    Default Hi there, soon to be Signum owner (I hope)

    Name's Andy from Chatham, Kent and since someone drove into my 200sx ive been toying with what to get next.

    Was thinking Laguna 1.9 Dci Initiale but after driving one im not too sure.

    So im now thinking Vectra or more preferably Signum.

    Was hoping to spend as close to £2000 as possible, but could stretch slightly.

    Has to be diesel and realtively low mileage and decent spec.

    So far ive found - http://www.autotrader.co.uk/classifi...01107379830011

    and

    http://www.autotrader.co.uk/classifi...01107379953801

    Do they sound ok or am i being too optimistic for my money?

    Thanks,

    Andy

    both sound quite reasonible ...shame theres no piccie of the second one .
    ive bought privately before so dont see any issues with the first one .
    Just give them a good check over, but as the first one has no Tax a test drive looks a bit iffy..

    The second one has no tax but is a trader so im sure trade plates should be there.

    The first is in Hull which is a 4 hour drive whilst the second is in london so an hour.

    Anything i should really look out for with signums?

    Anywhere else you can recommend to look other than autotrader/pistonheads/ebay as a lot are very high mileage.

    Thanks,

    Andy

    I bought one, it's a 2004 Design with 97k on the clock but sadly no sat nav or auto lights or folding mirrors but it was £2300.

    1. Suspension problems were present at the time which a garage has said is the inner tie rod ends and anti roll bar d bushes.

    Are these easy enough to fit?
    -----------------------------------
    2. The boot will not open on any of the buttons in the car or the key, but opens fine from the outside.

    Any ideas?
    -----------------------------------
    3. Cruise control is being a pain and comes on but then decides to randomly turn itself off and sometimes involves me pressing the start or resume button on the indicator stalk but im not sure how im meant to increase the speed as by pressing the buttons again it turns straight off.

    Any ideas?
    -----------------------------------
    4. I want the sat nav which as far as im aware is the CD70 navi, is it simple to get the sat nav screen and the cd70 navi and swap them over?

    Can i add iPhone 4 functionality or Bluetooth whilst this is happening?
    -----------------------------------
    Thanks,

    Andy

    I bought it privately and all seemed fine at the time but after the drive home it wasn't.

    Any ideas on the other parts?
