    Default Insignia Test Drive at my house

    I never realised my best mate is friends with the sales manager at my local stealers (ive already been speaking to him about the insignia) While we were out last night i brought him a few strong shandys and convinced him to let me have the insignia off him for a night (as he is getting the demo) So roll on dec/jan

    Agree, I've driven the 160 Diesel auto and didn't like the auto, but that said I'm not keen on autos.

    I've a 160 Diesel Elite NAV manual plus VXR styling and flexride on order which should be delivered end Jan, so lets hope I'm not disappointed!

    The DVD800 doesn't play films but you can play mp3's from DVD and USB, so not all bad. The USB appears to be limited to 2G though.

    The company car tax on the 4x4 is too high unless you earn enough not to care and then you probably would go for something else. Convinced myself that the 160 Diesel is the most sensible choice tax wise.

    If you want to know anything else about the DVD800 send me your email and I'll email you a copy of the manual.

    I thought the 2.8 auto was better than the 2.0T manual when I drove them, didn't rate the ratios on the manual at all when mated to the 2.0T. Would like to try a manual on the 2.8 though.
