    Default Am I mad?

    Selling the Signum as I dont need anything as big anymore

    Looking at an Astra CDTi 1.9 150 XP instead, but wondering whether to get out of VX altogether given my recent issues

    New Focus looks good but they're about £13k for a late 08 plate, versus the Astra at £9.5k

    Wondering whether to go back to petrol instead as well, as the petrol Astra is £8.5k, I do about 15/20k a year

    Thoughts?

    you need to work out the fuel economy of the diesel v petrol,if you go for a 1.6 the there wont be a big difference,but if you go for a petrol with the same or similar performence the the deisel will be cheaper to run

    No your not mad!

    I bought a 08 plate Astra SRi XP CDTI 150, 6 months ago and I love it!

    I had a 2.2direct Vec before and that was a legend, but the Astra feels nicer to drive and I love the look of the XP kit with the 18" penta's!!

    £9.5K is a very good price, I got mine in July '08 and was 13995!! Granted it has got sat nav, climate and bluetooth, but it scares me to know what its worth now!

    Go for it!

    off topic - sorry! although the RS looks great (well, not in the green!), at 25K I cannot see the point - just get an ST + s/s exhuast + remap & save an absolute packet!

    on topic - is the sig really that much bigger than an Astra/Focus ?

    guess what colour I want

    big difference in price though, the 08 120 (non XP) was £8.5k
    and a 57 plate 150 was less than £8k!
