    Default Clean-ish bill of health on the Signum

    Well I had it in the garage on Friday to sort the brakes & the noise. It was the alternator, but the garage had a place down the road that did a same-day recon for only £100. The only other faults they found were a split cv gator and a snapped spring. CV gator is changed, the coil isn't yet. The only place they could find them was Vauxhall at £260/pair! As it's the very bottom coil that's gone it's ok for now, but I forsee some Spax lowering springs in the near future at only £130 for four.

    Still, new rear discs & pads, recon'd alternator and a replace cv gator for £500 means total send is only £3000, which is a deal in my book.

    £260 a pair? Why is this garage claiming they don't get trade prices from Vauxhall Dealers? It'll be less than half that for genuine Vx springs at trade price.

    No idea. Either way I'm not paying that much. Depending on how flush I am over the next couple of weeks it's going to either get just the Spax springs or Spax springs teamed with Bilstein dampers.
