    Default Owner + prospective buyer

    Greetings from the dunstable area.
    Joined up with VVOC a little while back n twas mostly about the older model vectras so joined up with the proper OC for my vehicle as suggested by a member here.. not sure what his user name is, i purchased some very nice gunmetal alloys from him on the VVOC.. his name was plasma on there.

    Unfortunatly i cannot say how long ill be sticking around as I currently own a 2.2 SRI vectra 05 model, which im honestly not that impressed with so its up for sale atm.

    Being a previous owner of a Mitsubishi galant vr4 twin-turbo, ive taken a HUGE step down performance wise n im not seeing that much of a change fuel wise.
    Insurance is a big thing for me as my galant cost me about £2700 to insure n the SRI only £1600 but taking the roads i used to take at much higher speeds just makes me sigh whilst driving the SRI trying to put my foot down n not getting much responce

    So ive been hunting for new cars, checked the insurance n this is the list ive come up with so far; Toyota MR2 mk2 N/a (go kart), Fiat Stilo abath (hot hatch) or a signum turbo.

    The signum turbo was a nice suprise that i could afford however checking the autotrader tech info on them, the performance difference seems very minor against the 2.2 sri. Im sure there must be a mistake here, could anybody enlighten me/persuade me that the turbo is more powerful than the specs say and they are worth getting over the 2.2 sri n the other cars on my list?

    Sorry about the long story n although i havent been a member all that long n might be leaving i definetly found this forum to be an interesting read n from what ive seen there is ALOT of owners with very nice cars

    Hi mate, im sure the 2.8 turbo signum is a different animal compared to the 2.2 vectra, plus once its remapped can push out the same power as your vr4 did (Nice car by the way, I almost bought one a few years ago when my father in law bought his legacy gt-b)

    I've never driven a stilo abarth but from what I've heard its not much of a hot hatch, more a Luke warm hatch! Lol.

    ah slight misunderstanding there, didnt even realise there was a 2.8 turbo :P. put it into the insurance though and its taking me back upto the prices of the vr4.
    I can afford to get the 2.0 T, with a remap n some breather mods would this get to decent power?

    Will probably steer clear of the stilo. so go kart or a diamond in the rough?
