    Default should i sell my bmw and buy a signum/vectra c?

    ive currently got a bmw 323se saloon (e46) and tbh i love it to bits but i was looking at signums the other day and considered having a change and then now im thinking even more about it as i love the boot size. the other thing ive considered is just getting a high speced vectra c derv just due to the mpg as i do alot of milage at the moment.

    just wondering if any of you have been 3series drivers and swapped over if so what do you like and what do you miss?

    I have had both an e46 328ci a vectra 3.2 and a Signum Design 3.0 cdti

    The BMW out handled them all but the VX were so much more pratcial. They cost about the same to maintain as long as you keep away from main dealers. The signums are built as well as the BMWs but the vectra rattled more.

    I think you would be pleased with a Signum Design, but the BMW will hold it's price much much better.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    I would seriously have a good search on here about problems with the diesel engines on, Manifolds, DPF's, EGR's, DMF's, swirl bars etc etc. Ok you may save money on diesel but you'll be forking it out on repairs IMHO. If you want something with a little bit of grunt and reasonable MPG figures I'd go for the Siggy Design 2.0T. 26-28 mpg round town and anything upto 45 mpg on a long run. Probably the most tunable engine in the range and prob the most relaible.

    yeah been looking at they problems with the dervs wondering if its worth having one or not but for it to be finacially worth me changing cars the derv is the only one that makes a difference as i cant afford to drop mpg with the miles im doing really how ever if i saw a nice turbo id prob be tempted lol.

    I know i'll get in trouble but i'm fed up with seeing virtually every other thread saying there's something wrong with my CDTi and people still saying they are reliable and cost effective, If you find a good one and don't suffer any of the long list of probs with it then fair enough its cost effective but if you dont then you may has well have bought a petrol version and prob still saved some cash. I'm not a derv basher - ive had loads of diesel company cars and they are good for mile munching and as long as you dont have to pay the repair bill.
