    Default End of Signum Ownership coming soon...

    Well the Signum is up for sale, only weeks after the EDS Remap its up for sale. We moved house 3 weeks ago but now have a very steep driveway, I simply can't get the Signum up it. The Signum is just too low and the front overhang is too much. I will rip the front bumper off if I attempt it!
    Its a bit of a pain but the house meant more to us than the car. Now looking to sell the Signum privately and get something with the ground clearence needed to get up the drive way. Its a complete nightmare as the SIgnum meets all our requirements except getting up the damned driveway. For now the car is parked in front of the house but this isn't a long term solution. If anyonw knows someone looking for a well cared for and looked after Signum please let me know. Many thanks. I'll let you know how I get on selling and try and pass-on Vectra-C to the new owner.
    Thanks

    nope, tried everything. I get too close to the road if I go up backwards. It the damn overhang on the bonnet, just too long and too low.

    I would sell the house and keep the Signum Dennis.
    Damm shame after buying the remap too, maybe you need to raise the car, it would be a first on here as everyone lowers.

    Sorry to hear that mate....

    Bloke over here had the same problem with a stock Vectra. Ended up selling it.

    However, What you can do is import you're signum to Aus and i'll purchase it off you

    a real shame Dennis - especially after the remap and the fun you've has with it -

    begs the question what are you thinking of replacing it with ... most seem to have the elongated front unless your thinking of getting a "town car"

    0-Large smile ......every time it's driven

    Its an utter nightmare, 'we' decided that the perfect house was more important than getting my car up the driveway! we said we'd just park mine on the road in front of the house, however on the narrow road it wont be long before it battered and bruised!

    Looking at Lexus RX300 and Subaru Forester! both have the ground clearence. I prefer the Subaru and the Mrs the Lexus. Had thought about Merc ML and BMW X5 but ruled out on cost and build quality.
