    Default Signum 06 Model Year Enhancements

    I have an 06 model year Signum. I know that the front light cluster and spec levels were changed and I have read on this site that the spec levels have generally gone down down on the 06 model year.

    That said, who knows of any mechanical/improvements changes made to the range for the current model year cars?

    Thanks!

    The facelifted models got the chassis/suspension tweaked to give better handling/composure on the road. I know they dropped the overhead storage that the pre-facelift Signum used to have.

    As for the exact spec differences, I'm not entirely sure. Have a look at this thread and you can then compare previous models to the current one.

    Unfortunately from what I've seen the spec in the design has quite a few things missing that my 05 design has, typical Vauxhall as they seem to do this quite a lot.

    If you park the old style Vec / Signum rear to the wind, and it is above say a force 10 gale, and you open the bonnet the hydraulic lifter can fail and the bonnet would close on you so VX have kindly done away with the self opening bonnet and replaced it with a metal pole which should be a lot safer in a hurricane ..




    There do you feel better now that you have something better / more mechanical on your improved version

    .....umm

    Cheers guys - just as I had concluded: not a lot! I noticed on a neighbours Sig the 'red safety' light you see when you open the tailgate is one item removed from the spec too for 06 models!

    But uprated suspension is probably better than the toys as these can be added later, do you still have a space for the storage in the roof ?
