    Default Fifth Gear: Audi S4 vs Vauxhall Insignia VXR

    Fifth Gear - Season 18. Episode 6. November 12th, 2010.

    Shoot out of the force fed V6, four-wheel-drive, midsize sports saloons.

    Fifth Gear: Audi S4 vs Vauxhall Insignia VXR

    I said it once and I will say it again: Those fang shaped air intakes look absolutely ridiculous. I hate 'em. They make the Insignia look silly.

    The S4 is just wonderful. It's fast and unassuming, that's my kind of car.

    If Tiff says he enjoyed driving the VXR that's high praise already. It didn't need to win against the Audi, not that it ever could anyway.

    VXR insignia just looks ****e from a side profile. its so boring!

    Front and rear look amazing. Can't wait to get one over here.

    Concerning the video. Whack a courtney sport remap on it and I'm sure it'll keep up.

    Hardly a fair comparison then. So £450 for a remap and your easy keeping up with the Audi and saving money

    Vehicle : Vectra and a Signum

    Trim : top of the line in both

    Engine : Z18XE,Z19DTH,Z20NET

    Year : 2006

    Default

    I am not so keen on the looks of the Insignia, I do quite like the tourer (estate) though as looks a little Signum like. Maybe they will facelift the Insignia in a couple of years as they normally seem to do, would be interesting to see what it becomes then..

    Out of the two cars I guess I would have the Audi but i begrudge spending big bucks on depreciating assets. I prefer to always wait a few years to get an older one and then sort out the bugs and make it better.

    Look no fang intakes

    If I won the lotto I would 100% buy an insignia VXR.































    I would then have my own attraction at Trax where I would run it over with a tank
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
