Welcome! I waited over 2 months for mine! She was a factory order, 1.4T in shiny rock. Had her a month now and loving her more each day!

Mines only a 1.2, but I don't want anything to powerful, a 1.2 will do the job nicely. How's your MPG, I am upgrading from a 1.2 Corsa C, I can do around 50-60 mpg for £15 and does the exhaust sound kind of sporty? Lol

My exhaust has a little grunt to it now, but I've only gone just over 500 miles. I am only on my second full tank so mpg is improving all the time. I only got 35.9mpg from the first tank, but the second is looking better already!

That's really good mpg, did you get any carpets with your car? If not, which one do you recommend, need to get some as Vauxhall doesn't provide any these days :(

The dealer put a set of mats in. I asked when I ordered the car and he agreed, but when I went to collect her he hadn't put any in so I reminded him. He disappeared and came back with a brand new set still in polythene! They even have Corsa embroidered on them! Got £25 worth of fuel too. :D

Lucky! I don't think my guy is so willing to throw some mats in but is more willing to give me a tank of petrol for free. Also how are the stock speakers and sound system? I like my music, I know it's loud but is it clear etc?

Did you choose the 1.2 for insurance reasons?

Yeah, it's ok for me but then I am not into sound systems and subwoofers, etc. I have learnt that the quality of the MP3 shows in the quality of sound. I had to re-rip some of my music as it was too quiet when played via the USB port.

The salesman recommended getting a capital corsa due to the extras....there was only 2 left and both 1.2 and I just chose one. Also I am 18 so it was a safer bet, but I would of liked the 1.0L turbo ah well :)

That's good mpg, is the reversing camera good quality? I am worried I won't use it since I never required one :p

yes a very good picture but I don't really rely on it, but i suppose it would stop running over the odd dog :lol:
