    Default Advice - Facelift signums / 2.8T

    Hi All

    Long time since I've been on here, so straight in with a question...

    I've got an 04 "L DTi signum at the moment, which I've had for a while but since my commute now involves a 6 mile round trip, rather than 1/3 of the m25 each day, I'm looking for a bit more grunt (well, lets face it, after the 2.0DTI, any grunt would be nice...) , and I'm going to visit a 2.8T signum as soon as I get a chance.

    What are your impressions of the 2.8 engine, and I guess the facelift signums in general. One thing I found with the pre-F/L siggie was the road noise wasnt' as quiet as I might have liked - especially at speed - has anything changed in the newer signums?

    Also, I've struggled to find out the threshold for the 230bhp/250bhp uplift- this is a oct 06 car - likely to be 230 or 250?

    Finally, do the newer signums have the connections for the travel assistant? I bought mine for my siggie on ebay, and since the dealer doesn't care either way, if I can take it and keep it for the new one that would be cool, but if the plate with the sockets isn't likely to be in the newer ones, I'll bung it on ebay!

    Cheers all

    No idea about the engine chap mine is a 3.2 pre face lift. I know about the noise 12 square metres of deadening so far and still go one rear wheel arch and two doors to go but it is getting better.
    However would be interested in the travel assistant though save you putting it on e-bay if the price was right etc.
    I do not believe the travel assistant is offered as an extra on the new Signum but someone will no more than me for sure.

    If its not ordered as a factory fit I'm fairly 95% sure the plugs arn't there. The 06 Siggy Design I had for a week didn't have one and didn't have the plugs. They can be retro-fitted though. A search should find it for you!

    TBH My siggy isn't that noisy on the road at speed. 70mph and its dead quiet.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    If it's any use, I've got a facelift estate, so its the same floorpan as the sig - road noise is next to nothing, even on the original NCT-5 tyres.

    Can't help on the 230/250 thing, sorry.

    And the TA definitely can be retro-fitted, a couple on here have done it - have a look in the How-2 forum, i'm sure it's there.
