    Default My Insignia Review - by Cameron

    •The model you chose (SRi, elite etc)

    Exclusiv 1.8vvt

    •Any Extras

    Plus Pack, ie. 245/45/18 Alloys and front Fogs, also VX reversing sensors.

    •Dealer experience

    I was most fortunate in finding this dealer, Cannot Fault.
    Could not do enough for me. Highly Recommended. 10/10

    •Performance (MPG etc) and Handling

    Performance is very good, I find I can get up most hills as long as I have a decent run at, and have only needed a second attempt only once.
    Most impressed with engine, very quiet indeed, currently returning 33.8mpg
    which is superb for a engine this powerful. Really feel the G force when you put your foot down, therefore I tend not to do it too often to save injury to the wifes neck. Most impressed indeed.
    10/10

    •Comfort and practicality

    One of the most comfortable cars I've driven, also plenty of room in front and the rear. Loads of boot space too.
    A real Tardis, size of a mini, with the space of a double decker bus.
    Very impressed.
    9.5/10

    •Anything else you can think of including marks out of 10 (or give each sub heading a mark out of 10?)

    I love some of the built-in features, the way the dash has its own sound effects when you go round bends is quite impressive. Also the way VX have included 3d effects which are automatically switched on around 3k rpm, not only can you hear the effects, but you can also feel the vibration effects inside the cabin, really clever indeed. 10/10 German quality at its best.

    I also liked the way VX prepared the car on delivery, already putting a few chips on the front, so any I caused did not show up so much, excellent idea. 10/10 It's little touches like this that makes all the difference.

    It was also partly run-in, due to the fact the dealer had gone to the trouble to make sure it was well tested before I received it. Most previous dealers have only tested previous cars for a couple of miles, but this car was tested for 72 miles...not all dealers go to these lengths, most impressive indeed. 10/10

    I also love the way that VX have managed to get that fantastic lighting effect on the bumpers, where sometimes it can look a totally different shade to the car. My sons thought this was really trendy too, (TBH I think they were a bit envious) it must be something secret that VX put in the paint to achieve the effect, as I've not seen this on many other cars. I frequently get admiring glances, it really gives one a real thrill.
    I particularly love this special paint effect. Outstanding!. 10/10

    Also love the way VX have assembled the bumpers to the car, so air can circulate easily between the joints to aid in keeping the car cool. Not many manufacturers do this. 9/10 (knocked a point off as I'm unsure to effectiveness of the idea)

    Also the way VX have designed the drivers seat to automatically move when you go round bends, all little things that help to add to the thrill of driving this car. 10/10

    So in conclusion I can honestly say I've never felt so pleased with a car.
    Well done VX/Opel. Overall Satisfaction. 10/10

    Why should I be advertising it for sale ? I think its brilliant, though I might be pursuaded at some point to let someone else share my joy, but only if pushed.

    Why... are you interested in owning such a superb motor.? I suspose I could be tempted if the price is right. Quality engineering such as this dont come cheap though.
