    Vehicle : Insignia

    Trim : Sri Nav VxLine

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI 160 ps

    Year : 2011

    Default Goodbye Oil-Burner

    Well it's time to say goodbye to my 1.9 CDTI,
    There's actually nowt wrong with it, only done 24k miles, but the more i look at the facelift models with exterior pack on the more i wanted one.
    So i'm joining the petrolheads and opted for the 2.0T in sapphire black (I'v lost count of the amount of folk who have said "you dont want a black one")
    Ive already looked into BSR stage 1 (220bhp is enough for me)

    I have an irmscher grill for a pre-facelift, it's the one with the alu strip, and only 6 months old,whats it worth?

    I also have a tow-bar (which i dont really want to put on the new car)its the non detatchable type with single electrics that connect to the rear fuse box, Whats it worth?

    Good choice, if I went back to petrol, the 2.0T XP would be the one for me.

    Sounds great. Black can look awesome when clean but I'm afraid it's true what they say. Pain to keep clean.

    Great choice. I have a facelift 1.8 in black, and soooo wish I had gone for the 2.0T.
    People are right, cleaning is a pain in the ar$e, but when it's done, it can look stunning...

    Go for a black one, they look great when there clean. They are a bit harder to keep but worth it when all polished up.

    Seems diesel isn't the future after all. Droves of people coming back to the green side.

    Nice choice. Black is my favourite, and I'm not bothered about keeping it clean. Always looks great to me.
