 ;D Getting faster every day.

Hottest Ever Corsa

Vauxhall has pulled the wraps off the ultimate version of the Corsa - the long awaited VXR.

The performance flagship of the range is every inch a hot hatchback, with a 0-60mph time of just 6.8 seconds.

The mirrors, front foglamp surrounds and centre-exit exhaust tailpipe all have a triangular theme, while the aggressive front and rear bumpers are unique to this model.

Sweeping side skirts and an angular roof spoiler help accentuate the three-door Corsa's already muscular design, while a mesh front grille, blue-painted brake callipers and optional 18-inch alloys further set off the VXR's performance appearance.

The interior is dominated by the sculpted, shell-backed Recaro sports seats and the race-car style flat-bottomed steering wheel.

Drilled alloy pedals, piano black trim on the facia and unique VXR detailing on the dials and gear lever make sure the Corsa VXR looks as nifty inside as it does on the outside.

Power comes from a compact 1.6-litre turbocharged engine, developing 190bhp and giving the VXR a top speed if 140mph.

The latest Corsa will make its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March, and will be available from Vauxhall dealers from mid-March. Prices will be announced nearer to the launch date.

Not me.. always took a plastic bag to take the messages home with me.  I hate it when people leave all that stuff around.. but then again.. we have cats that climb our fence.. and kill the harmless little green tree frogs and native birds.. i think they should be kept in a cat run. Wish i had another dog to chase them away again..  :)

It takes a certain kind of person to be able to put their hands into a thin plastic bag and try to gently grab hot steaming pooh. 8)  Because no matter how careful you are ,you are always leaving traces of feces on the ground that some little child will stumble on. And we all know how this can even kill.! You don't have to follow a house trained cat around,the frogs and birds will always survive despite the natural hunting instincts of our feline friends.

Not when your dog lives in your own house and garden.. if everyone looked after their dogs the way i picked up after mine.. there wouldn't be a problem.. there will always be problems like that in the world.. it annoys me too when on the beach if i step into some ickies.. yukk.. not nice. >:(

I finally bought myself a new 2020 Honda civic hatchback , which has been a dream of mine that I have been striving for for several years. New cars never break down in the middle of the road and are safe according to tests. I can say that this is a great car for the money and, moreover, with good technical characteristics. I will skate now.

I used to ship a car from the USA. I like small cars too and ordered Honda Civic, which is a pretty sport car more than a regular one. Furthermore, I was using https://clearitusa.com/commercial-customs-clearances/ a custom brokers help, who was dealing with all the documents really fast and without any problems at all.

I'm currently driving Renault Megan and I love it. But I'll bear your info in mind for the future. Thanks!
