CLIO WILLIAMS

Punto GT Turbo

Corsa GSi (prone to rot behind kit & smokie oil seals)

Corsa Sport

R5GTT (headgasket prone & rot)

Saxo VTR - VTS gearbox issues

BMW 318is coupe

Escort or fiesta RS turbo

106 GTi

basicaly im after a cheaper car to insure and run but still nippy and looks nice im drawn to the clio williams as there kind off rare these days and from what i rember off a mates there nippy even the RSi's were nippy just back arches rot off, just looking for cheap and cheer full motering

in my opinion id go or the fiesta for a light fast hot hatch if not deffo a series 1 escort rst, but if your lookin for some fun go for the 318 rwd ftw, dont get a saxo cus you see one every where you go,the corsa the clio an the 106 are preety fast an light hot hatch's aswell but as you said the corsa is prone to rot :thumb:

Escort rs turbo, get a decent 1 to start with, keep it clean and your guaranteed your money back when you sell it

NON of them are cheap to insure TBH and nearly all are not cheap to run.

The one that comes to mind is Nova 1.5 TD. I had 1 it was like ****e of a stick and great fun to drive. What ever you diceided I think sticking with a vauxhall is a good idea.
