    Default Back with an Insignia!

    Yes I have another Insignia! It's an 11 plate SRi 2.0 CDTi SRi 160 in black with 18" wheels!

    Got it as a hire car until my new company car is built!

    Not sure, the dealer has a build slot for the end of Feb for an S-line A3 Sportback and they are trying to swap the spec to mine, but it might be too late to change.

    So it could be as late as May 2012.

    This Insignia is for sure better than the one I had, three years old build evolution I suspect, but this has had a hard life as a hire car in it's 14000 miles.

    It is going to be hard though as norther the Audi or Insignia are a patch on the CLK.

    God, Ive never actually bought a brand spanker, the Vec was just under a year old when I got her so I've only had to wait a week max, dont think I could do months. Would they not let you keep the Merc?

    The opt out scheme was not really worth doing anymore as I have been swallowing the increased costs in fuel, therefore the company has fixed costs.

    Also, in the past my 'work' car on the opt out scheme has also been my hobby car, which you know of course the cars I have had over the past 9 years.

    Now I have the Astra as a summer car, I want to have a car for work that I don't have to worry about and also don't have to worry about the fuel costs etc.

    The Mrs did suggest I keep the Merc as the summer car, but to be honest if I was going to have the CLK as a summer car, It would not be a 220 diesel. I would have the V8 CLK55 AMG.

    So the plan is to sell the CLK (Although I am in no rush) then run the Astra for a couple more summers, then sell it and buy a CLK55 AMG convertible.

    It is good in some ways as my new MD, who was the UK sales manager has relaxed the scheme for company cars so I can have what ever I like within a £26k budget.

    I looked at the Astra SRi VX-Line and was VERY tempted, but I got the A3 S-Line Black Edition for less money and with way more standard kit. It will also cost me about £40 a month less for the A3 in company car tax as the emmisions are alot lower.

    So a no brainer really. Another point is due to the way I do my job, my mileage may drop off by a bout 5-6000 miles a year.
