    Default Right chaps, please help

    I , as you know, am a total t%t

    and I change my car more than Daniella Westbrook changes her knickers (and thats saying something!)

    I have been offered more than i paid for my Insignia Elite in PX for this

    http://www.autotrader.co.uk/classifi...ge/1?logcode=p

    Yes it means that my insurance goes up slightly, not much due to me being 29!!! (old man) spend more time drinking tea than anything!

    But at the mo, the Sig 1.8 is giving me 33mpg, how much of a difference should I expect with this?


    Do you think I should go for it?

    cheers peeps

    im getting rid of mines just for better mpg (diesel)

    they are awsome cars, i love mines but need economey, i average 26-27 mpg around town and a bit of dual carriage way, and 30-33 on long journeys.

    only thing is when its mapped its highly recommended u use 98-99 ron petrol, v-power or tecso's momentum as if u dont it will eat spark plugs, since ive had my car from the day i picked it up till now ive used good fuel and not had 1 prob touch wood.

    that looks a minter with low miles too, if u can afford to run it, go for it!!!

    It is gunna be alot more expensive than a 1.8, iv just sold my st220 which wasn't a turbo and I was only getting 20mpg around town driving like a granny, however an st220 wasn't worth it but a vxr would be and as for changing cars I'm 24 and I passed my test 7 years ago and I worked out yesterday iv had 20 cars lol, so don't worry about it
