Would the C30 1.6 be a good first car?
« il: Dicembre 02, 2019, 11:44:23 am »
I'm looking at getting a first car - I live in the UK where insurance is very expensive however I could get insured on a 2009 C30 R-Design Petrol 1.6L. Would it be a good first car? Is it reliable and easy to work on as I want to maintenance myself. Also if I wanted to tune it in the future, (yes I get that it's an economy car with 100bhp and I should buy a different car after) with a chip tune or similar how much extra power could it handle? I'd only be looking like 30-40 extra as I live off a motorway where acceleration is very important as many have been killed on the roads near me. Is there good aftermarket support? Just for reference it's the B1464S3 engine with the Ford IB5 transmission.

Viene dallo Spammistan! O forse dalla provincia svedese di Troll-hatan.
