    Default It's gone but don't buy it!!

    It's with great sadness and utter disgust at the people that mapped(I'd use that in a very loose way) my beautiful Signum it's now gone

    As a lot of you know the map was so poor that the AFR was running at such a level that 3 people that map cars live have never seen such a bad map. The consequences of this map is that the engine has been BORE WASHING for 8000 miles-this causes petrol to get in the oil hence the crank and all the bottom of the engine has been lubricated with petrol and oil which can only lead to the bottom end seizing up! As to when? It could be a week a month or a year but it will happen.

    For this reason I have only been able to part exchange it as I could never sell it to anyone I know especially people off here as I wouldn't expect anyone to sell me something that is liable to die at any moment but all I have been able to get is a RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR diesel Laguna. It's not half the car my Signum was but I daren't drive it anymore so I may as well have a horse and cart-oh I now do!

    The Signum is now on plate KY53 HBX- it's the only Elite with orange side repeaters, no illuminated sun visors (erm Ditchp!) SRi alloys and of course those beautiful twin exhausts. I would stay well clear of it if you find it or if not take out the biggest and best warranty you can get. It currently runs ok but beware!

    I intend staying with this site as I have made some fantastic friends and been to some brilliant meets. I can always park around the corner if needs be!

    Sorry to hear the news Hugh. Get rummaging around for another Siggy - there is loads about. A mate of mine found a 57 plater with 5 miles on for a shade over £9500. Was only 1.8 Elegance, but its prob better than the Laguna!

    Glad you have got it off your back now Hugh, do you think you will get another Vectra/Signum. Either way I hope you stay on the site, and Yes do come to the meets, they are about the people/members not only their cars.
    Sad what was done to your motor though, when I saw it at the MIJ meet I was impresed with it, sad it had a "nasty" ending.

    Yep, got to be named and shamed. If they're that bad, we need to know.

    Obviously, only hint at the name!

    A real shame you had to do it though.

    Would it be Legal to put their name up on the site or not.
