    A few weeks ago the old dear (52 yr old, going slightly mental and batty) mentions shes been looking at replacing her car (1.2 02 reg corsa with an irmscher exhust) and asks me whats 'cool' .

    So banded round a few things in her price range, basically cheap diesels due to the mileage she does with her job, also I offered her my GTI as Im gonna be flogging it soon so was gonna let her have it cheaply, didnt really give it much thought afterwards.

    Gets a text yesterday 'can you check your email son'....

    I laughed my ass off, until I realised this will in some small way come out of any future inheritence....

    Never been a fan of Vauxhalls really - years ago a mate had a 2 litre Astra GTE and it was a horrid, horrid car.

    But I have to admit, they're on a bit of a stormer at the moment, with this Corsa, and the Astra VXRs. And that V8 Holden they're rebadging, of course.

    Good luck to them. Prise the brand away from the chavs :salute:
