    Default Decisions, Desicions........!!!!!!!

    Well time has come for me to be able to afford a new car, I will have roughly £7500 to spend including whatever I get for my Siggy Turbo. But I am stuck as to what to do! Been looking for facelift Siggy Turbo's but cant seem to find many with a decent spec (alloys) etc and a decent colour. Also been loking at Vectra Turbo's (sri xp11) but I think the seats are a bit of a let down and I dont really want to spend say £7000 grand on a car and then have to change interior. The other option I have is to keep my Siggy and do it up. I would have about 4.5 -5 grand but obviously I would never get this money back as the car wont ever be worth my initial out lay plus whatever else I spend. I really dont know what to do! Please Help, All comments are welcome.

    Cheers
    H

    If I was to keep the Siggy there are some bits i'd want to get sorted on it - tensioner and pulley, drop links, control arms, ARB's and I think there maybe something slightly adrift with my gearbox (bit crunching and clunky) that lot could set me back £1500 at the outside and then I'd want to lower it on Bilstiens and Eibachs, Alloys, Remap, Irmy spoiler, Splitter, VXR side skirts facelift rear vallence, all colour coded, so I reckon that lot would take me to about £5000. I do love my Siggy but not sure if its worth spending that amount of money on. She's only done 62000 so not mega miles.

    I love my Signum as much as the next man but I would buy something newer and try to keep some of your money - £5K on it will never come back to you.....

    Yeah thats what i'm thinking Rob. I think I'll just have to keep an eye out for a newer one but they seem to be like hens teeth at the moment, I would really like one with 19" Snowies all ready fitted as dont wanna have to fork out for new wheels after buying the car. There are loads of 2.2's, 1.8's and 1.9's with good spec but hardly and turbo's.
