    Default Replacement barge

    After 4 1/2 years and 80K i have sold my Omega 3ltr MV6. (I still have a facelift 2.5 V6 CDX but its days are numbered)


    So my DAILY runner has gone from this:-







    To this:-

















    For those that haven't guessed its a Signum 3.2 V6 Elite, 03 53 plate one owner from new with 80k on the clock, fully spec'd up with:-

    Black leather
    Twin climate control
    Electric seats, windows, mirrors and sunroof
    Rain sensitive wipers
    HID's
    Front and rear parking sensors
    NCDC 2015 headunit
    Colour sat nav
    OnStar telephone thing
    Blinds to rear windows
    Trip-tronic gear box

    As a daily runner does the job i need, however on the motorway it doesn't feel as 'planted' (for want of a better word) as the Omega did, but i think that is due to the Omega weighing 200 tonnes, also the auto box can be a little 'clunky' at low speeds but it's fine under full load and even with the auto 'box it does spin the front wheels very easily!!

    It feels alot quicker off the mark than the Omega did but at motorway speeds (50-70ish) doesn't feel much quicker, but think most of that is due to the AR35 being a VERY lazy 'box .

    For what i paid for it i dont think you can get newer better or equal spec car anywhere, and they chucked in a cam belt and tensioner change

    Not sure about future mods, but i think 'limo tints' at the back are a must, after driving the MV6 on full Irmscher set up i think i might enjoy the slightly softer ride for a while, maybe eventually chuck on some Irmscher springs
