Me, Id say stick with the Clio,the calibra, with no service history you dont know whats going to go on it, whereas with your clio youve serviced it, got main things changed, you know where you are with it really.
You will be very disappointed with a non-turbo/V6 Calibra.
Still moderately good looking cars if standard, but they do not handle well at all. 2.0 16v is a real slouch compared to the Valver. Point to point, cross country, a 16v will murder a 2.0 Calibra. Only a V6, turbo or 4x4 would cause any trouble.
Different cars really, but the 16v was the best of its kind back in the day - still shows newer hot hatches where its at - just like the GT Turbo or 205 1.9 GTi do. Calibra can hardly call on that pedigree: doesnt show up an E46 BMW coupe does it? Come to think of it, it didnt show up an E36 either...or an E30...
I would stick with your 16v mate. I am not a fan of vauxalls at all. What the guys have said about the calibra is true, aint no match for your 16v, and looks wise is abit long in the tooth, 16v still looks pumped up and mean, and the no service history bit, NO WAY..Id NEVER buy a car with no s/h...asking for trouble there
