    Thumbs up Defector - Am I welcome?!

    Hi all,

    just joined the forum - hopefully I can get some help/ info from you all.

    Just a big Hello to everyone. I am in the NW Region.

    I have an Astra H 1.9 CDTi 150 & have been a member of the sister forum astrasri.co. I am looking to change my car shortly as I cover high mileage & the astra is getting tiring on long journeys. I am thinking about a well specced used - Signum diesel with Auto.

    Any advice and or ideas?

    Cheers Matt

    P.S - Please dont crucify me for driving an astra! I did have a 2.2 SRi for a while

    No problems with you having an Astra Matt - I had an Astra G before the Signum, and seeing as you're looking to get a Signum then you're definitely more than welcome!!

    As for what diesel, you can get the 1.9CDTi again or the 3.0V6 CDTi. For the 2.0DTi and 2.2DTi you'd be looking at an older model. I think 2004 was the last year they produced this engine in the Signum.

    Thumbs up Model & Specs

    Hi Guys,

    Well I have an idea of what engine -

    I love the 150 CDTi in my Astra & I Have a DTUK box already - so would prefer to stick with that engine. Will the 1.9 have enough grunt being auto?

    With regards to age - It needs to be at max 2yrs or newer. Nothing over 25K.

    Budget = £14 - £15K.

    My Astra is an XP - so would like something similar - hopefully with leather and cruise/ climate etc. Am I being realistic?

    Matt

    The 1.9 auto deffo has enough grunt dude. I had a 1.9 150 auto Vectra C for a while as a courtesy car and my only gripe was the auto box kept changing down two gears (especially with a tuning box fitted). I might be worth you hiring one for a weekend and seeing for yourself.

    You're probably looking at a Signum Design or Elite to get the toys you're after, and if you've got 14k to spend you can definately get a nearly new car as the signum have dropped in price recently.

    BTW: welcome to Vectra-c.com

    Default Thanks AJA

    That sounds like a good idea- hiring a car for wknd - or getting a demo car from vaux. I have never owned a Auto car before. Can you help:

    * Are Autos more expensive to service?
    * Do front tyres wear rapidly due to weight increase?
    * What is the average MPG of a 1.9CDTi Auto?

    Sorry to ask all these questions.

    Matt

    Matt, to give you an idea I paid £15k for a 4 month V6 Elite Estate, So you should be able to get the dogs danglies with that. I went tot he dealer and gave them my spec and said go fetch me one. Took them 3-4 weeks to find what I wanted but more than pleased witht he car and after service
