    Default Signum Test Drive

    Well, i've been and done it. Been for a test drive in a 2006 Signum 3.0 V6 CDTi Design today and was i impressed...was i!!! Super douper machine. Whether i actually get it is another matter though, it's dependant on finances etc you know how it is? The salesman took my 2.2SRi for a spin and do you know what, he made my day, said it's an excellent machine. Not often you hear salesmen being complimentary, or perhaps you do? Basically we need to juggle some figures about and hopefully we may have a deal, early days yet. Tell you what, its the first time in all my 37 years of driving that i've ever driven a diesel car of any description. I used to remember 'em back in the 70's and 80's as being right smelly rattly old things, wow how times have moved on! The Signum certainly is errr...different. The seating/dash etc certainly seemed very much like my veccy but power wise, my this is another league fellas! IF i do get it i don't foresee any probs towing my caravan do you? I flippin' hope not!

    it'll tow like a dream....

    modern diesels are nothing like the cars of the 70's or 80's...much much more refined..and more powerful..

    hopefully, you'll crunch some numbers and soon find yourself behind the wheel of it permanently..

    Well as someone who hates being in the stealers with a passion I think the selling line kicked in round about that point. You're right to be cynical. All that matters assuming the car you get is in good nick is the price to change. I'm sure the guys on here will be able to advice if the deal sounds right.
