    Default Thoughts for a future project car...

    Here's my idea:

    A Signum VXR....

    Basically, I'd have a Black Signum Elite facelift 3.0 CDTi Manual, with a few choice mods...

    VXR front seats
    VXR Steering wheel
    VXR Gearstick
    Possibly front bumper and rear if it could be made to fit...?
    Undecided about wheels, had 19's before and wasn't keen on the ride quality, but there are other options...
    Lowered, not sure how far though...

    All hinges on me finding a Signum of the right spec with AFL of course, but would be a one-of-a-kind for certain...


    Or would it be a one-of-a-kind becuase it sounds like a monstrosity....

    Your thoughts ladies and gentlemen please...

    Sounds like a great idea. You chose the correct colour to go with.

    I had a Black Signum elite for a few months a while ago, and it was a geat car - just too thirsty to run (2.2...) And I know love the 1.9 CDTi 150 in my Vectra, so I want to combine them all into one amazing car... Might drop the 3.0 in favour of the 1.9, depends on how fuel prices go....

    Would look great but lose a shedload of money on it.

    Just go and buy an Astra 888 like when you enjoyed driving my one at Triple

    Seriously though unless you keep for a few years, lose money hand over first on that idea. Would look poo hot though.

    Oh absolutely agree on the money thing - thought by the time this all comes around the Signums will be fairly old and so will have lost most of their value anyway... I jsut love the design of the car and the way the rear seats are laid out - it's just so unique...
