    Default new car questions

    hi all - newbie here so still working my way around

    i'm looking to get a signum CDTi 150 and have a couple of questions that maybe some of you long termers can answer

    1 - been looking at some with the 19" wheel option, whats the "real-world" ride quality like ( the exclusiv that I had as a 3-day demonstrator had 18's and the ride quality was OK, but worried about the affect 19's will have on the ride, as this car will be doing 30k miles/year

    2 - what sort of damage to the mpg figure do 19's give - from my previous cars (VW Golfs) I know that going that big can give quite an effect on fuel consumption.

    3 - what's the cost of servicing like, as the fact that i'm doing 30k/year means service costs are important

    many thanks for your answers

    regards - TB

    Ride is a little on the hard side but i have a Vec SRi so the suspension is harder in those anyway. You will still get over 40mpg in mixed driving and they need servicing every 30k or so. The car will tell you when depending on how it has been set up from the factory.

    thanks for the quick reply - sounds good on the ride quality front then, most of my milage is motorway, but didn't want to be worrying when going the cross country routes

    as long as the mpg stays mid 40's with 19" wheels i'll be happy

    just got to find the right car now ! - change jobs in around 3 weeks time, so I'd better pull my finger out !

    thanks - TB
