nice looking car , how come this 1.7 is 125 bhp but the astra 1,7 is only 100? does this mean the corsa 1.7 is tuneable to a higher bhp than the astra or can this only still be upped to just below 140bhp? even so its a smaller lighter car so will be quicker , half leather too and 5 stud hubs so can upgrade to the vxr 19" ;)

What sort of problems mate? It could be funked that is why its so cheap?
All sorts of problems, ECUs replaced, turbos replaced, broken intercooler pipes, fuel rails goosed, a random problem that made it rev to 2K and hold it there when it was cold. Then the SRi had ECUs a turbo, wheel bearings, rear breaks finally a TC/ESP fault that was the end of it.
