    I am terribly disaapointed, I must say. I thought you and your Corsa that was true love??? What happened that you decided for divorce?

    EDIT: Is this the one with an R5 engine?

    I thought the same. I used to have a Corsa as well and felt bad for selling it. It was nice seeing somebody else being proud of his Corsa, but now everything has collapsed...

    Yeah the Corsa...
    I was actually looking for a car for my son and bumped unto that Fiat...it started grinding my mind and eventually i gave in.
    Drove the Fiat for 30 km today (no MOT yet) and when getting back in the Corsa i was really thinking:" how did i not do this sooner?"
    That Fiat is just awesome! Interior,exterior and technologically wise.
    FINALLY back to power steering lol.
    Don't know about the engine really
    (BTW that picture i stole from the web...mine is the same color though)

    I am still proud of what i made of it though (bought it with flower stickers on the side) and i'm sure someone else will be proud of driving it in future...
    If i had the place and wouldn't need the money from selling it i would surely keep it...

    Yeah, makes sense! Btw, I was not completely serious before, mostly teasing you . I did have a Corsa though and liked it, but driving wise I think it wasn't very good, I particularly didn't like the electronic gas setting, I would press the pedal and it was taking a second or more till it revved up! I had a Seat 950cc before and it was much more responsive . I am sure you'll very much enjoy your new car, looking very good!

    I never would have thought i would ever drive a Fiat Coupe...like i said it popped up with a random search and thought immediately it was a great looking car...
    The owner (18 years and his first car) bought it for himself and used it as a practice tool for his mechanic studies...
    Result: It has new fluids (brake,oil,coolant) new clutch,new spark plugs,the engine has been mostly refurbished...he then came to the conclusion he'd rather stick to his mopeds,never took the car to the road and the real convincing part was he had it for sale for 1400 euros.
