    Default Wooo Hooo

    Picked the Signum this afternoon after being delayed by both dogs deciding to naff off into to wilderness behind the house and then by the banker taking 45mins to supply a bankers draft. Geez

    The handover of the part/ex ( C5 HDI) went very smoothly, basically they couldn't care less. But the hard work cleaning it and making it presentable will please the eventual buyer ( they will just have to do a wheel balance as I wheeched off the good winter grips and replaced with well worn others)

    I refused to sign the disclaimer until they provided the missing leather folder and navi disks. They appeared 10 mins later (f**k knows what they were up to with that trick)

    The metro blue is a nice colour and the 137ml trip home was great. The car is very Germanic with a great build quality and feel about it. The What Car reviewer needs to remove the ice cubes from his bottom as it is worth far more than the paultry 2 stars they awarded it.

    The gritters were out in force on the way home so it is now a white colour and piccys will appear after the weeked when I get some daylight to clean it.

    First impressions.... super and worth every penny

    The sat nav really gets upset when you deviate from it's chosen route, demanding U turns left, right and centre, but as I knew where I was and where I was going, that didn't matter. I will tweak the settings and see if we can live together

    If its not a BMW or VW they are not interested. They haven't got a good word to say about any of the VX range. Readers reviews say otherwise though.

    Good luck with your new car.

    It may sound biased as my Signum is Metro Blue, but I also think that (when clean) the Metro Blue it is one of the nicest looking - if not the nicest looking - colour to grace itself upon a Signum.

    I don't know if you know or not but if you have a switch (Maestro as it's now known) card or other DEBIT card most dealers will accept this which would save time and money on a bankers draft ... may be of interest for your next car

    It will eventually re-route you when it realises you aren't gonna do what it says I know lots of people aren't too keen on the CX Sat Nav units but personally I think they're great
