    Default Signum Advice for a new boy please.

    Hi, I am new to the Forum - referred here from the Honest John discussion site where I posted the following:


    "I am a great believer in buying a good spec "old model" prob c. 2+ years old when most (no - not all) of the initial depreciation has been taken taken by the previous owner(s).

    I have been considering a Signum automatic with Elite spec. and would appreciate any comments and experiences of this model from others on the Forum.

    The Signum has never had rave reviews and not liked by motoring journalists but to me it appears a very practical motor with a great spec. and good reliability which can be had for reasonable money. For instance this was on ebay but remained unsold - I think:

    cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ih=013&sspagename=STRK%3AME WA%3AIT&viewitem=&item=230098870711&rd=1&rd=1

    Should I avoid the larger engine and go for the 1.9 diesel ? Is there anything that I should look out for ? I am really not concerned with 0-60 figs and have low annual mileage so mpg is no big deal but dont want to throw money away unnecessarily.

    Thanks in advance for any advice"

    Also any advice where to buy a Signum when I go ahead ?

    Thanks and regards.

    welcome
    i was looking at bigbums before i got the vec but that was just because insurance was more than the vec.
    if low mileage or mpg is not a problem then the 3.0 V6 design is a grt car to go for, a derv with a grunt of a V6.
    personally id got for the bigger engine but the 1.9 cdti 150 is a superb engine and can be tuned upto 200hp.

    Sensible man, I got my Signum 3.2 Elite in January a 53 plate version with a few extra toys, I love it to bits, have not been so happy with a car since my first Scorpio many years and cars ago.

    It is comfortable, quick, lots of gizmo's, on the downside I think it is a bit noisey, got a few rattles and road noise problems but with the help of some great knowledge on this site that is being addressed.

    I am by no means mechanical of mind (pro Audio me) so I hope it will be reliable, but I must say that so far all of the silly questions about it I have had, a quick search here or a question posed and the answers come flying in.

    So thumbs up to a Signum and very big thumbs up to Vectra-C.com
    Mr.B
