    confused advice on buying a signum??

    hi folks..

    can any 1 give me some pointers in what to look out for when i go buy a Signum 3.0 v6 cdti (06 plate)

    I have read a lot about svc's and clutch issue's?

    are they a common thing to go?

    I here its quite expensive to fix...:S

    Have you got one in mind? What miles are on it?
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    yeh a 06 plate with 42k on clock, only wants £4695 for it tho which i think is pretty cheap comparing to others i have seen with more miles and dearer.

    Look at both, judge them for yourself as there may be a reason the first one is cheap, could be they just can't sell it, have had it for ages and want to sell it on.

    From the ad, they both look good. Make sure the history backs the mileage up.

    The first one seems straight enough - lot better looking as well - what is it about the ad that puts you off? Price sounds about right and it says HPI clear?
