    Vehicle : Insignia Tourer

    Trim : Elite NAV

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI

    Year : 2013

    Question Newest Siggy

    Can anyone confirm what are the newest reg Siggies on the road. I have a 56 plate 2.2 petrol which I am well chuffed with except that I am doing 20k miles/year to/from work so is costing me a bomb. Would really like to replace it in the Spring for a 1.9CDTI but obviously want as new as possible. I have seen nothing newer than 2008 57 plates.

    Defo want another one as the flat boot area with seats down is absolutely brill for when I put my fishing gear in!!!

    I'm doing 27k a year and swapped from a 2.2 direct SRI Vec to a 1.9CDTi SRI Vec and best thing I've done, nippier, faster, and filling up once a fortnight!

    Default Signum

    Hmm, I don't want to go back to a Diesel as I love the smooth easy revving 2.2 Direct, it is a very fast car especially under accelaration. I know the Diesel offers more torque in lower gears.

    I prefer the revving all the way to the redline with power all the way than the narrow power band offered by the Diesel unit.

    Agree,.. 2.2 direct ws very smooth,.. but them spanner lights put me off. Nice and crips steering too.

    I dont think fishphone will be disappointed with the diesel tho - less gearchange n faffing about, certainly feels faster than the 2.2 petrol imo too.

    Default Signum 2.2 Direct Elite Auto

    I am not a boy racer but sometimes I get a car next to me at the lights (starting grid) on the outside lane and you can tell he wants to take off. Mostly I ignore the challenge but on the odd occasion...

    I defy most drivers who are up for a quick sprint not to make a mess of changing the gears when up against my 2.2 direct Auto, I simply plant my foot down and whoosh (I always back off when the legal limit is reached!) then allow the driver to catch up and pass me as he breaks the speed the limit!
