Shame it brought down the image of his merchandise.... People probably thought "ooo clothes, oh wait, a corsa, those clothes must be poor quality!"

Few dotted around, a lot of people are fans of the oval faced ones on eBay... It's a mixed bag but seems to be a bunch... I've stuck with my.oval faced 6000cd but I put an aux cable in... It doesn't give the freedom of Bluetooth, also steering controls only control volume on aux setting, but you can still play music through the system....

Hi,, i have a 2012 Focus and my mate at work as a 2012 Astra, simelar engine and spec etc,,, he drove my car for half a day while his was in for a service as he had to get to a job,,, he loved his car and was always banging on about how good it was,,, comfy and quick with  a lot of goodies,, how good it was on fuel, the looks and how well its built etc.

 

He now hates his car.

 

BUT, had he not driven the ford he'd have nothing to compare it to, and therefore would still be happy with his 'reasonably priced car'....

 

I'm not defending Vauxhalls, it just depends on how ones budget works...

 

You can buy a newer vauxhall with warranty for a lot less than a ford with warranty....and I guess if you flog it before warranty runs out, or as it runs out then you can sort yourself out with a ford...

 

Also depends on driving style. If you're not one that really cares about cornering because you drive very conservatively and don't demand much from a car, then, again you might find a vauxhall is the way forward....

 

....and if you do demand a lot but also like to end up upside down, then a Corsa is the car for you.

 

 

...but just read you've bought the ford, so it's all a moot point! 

 

 

;) Good decision!

You'll have to trust me that I didn't capture this car as it was mid-corner - it was left (I can't bring myself to use the word "parked") here for at least half an hour. The photo doesn't do it full justice as the rear wheel is precariously balanced on the very edge of the kerb too.

That is actually, beyond a joke.... I think you should be allowed to damage cars like that... I'd happily buy bars for the front of my car if I was legally allowed to smash the **** out of someone parked like that!

I feel sorry for this poor corsa... being driven by such a special tard...

Well that's embarrassing, number plate and all on show hahah...

 

Allllllllllthooooooooooooooooooooough..... The learner driver probably shouldn't have stopped... 

 

If you stop you get nose to tail traffic, if each car slows or tucks in as the emergency vehicle approaches, it can at least 'hop' past each car and into the space etc... As you can see learner driver stops, corsa stops, and about 2-3 other vehicles stop, creating a - what 10-12 metre block of metal work that the ambulance then has to navigate around with oncoming traffic...

 

Hoooooooooooooooooooooowever.... it's a learner driver vs a corsa with a pleb inside... so **** the corsa!
