I know I've said many times that I would never buy another brand new car after the big hit on my vec c, (bought last 4 new) but I must admit I do fancy owning one of the Insignia's. Wife and I went for test drive in one today at Bailey's, in Hereford, and spent quite a bit of time weighing up its pro's/cons. There are some things I'm not keen on like the slightly smaller seats, small back window etc. I also am not so sure about those large blandish door panels which I think may show every slightest mark up. But TBH I've never known any manufacturer make such a dramatic change of design from its current range, as VX have done with this model. Some have said there is less leg room in the rear, but it looks about the same as the vec to me, not that it matters too much as there is only the wife and I anyway, sales guy reckoned it was a fraction smaller than the vec c, but I thought it looked bigger.
It really does feel a much more expensive car than it actually is, those doors and boot really do close with a real solid quiet thud rather than some cheap clangs you get on some cars, overall, car is much queter too, nice also to have all electric adjustments to the seats etc. As you can probably tell I liked it... now its decision time, they can do me the exclusiv 160bhp for just about 13.5k with no px.
What with our bit of savings earning ****** all interest wise, I'm very tempted to go for it, one's a long time dead, so I think I've talked myself into it. Decisions, decisions...LOL Told me if I let him know tomorrow, I can have it for next wednesday, so pondering on it overnight.
