    Default One Very Happy Signum owner. Modifications subtle and effective!

    Take one Signum..... Elegance 2.0T Manual

    Add Twin oval exhaust with matching skirt £600
    Fit Eibach Springs with Bilstein Shocks (Change rear top arms while at it) £500
    Full service £150
    K+N Filter £35 ish
    BSR Stage 1 £565
    Black mash Grille £50
    DE-Badge rear £275 in paint inc side skirts
    Add colour coded side skirts

    WOW WOW WOW

    It feels like it should allways have been set up like that and looks far better on the road, the power delivery is great and the suspension is so very well balanced on the car. Running on 225/45/17 Dunlop Spart MAXX the car is very agile and both grips and stops very well, my only gripe is that the tyres are noisy on certail road surfaces....

    The pic is low quality im afraid... check the attachment. i will do better if peeps are interested

    Blimey, a number of those mods sounds oh so familiar!! lol

    Take one Signum..... Elegance 2.0T Manual - Elite 2.0T in my case

    Add Twin oval exhaust with matching skirt -
    Yep, did that before I got my Stage 3 exhausts.
    Fit Eibach Springs with Bilstein Shocks (Change rear top arms while at it) - Yep, Irmscher kit which is the same combination.
    BSR Stage 1 -
    Oh yes!, before I got the Stage 3
    Black mash Grille -
    Irmscher grille
    DE-Badge rear -
    Yep, debadged rear (Vx badge only)
    Add colour coded side skirts -
    Yep, changed to the VXR estate ones

    I'm not surprised you're happy! That sounds a very nicely sorted Signum you have now! You may also want to consider the 314mm front brake upgrade from the standard 302mm that you have - makes a big difference.

    Oh, you also want the Irmscher roof spoiler - mandatory on a Signum!

    2nd vote on the roof spoiler.. it finishes of the rear nicely.....

    and deffo do the 314's..with stage 1 you need all the help you can get...that and the lowering makes it the car it SHOULD have been when VX launched it..
