    True but Nova's never came in 1.1, thay had 1.0 L, 1.2 L, 1.3 SRI and 1.4 SRI and 1.6/2.0 GTE.

    Atomic is right larger wheel size reduces aceleration.

    went to Santapod a few years ago and I did see a nice nova, it was tastefully moded with sensible wheels, redone paintwork and a 2.0 turbo engine, it really did fly.

    99.9 % of modded Novas are utter ****e.

    Oi! That was me! :p

    My favourite Nova quote:

    "95% of Novas are rusty shopping trolleys...The other 5% haven't rusted yet."

    hey if someones happy witha nova than its good enough

    one thing i hate is the people who buy a cheap car & glue stuff to it trying to make it sommat its not

    like me i knwo it is a peugot diesel but i am fitting dsome alloys on it, still a diesel

    now for me i dont liek the way they drive & they have there problems but there are people who love there nova

    each to there own but what annoys me is people who try to mod a car into sommat its not

    The daft thing is, some people will actually think that that is Ferrari just because of the badges.
