    Vehicle : Opel Insignia

    Trim : Cosmo

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI

    Year : 2011

    Default My Opel Signum

    Hallo everyone,
    I planned to introduce myself in the international section, but felt so lonely there... so decided to introduce myself by coming in through the front door.
    Arrived some time ago on this forum in my search after information on my new Signum and got overwhelmed by the mass of interesting tips and nice pictures. I had some problems with the registration, but I think it's now time to introduce myself properly.

    Got my Opel Signum since July 1st; yes one with the steering wheel on the right side...
    It is a Signum Cosmo 1,9 cdti. Guess, you could compare it with the Vx Elite, however there are differences between the Vx and Opel equipment (as there is between the Belgian/German/Netherlands...versions). Along with additional packs it came with charcoal leather, TA, CD70, bluetooth, ECC, PDC and much more nice stuff (such as indirect lightning). I could continue because I'm really excited about my Sig, but I guess you all know about the possible features this great car has.
    However, I had a look at the Vx-website, and the differences are sometimes strange: at Opel ALC is allways an option; only the sports-version comes with 17" alloys but the Cosmo has the TA standard (which my kids do like), ESP+ is standard on all models, my CD70 comes with 9 speakers and deadlock is an option since MY 2005...
    Last thing is rather stupid as all my Opels I drove before had this standard. I started with a Kadett D 1.3s, than an Astra f 1.4i 3d, followed bij an Astra 1.4i 4doors. Our second car is a Vectra B 2.0 DTI 16v which I thought was a very nice car... compared to the Astra... and until couple months ago !

    So the Signum is a great leap forwards for me... decision was not easy: dreamed about a BMW (to expensive if you want more than a good engine, 4 wheels and a steering wheel), planned to buy me an Audi (3800 € extra for the common GPS/radio closed the door for me), went in for a Saab ... nice, but wasn't convinced: drove more than 450.000 km with small Opels before without any problem... so if a Saab would suit me than a Vectra (with same platform and engine) would be as good...
    Ordered my Vec with everything on... at the end, dealer says "the Signum would suit you much better" yeah right, and a couple of thousand euro more... he insisted somehow and a saleswoman gave me the key of the demo that was standing there (with 1500 km on the counter)... got it for 3 days ... the only restriction was that I was not allowed to cross the Belgian border. Yet, succeeded in driving 1000 km around in our small country. Loved the car but I convinced myself the Vec would be as nice and that I actually didn't need the big a*s and that 5 seats would be much better than 4 and the enormous space... Got back to the dealer to return the car, hated the fact to drive back in my Astra (without airco). The guy says: "you know, I could sell you this one, it has to leave once" ... got him finally for the same price as the Vec I wanted
    And since that moment... well, the car is getting better everyday!
    Guess that's enough for the moment. Will have a look if I can manage to upload some pictures as I took some in a hurry earlier today.

    Must say that this forum is actually a very good one. Congratulations and I hope it stays as active as I could observe the last weeks. Promise to make an effort to help with it (if you don't mind my English is far from perfect)

    greetings from Belgium

    And here are some pictures. (I know some of you are much better photographers...)
    So it's a Signum Cosmo 1,9 cdti in silver lightning. Alloys are the standard 16" for the Cosmo, tyres are 215/55. Exhaust is hidden (except for the 2.0T and the V6-engines or if one has chosen the Sports-model)
