    Default signum with sunroof ? - no overhead storage

    in my quest for getting a signum i have found a couple of likely cars

    one of the one's is a design spec with leccy sunroof - i assume that this means no overhead storage. Is this a great loss ?, how usefull are the overhead spaces anyway ?

    hope some of you siggy owners can help with this one

    regards - TB

    i'd prefer the sunroof to be honest - would increase the re-sale price aswell!

    not that i know how beneficial the compartments are as i don't have a signum.

    Default sunroof in signum

    ok - sounds like i can live without the overhead storage and in all honesty i would prefer a sunroof

    car i'm looking at also has 19" snowflakes, xenons, climate, parking sensors + loads of other goodies so it seems a cracker

    many thanks - TB

    PS - i will post some pics up when i get it

    It's personal preference really TB. If you'd rather have the sunroof and lose the overhead storage (which you do) then go for it.

    If you're looking at a facelift, then Vx dropped the overhead storage on the whole range so you wouldn't be losing anything if you got a facelift Signum with a sunroof - only gaining.

    I personally really like the overhead storage and use it for storing all sorts of little odds and sods in - and have no idea why Vx (in their infinite wisdom) dropped it on the facelift. Having had a sunroof on my last two cars (Astra F and G), I wondered if I'd miss having one - not at all, especially with Climate Control.

    All personal preference.

    jeez!!! i didn't know they'd dropped the additional storage from facelift siggy's (they normally run these things by me you see! ) the whole point of the signum is the additional cubby holes and travel assistant.

    vx are going to realise that they are on a downhill spiral, but by then it'll be too late!

    Default signum with sunroof

    must admit I thought it a strange thing to delete the roof storage in the signum as they had always made a point of marketing the car on those features.

    the demonstrator i had for 3-days was a pre-facelift one so that had them - at the time i thought they might appear usefull,but when i thought about what I actually would store in them I couldn't think of much !

    anyway looks like i'm getting one with a sunroof

    many thanks for all the feedback

    regards - TB

    i think you are making the right choice Top Banana, so few of the cars that vauxhall churn out have a sunroof.

    when/if you come to sell the car people will pay the premium i reckon.

    it is perhaps not so useful but a signum without overhead storage spaces is like a pub without beer
    I suppose you can order them from Opel because they are still standard over here. Anyhow I do use them: the big one is fine for a cd/dvd-wallet; the last one is for the kids; the long small ones are just fine for business-card, entrance badges, chewing gum and other small stuf
    (Are there other things Vx deleted in the facelift? The only thing I know is the small thing for pocket money underneath the lightswitch)
