I honestly think you'd be better keeping it for a yr or two mate. Throwing money away otherwise having only had it a few months

Look on the networkq website because there was a few on there with the irmy kit, That will give you an idea on the price of them. also look at cars similar to your own to get an idea of price difference!

I'd say keep it for atleast a year, or a year, and a half, or you'll just be losing money, to be honest. I wanted to trade my old Corsa in, but I waited a year, as I would have lost loads of money, if I traded it in before then.
Ok thanks mate :) and thanks TJ u been alot of help mate

When I traded my C in, I had £7,000 left to pay, and I got £6,500 for mine, so it wasn't that bad.

Which goes to show if you wait a while, the difference'll come down, so you'll end up losing less, rather than more, as you'll have more paid off.

Why do you all of a sudden want a 1.7 cdti? (surprised no-one has asked)
Is it "coz it has more power?" (if you are wanting an sxi, and already have an sxi then the spec is the same) if thats only the reason then...

Also have you thought about the insurance?

I have to be a killjoy and agree with Keith and TJ... keep what you have for another year or more mate, the money you'd lose just now makes it seem a waste. I have a friend who always buys the latest and greatest bits of computer kit whenever he can... and... well I hope you can see what I'm driving at - he burns a lot of cash (I have had my current PC for 3 years and it still does the job).

However if the money is burning a hole in your wallet, PM me and I'll find a home for it :lol: :doublethumbs:

Your choice I guess, I just think that constantly changing cars to have the latest and greatest is.... silly and before anyone cries that the 1.4 is "Gutless"... yeah ok, the diesels are probably torquier and have more get up and go, but with only 1300 miles on the clock your car is hardly "run in" is it? Mine has a bit more and seems to "loosen up" every time I drive it.

If you REALLY want a fast Vauxhall then you should forget about Corsas save up for a Lotus Carlton! :doublethumbs: (I would, but I cant drive a manual transmission due to disability...:censor:)


Not being arsey, just my opinion k ? 8) Wish I could have afforded a 10+ Grand Car at 18... :(
