    Default Signum has gone... (probably not to a better place)

    I'm afraid I've left Vectra/Signum ownership, it was a lot of fun and I'm still going to hang about on the forum and will still come to meets, just in a different guise...

    Not bought another vauxhall either, and not even a european car, I was thinking of changing cars, was considering the V6 2.8T signum but ended up buying one of these...

    Begins with M...



















































    It's a lovely black 1.8 mx5; 2008 with 14000 miles; not as many toys inside as the signum but that's the point, it's stripped out weight saving, but still comfortable. Boot is only 150litres as opposed to the signums over 1000litres with seats down, but we'll just forget about that one!

    Handling is fantastic with the RWD, it just needs some new suspension to stop the body roll, and have already ordered an exhaust from Larini who fabricate exhausts for lamborghini, ferrari, pagani etc

    What is strange is that on my drives about since I've got the MX-5, I've seen more modified signums and vectras than before, and obviously they give me funny looks when I "meep meep" the antique horn and wave.

    Here's the parting shot of the signum as it was PX'd...



    Got to get your moneys worth!

    BTW; all my mods off the signum will be going in the for-sale section soon-ish, including irmscher facelift grille, irmscher numberplate surrounds, blue-lit TC/sport switches, and quite a few other bits and bobs!

    cheers, it loves the bends! been taking it places the signum would plough through understeering.

    not taken it sideways properly, just a few first/second gear turns.

    and managed to do a double-donut after I picked it up

    Alright mate, lay on the side of a sweeping bend with your head hanging over, and I'll happily shave the top off at 80mph!

    ok.. better make it a bend at the bottom of the hill so you can get up to 80mph...

    i have never worked on one of those before but if you get stuck don't be afraid to pop round..
