    Thumbs up Just bought an insignia elite

    My vectra gsi was written off a few weeks ago.
    I bought a 52 plate golf v5 didnt like it, so I test drove a 10 plate cdti elite insignia.
    I have got a 7 day full money back guarantee.
    Up to yet I like it, the fancy headlights are brill.
    Still miss the 3.2 v6 growl tho!!!
    The only problem yet is a strange rumble when turning the wheel full left hand lock when reversing?
    Its booked in a the local vauxhall dealer next week.
    Overall pleased so far.

    The Insignia must have cost probably about 5 times what the 52 plate Golf cost - how come you were considering cars of such different prices?

    One word mate PPI.
    Made a claim within 6 weeks £17k paid into my account!
    I considered a vxr insignia but it would have taken all of my PPI and some.
    A mate who is a vauxhall mechanic said if anything goes wrong with a vxr its sell a kidney time.
    The wife said I had to buy a diesel.
    I tried a skoda vrs nice drive but bland inside.

    I'll put some pics on when I have decided too keep it.
    The golf v5 was worse on fuel than my gsi.
    I've got to travel down the m6 to Willenhall over the weekend, see what the mpg is like.
    All the toys are nice, it all depends on how Vauxhall sort the steering noise.
    There is a receipt for two tyres with the paperwork £165 each!!!
    245 wide they are!!

    I keep comparing it to my gsi 3.2 v6.
    Obviously its not as quick but it still pulls well.
    The fuel and tax costs make the drop in performance easier to take.
    It is nice to drive well equipped sat nav dab radio flex ride etc.
    I might buy a quick bike yet zx9r or something similar.
    Got to work on the wife!
