    Vehicle : Insignia CDTi SRi NAV 160

    Trim : SRi

    Engine : A20DTH

    Year : 2009

    Mileage : 88000

    Default Its been a busy week working on our cars

    We went and brought our new Signum from Paul_o on the forum on monday and have been busy sorting a few things out on it and my Vectra C.

    Mine- New rear Calipers,Disks and Pads.
    the pads on the drivers side where down to the metal but the passenger side were fine. So I decided to replace both Calipers and they were only £37 exchange at VX and the car has done 141k (I get a big discount as I found out my mum gets a GM pension which means nice discount on parts and new Cars, better than Trade Club!)

    Signum-Rear Upper suspension arms, shocks all round. One of the rears and one of the fronts were a bit soft. Replaced the Drivers Side rear lights as the lens was cracked and the lights had a bit of water/mist in them.

    I still have the thermostat to do on the Signum and two front tyres to sort along with 4 wheel alignment once its all settled down (it already has Eibach springs fitted).

    Things planned for the Signum include but not limited too :

    Full Leather interior

    Front 5mm spacers

    Rear 10mm spacers

    VXR front bumper and fogs (or just Fogs)

    Rear Roof Spoiler

    Dimming Rear View Mirror (just need the harness which might already be there but I have a full roof harness on order from VX)

    Auto Wash Wipe Sensor (wiring already there!)

    Get the DPF and EGR mapped out and put a straight pipe in to replace the DPF

    Find a fridge

    Get some 18's (might put my BK999's on it and get myself some Team Dynamics 1.2's, I think I deserve them after all the work I have done ).

    Can anybody think of anything I might have missed............

    I think we might be able to do a deal mate on a few things there - did you have any particular 18's in mind besides the BKs...? Got some 11 spokes I'm expecting to get rid of soon. Along with a leather interior...

    Also, unless the TA fitting kit is already in the car, or you can rob it from another one, you won't be able to order it from VX any more I believe...
