    Default Am I stoopid?

    Just picked up my Signum 2.2 Design today and so far lovin' it!

    Just a quick question though...

    Upon checking the spec on Parkers, it says I'm gettin 150bhp however, reading my owners manual states I'm gettin 114bhp at 5600...

    It's a petrol 04 2.2 Direct Design

    Am I being really stooooopid??

    What's the official output for the year and model of my car?????

    Vehicle : Signum

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 3.2 V6

    Year : 05

    You are reading the Kw output m8

    155bhp (2.2 direct) equals 115 Kw.

    EDIT: The actual acurate figure for the Signum 2.2 Direct is 152.9 BHP which equals exactly 114.02 Kw

    Don't I just feel like a right muppet!

    Sorry guys! Thanks for the clarification.

    Being not too technically minded (can you tell!)... what does the Kw figure mean?

    Its just a different unit of measure for power.
    Just the same way as you weigh yourself in kg or stone. Or liquid is measured in fl oz or pints or ml.
