    Default Hello

    Well long time no speak on here but how is every one?

    Well the GOlf has sold today and guess what I am possibly on the look out for a Vectra C or Signum, looking at about £7k max.

    Couple of questions, anything I should look out for, do all Signums come with Sat Nav and the funny centre seat?

    Oh and looking at diesel but will I notice much difference in mpg between diesel and petrol ?

    Baering in mind I do a lot of mileage.

    Thanks everyone

    no, not all siggy's have nav..least not one's i've looked at recently..depends on the spec levels..but all have the 'funny' rear seats..

    If you do mega miles..Diesel all the way..

    7K should see you in to a 2.2DTi..

    Blimey m8, this was the last thing I expected to see !!!
    Sigums, what he ^^^ just said really, sat nav, no m8, not all them, and by all accounts, Vx sat nav is not always the most accurate of things.
    The 2.2 petrol I had was no better (at all) on fuel than my Vec B V6 !!!
    But it had no where near the performance to justify that which is one of the main reasons it went.
    The 2.2 DTI, though old school (in that it is not a common rail engine), is still a great engine and in your budget, and you are always welcome to come and try my bus out if you want to.
    Just be aware that the original factory boost hoses are rather pants, (poor quality) and one of them in particular has a habit of splitting, but Vx have upgraded this part and so far, no problems on the new hose.

    Now thinking of a 3.0 diesel one either Signum or Vectra,

    GG, your telling me matey But decided had enough of the Golf although great fun, just a tad to small for me

    Got to get quite a bit of camping gear in now Jon likes to go camping. Great fun.

    Another question for you all,

    What's the difference in the diesel engines? I have 1.9 cdti, 2.0 dti, 2.2 dti, and 3.0 cdti, now I am thinking the lesser ie 1.9 cdti gives roughly 47mpg and the 3.0 gives roughly 40mpg so on that basis if I can find one I would be worth looking for the V6 diesel one?

    Any advice gladly recieved

    if you can find a V6 CDTi for the money you're talking about keep it to yourself..

    they simply aren't that cheap yet..you're pushing it for a 1.9 as well unfortunatly..

    both the newer diesels are in demand, so the real bargains are the DTi's at the moment..nothing wrong whatsoever with a 2.2 dti...i'd avoid the 2.0 Dti as 2.2's are so much better..

    gives you time to find the best one you can..

    rushed buying always ends up backfiring..
