has good torque power, but lacks in top end. They tend to understeer when pushed hard and performance does not really pick up until about 3000rpm. for good performance look to change gear between 3500-4500rpm otherwise i found the car will suffer to pick up speed. Through some bends at a moderate speed (30-50 mph), the car can be pushed and rear grip is very good. To improve handling do go... (read more)
