    Default Hi Folks

    Howdy folks

    new to the forum so thought i'd say hello.

    Currently running a mk3 mondeo zetec s v6. I fancy a change to something with better mpg (currently avg 19.5) but don't want to loose the V6 power/driving style, so Going to be changing to a vectra/signum v6 cdti in september .

    So thought i'd join the forum and get some advice on the model(s) and see what to look for when I go and view them.

    Looking at a face lifted vectra or signum, think i'm prefering the SRi for the vectra and not to fussed with the signum spec as it's pretty good regardless.

    welcome along to the madhouse ...


    why not get the 2.8v6 Turbo petrol Signum ... remapped for more "fun" incredibly cheap to pick up ...a real sleeper

    and i'm getting on average 28-35 mpg ... so still better than your current state of play

    As much as i'd love a v6 turbo petrol, I do a fair bit of driving around town, I just don't think my economy would be that great from past experience with the v6 I have currently maybe the signums a lot better mind as its a newer engine. from what i've heard/read you can get 30 mpg upwards with the diesel in town (don't know if this is realistic mind) and over 40 on a run, those kind of figures appeal. plus 450 a year to tax kind of scares me haha.

    lol indeed .... most of my commuting to and from work is sub 30 mph ...lots of stopping and starting ... i sit around 22mpg for that

    but the loud pedal on a run more than makes up for it

    you just missed out on Penfold101 's v6 diesel fully specced up signum

    its still on here now with a new owner ... no doubt there are plenty more out there

    i hope you find what your looking for
