    Default Rumbly Bum.... Not me.. the CAR!



    Don't know if this has been posted before... I think I DID see something, so don't shoot me... I'm old and forgetful...

    I have had this experience with BOTH Signums that I own/owned...

    The old 150 cdti seemed to rumble a lot from the rear end, as if the bearings were shot. At first I thought this was due to stiff suspension/bushings and **** tyres but I don't know.....

    The 3.0 cdti I have now, has 18's and lowered (by vx) suspension.
    The tyres are low profile jobbies too, and they're extra load (they would have to be with my phat ar$e!) so was initially thinking there, that due to stiff suspension and tyres, it would make more noise.

    Now I'm thinking that there is a lot more noise with this car than before.
    It's only got 14000 on the clock. The noise does seem to get louder with loading too....

    I also thought that it might be because theres all that space at the back for sound to resonate round, and probably sod all insulation??

    Is this a common problem...? If it is, what can I or VX do to stop it, cos it's spoiling an otherwise quiet cruiser!!!!!

    Yeah, I think I will get that looked into. Mind you, they're not that quick at responding to me at Perrys (Barnsley) - they owe me for a tyre, which I haven't gotten compo for.... and they still think I got the OTHER car despite swapping it THERE!!!

    Morons... the lot of em!!!
