I had an XC 3 door which I bought from my daughter a few years back. She bought hers new and by the time I sold it, it was four years old and had 175,000 k's on it. She bought it in black and as soon as I got it, I replaced the wheels with 17 x 7's. The thing handled like a go-kart and rode like a truck! (but ****, it looked good) They are a terrific little car.
They sure are, this would be the only Barina i would get! The car ur daughter had would have been the Barina City which has the 1.4L engine. The SRi has the 1.8L which is the same as the TS Astra's. Yeah thats all u need wider tyres & stiffer suspension.
