    I had a 160 VX Line Insignia on a 5 day trail, it was dropped off with 45mpg and I gave it a very good test drive and it left me with 43.5mpg

    I love the Insignia, but if the Vectra serves you well, then keep hold of it a bit longer. The Insignia's will always be there and will continue to fall in price...

    I will probably go Insignia in a year's time due to work but it will not be a 100% happy experience as I adore the Vectra, I have had such a wonderful 50mpg plus 18 months with mine (both of them then!!) and driven 20K in the past year 100% trouble free pain free and with a smile.

    I respect the Insignia and like the looks but not nearly as much as I love my wee vectra.

    Keep the vec mate..I changed to an Insignia 160cdti sri hatch just over a year ago and regreted it ever since..Mpg`s were awfull 40-42 on a good day..Steering was lifeless and the rear visibility shocking and as for the rear end well all i can say is Fugly Mahoosive..The only good thing about the insignia for me was the interior...I`ve just recently changed back to a vec 150cdti and TBH never took a second glance at the Insignia when i drove the vec from the dealers....
