    Default My pre-facelift Signum 2.0T

    Hey everybody.
    I bought my Signum 2.0T Design back in October 2012 following an accident in my coupe which ended up a Cat C write off. I later sold this and it was repaired by its now new owner and enjoying a second chance at life.
    We also own a 2007 Astra VXR so needed a more sensible 5 door car. Sensible though hasn't really hung around for long!

    When I bought him he looked like this...





    Since that day it become the new project.....
    My private plate was transferred, we fitted coilovers, tinted the rear lights, fitted plate holders, pressed number plates, front and rear Heko's and on Friday just gone I finally fitted his new shoes......
    18inch Irmscher Evo Star alloys that I have had repainted in Suzuki Met Violet.
    Admittedly the car is a bit like marmite and my choice of wheel colour has been somewhat brave.....but surprisingly I've only had 1 person tell me they really don't like it...most have passed nice comments, stopped to take pics and I've had somebody ask to buy the car!
    I quite like the haters though......







    feel free to be honest with your thoughts, I won't be offended. Future plans include smarting up the engine bay, remap etc.

    Spacers are definitely on my agenda too so good call. Just trying to work out what's the best size to put on so that I won't put a strain on it. Currently it's on fks for a veccy estate and its not a bad ride at all considering its also sat on 35 profile tyres and running a bit of stretch on 215s. The average 225/40/18s on our vxr rubbed on the Signum. It's running about 3.5 degree camber on the front on a proper set up too. It's brilliant on fast windy roads now compared to before on standard sports suspension.
