    Default New Signum 3.0 CDTi Help...

    Hi i have traded my Renaultsport Megane 225 in for a 55 plate Signum 3.0 CDTi (subject to viewing ) and need a few questions answered please ...

    1) What is this engine like on fuel . I currently cant get any higher than 27.7mpg with my Meggy and i do a mostly motorway miles but i am worried i may not gain much over the 225 and then she would kill me

    2) What are they like for towing , would i be able to tow a horse box and can a tow bar be fit after by Vauxhall ....

    3) What spec and toys should i expect ,it is an Elite version with full Leather as far as i know in Black ...Is there a dog guard with model ?

    4)What engine mods are available ie chip , Induction and Zorst ...

    Cheers guys look forward to your help being a hopeful newbie to the site ....

    Hi I get more than 27.7 out of my 3.2 V6 petrol on the motorway, so I recon you will get loads more out of a deisel, one of the "oil buners" will be along to give you the correct information. but I can say you will be getting a very impresive car and you should be very pleased with it...

    1) Depends how you drive. 40mpg on a run is achieveable. 35mpg easily.
    2) Very good and yes no problem. I would get Vx to fit their towbar due to others being funny with it.
    3) I had a Vec Estate and the Halfords £25 dog guard fitted as if it was factory. Fits well in me Astra too
    4) Tuning Boxes can be bought and remaps for these. I would recommend DT-UK for a tuning box or the other forum sponsers are on here, and Chipped-UK for a remap are good on the 3litre CDTi. I had my remap on my 1.9 done by Vauxhall Performance Centre though not sure if they do the 3.0 yet....

    Hope that helps.

    P.S. Economy wise I had my old mans Audi A8 3.0 TDi and did 550miles today averaging 36.5mpg. Heavier car and I was tonking along at around 95mph most of the way (All via. my private test track )

    No it is an awesome car with 225 bhp but i tend to drive it like a hooligan at times and also we have a dog and a horse and i thought that the Signum would be able to pull a horsebox and i can also put my dog in the back which i dont do with the Meg as i always use her Astra ...
