    Unhappy Sad times .... The Signum has gone

    As some of you may know I've not been as active in the past year owing to reasons I won't bore you with ...


    In the past 12 months I amassed a total of 3200 miles driving and money has been tighter so I've had to tighten my belt and be sensible in relation to running costs on fuel /road tax/ insurance and looking at future potential wear and tear issues and weighing up the pros and cons I have realised that I'm not getting the maximum potential from the signum and not giving it the drive that is so desperately needs and wants


    heres my bc2 scary figures


    10622.3 miles
    @ 29 mph average
    thats 481.2 gallons of Ron99
    @ 22.1 miles to the gallon


    clearly I am/have not doing the car or the forum justice in the past 12 months and as such with a deep and heavy heart I tendered my resignation from Admin over a month ago...


    i have made some truly fantastic friends on here and as such I still intend to be an active participant as a regular member and some day I hope to replace the signum with a suitably fast and furious sleeper but for now I'm in a 2 door diesel to save the pennies with £10 a year road fund licence


    I've just completed 150 miles in my new motor which only has a 45 litre fuel tank and I've still got nearly 3/4 of a tank .... I thought the needle was broken because it wasn't moving as quickly




    im going to miss my signum and the smile it gave me every time I drove her...


    so again thanks to all for your support and help since I joined and to the friends that I have made I say keep in touch and I hope to make it to a meet this year as a visitor if I'm allowed

    It's a shame you had to get rid of the Signum Dez but ateod needs must. Don't become a stranger and you are always welcome....siggy or no siggy.

    It's no consolation but think of all the money your saving
