Its the time of yeah for me to start considering what car im going to go for next.

Ive drove a few different cars, all of which are considerably better than my 1.2 Corsa!

But Im undecided about what to go for next.

For ages I wanted an Ibiza 1.8T, took one for a test drive and wasnt greatly impressed - besides the fact that the interior was too small for me. Took an Astra SRi Turbo out, was very impressed indeed.

But what else can I go for, ideally im after a turbo, but wouldnt mind getting something like a CTR and possibly sourcing aftermarket turbo / supercharger systems for it.

Alhtough one thing I was thinking of was an old (M/N) plate Scooby is as good a condition as I can find and spend the rest on modding it.

Any opinions on what I could go for?

It'll be a sad day when I get rid of my Corsa beast! But at least ill be able to drive up a hill!!

What's your budget? Why not get a V6 4Motion? my old 4mo was easily quicker off the line than a SRi and never a problem keeping up with them!

Does that mean you only have 2 mates ? I am sure you can rustle up a few more even just from this forum.

Judging by the sort of car/styling you like; this would be an easy decision for me...A black Leon Cupra R. They're quite rare, well built, good value for money, quick, potential to improve performance etc. I seemed to remember the reviews were not great for Astra Turbos..had trouble putting it's power down? I admit I'm not a Vauxhall fan either..Corsa looks good for a small car but Astra styling/image??

I'd defo consider a Leon - very nice cars - also very expensive tho arent they - espcially since they are new cars!
