    I had an Insignia as a hire car, the Tourer isnt any where near as big as a Vec C estate, or if it is, it doesnt feel like it!

    Don't like the build quality of the pre 11plate ones and the ride is far to hard for a car like this.

    If you get the diesel keep a spare set of boost pipes and egr cooler in the boot

    As above aswell the estate is quite small

    Hence why it cannot be marketed as an Estate (same as the BMW), but as a Tourer
    The floor space is about the same, however the volume is sgnificantly less; great when carrying large flat items, but useless for large bulky items
    It's about time VX released a larger car again, like the Omega

    I am personally avoiding the Insignia, not impressed
    I might have a look at the bi-turbo, it's as near as I can get to the V6 CDTI, but it depends on what price the nearly new price is

    Otherwise this might be my last VX for a while

    The bodyshell may be, but the interior isn't as can be seen when sitting in the rear seats
