Having owned 3 Signums over the last 4 years, time to move on I am afraid.
Felt it was time for it to go as it has just turned 40k miles, out of warranty later this year, new rear tyres needed (again!!!!!) due to droning, after only 12k miles, drivers side wing mirror wobbling (can't be fixed, new one needed) and wiring harness fault earlier this week resulting in the car stopping in the road (not going into limp home mode) and therefore needing to be recovered to dealers.
Had been thinking about changing it anyhow (like to change every 18 months or so) as I could really do with an estate car for work.
Wanted as many 'toys' on the new car as possible (have 56 plated Elite 1.9 Siggy at moment) but didnt want to spend too much money though. Dismissed Vectra estate and another Siggy due to fancying a change from VX - but will probably come back in 18 months when I can change again to Insignia estate (hopefully some 6 month old ones will have hit the market then).
Decided in the end to go for a Peugeot 407 SW 2.0Hdi Sport (136bhp). Has pretty much everything the Siggy has (except leather), drives and looks OK (not with the refinement of the Siggy) and the deal seemed right. New car is 9 months old (08 plate), 13k miles in silver and has the panoramic roof (which is pretty impressive).
After speaking to Peugeot dealers all over the country eventually went down to Northants yesterday and did the deal - car was £10995 (very keenly priced already for the Sport model) and, after negotiations, cost to swap was £3800 (including transfer of my private reg and the remainder of the 3 month tax on the Pug), therefore I got in the region of £7300 for my Siggy, not bad considering the lowest I had been offered for it had been 5k - although, to be fair, this was a one-off and most had offered me somewhere in the region of £6750.
I will probably be offering the roof bars in the for sale section sometime over the next week - all the other stuff will fit my dads new 57 plated Veccy he has just bought.
