    Question Signum 2.8 v6 mileage???

    Hey Everyone,

    This is my first post so dont shoot me down straight off

    i have decided to get a 2.8 signum and was wondering what mileage would you buy up to???

    obviously the lower the better but because black 2.8 elites are far and few between that the ones i can find have between 40 and 70k on the clock.

    so what would be the maximum mileage that you would buy one at???

    any advice would be great.

    Thanks in advance,
    Rudd

    These engines are pretty much bullet proof mate so as long as they are regularly serviced you'll have no problems with any mileage. Have you looked in the for sale section there is a stunning manual 2.8 in metro blue that has just been serviced and has 13 months MOT and 6 months tax.

    I just bought a 2.8 myself a few weeks ago and it has 83,000 on the clock! It's still a great engine even with that kind of mileage (seems to be mainly motorway miles though)

    If you are looking for a 2.8 just be aware that if it's newer than april 2006 then you will have to pay £460/yr in tax (like me) but if you can get an earlier one, I believe it's about £265/yr

    I'm sure I saw a black 2.8 elite recently, can't remember where though.

    The reason I chose this model is it happened to pop up while I was looking for a 1.9CDTI and was only a mile or so away so I went to see it and after a quick drive in it, decided - to hell with fuel econemy, this is a great engine/gearbox combo, I'll have it. I don't do nearly as much mileage as I use to so I don't relly need the diesel anymore.

    Also, all elites have a 6sp Auto box so if you want a manual, I think you have to get a design, but as i said, the auto box is actually really smooth.

    Best of luck with your hunt.
