    Default Signum 2.8 V6 or 2.2 Direct

    Hi All,

    I currently have a Sig 3.0 V6 Diesel which i have just sold to a mate.

    I'm going to buy a newer Sig, with less miles and have found a 2.8 V6 elite, 07 plate, 38k on the clock £4995.

    I have also found a 2.2 elite, 07 plate 27k on the clock, £4995.

    Both are stunning looking cars with 18" alloys, factory smoked headlights etc.

    I know they are both a diferent animal re power and stuff and because of the better fuel consumption of the 2.2 and cheaper tax I'm thinking more toward the 2.2.

    However I'm aware of the early direct engine problems and wondered if Vx had got sorted by 2007.

    Thoughts and comments please re the engine and also your choice and why.

    Thank you,

    Wilky.

    2.8t everytime. It's probably not that much worse on fuel either. Plus, with it being the larger engine I'd imagine a better deal could be done.
