    Default Need whole load of new kit, but what to buy?

    Hey Guys,

    I posted this in technical but I think this is a more appropriate place

    I bought my second hand signum two weeks ago and just took it in for its 30k service and have had a quote of £1500 for the work that needs doing! Obviously this is from Vaux and I have no intention of having them do the work becuase thats just too much!

    Its a 3.0 cdti with 33k miles on it and it needs:

    new front tyres(£370- lol whatever), disks and pads (£326)
    osr road spring
    nsr shock (leaking)
    osf spring
    nsr control arm bushes worn

    Vaux say that both springs have to come in a pair (£254 x 2pair) as do the bushings (£157) and shocks (£170.61).
    Obviously I am a bit concerned on a 30k car that these have gone (the springs have actually snapped!) but as I bought private I will have to cough up the $$ and in fairness it could have just been a dodgy speed bump!

    Anyway sorry, my question is: What parts should I get? I might as well chuck some decent gear in there while I am getting it done but I am niave as to whats worth doing!
    I drive 100miles a day and not to hard but whats going to make the ride a bit nicer?

    I've read a bit and people seem to like the F1 tyres but I might go for something a little cheaper... apparently it has 245/50/r17's (according to the sheet) on it but I had assumed it would be 215/50 but then I am clueless.. does this mean my speedo is going to be screwey etc?

    also what springs, disks pads etc? Just OEM pads and disks? or will these set me back the quoted £326?

    Hey Guys, sorry its an 03 plate.

    A couple of replies on my other thread saying I should buy and fit my own brakes which I don't have time to do but the prices are a bit more respectable! Will be getting a quote from my local dealer for those!
