    Default decision time....... do i change the motor??

    guys as you know i've been tinkering with the idea of a larger Turbo on the Signum and over the Past few months i've spent a small fortune on changing how it looks ...... but this week at work they have traded in a Vectra SRI 2.0T on a 57 plate in silver .... now its running 19's (snowflakes)
    and i had a nose around under the bonnet .... its already GOT the larger Mitsubishi turbo fitted and the newer z20nets had the larger flow rate injectors fitted as standard as well so potentially a remapping haven for me ----- the requirement for the Siggy is heavily Reduced as Hamish (the labrdoodle) is now getting too old to get in and out of a car and doesnt like travelling too much any more .......so here's the dilemma do i trade the siggy and get this vectra which is 3.5 years newer and has 80k less miles on the clock ... i love the siggy i love the toys and the refined and quite ride it gives... if i upgrade i get colour sat nav and sports seats and suspension and snowies but loose my creature comforts like celery holders auto wipers electric rear windows (ok so i dont get in the back too much - but Toby still does) electric dimming rear view mirror etc........ any way heres a few piccys for you to look at the new one ..... guys help me make up my mind

    OMG I'm shocked. Thats poor. But you like tinkering and all those things that are missing can be retro fitted, it will give you something to do. From reading your original post it sounds like you have already talked yourself into the Vec. If the price is right......
