    Corsa models ?

    Heres a complete noob thread for you

    I currently own a mk3 astra, pretty basic, but with a new job, have decided i want a new car, I decided on a corsa, preferably black, anything but white and red really.

    With google searches, ebay searches whatever, I keep seeing Corsa B, or Corsa C, could someone fill me in on which is which.

    Aswell as maybe some differences between the different names, "Comfort", "Design", "Club"

    Im looking for something with electric windows, sunroof, what price range should i expect to pay ?

    Thanks in advance.
