    Default Signum one year on.

    Next Friday, I will have owned the Signum for a year. Yes it has flown by! The past 3 cars I have had :-

    Vectra SRi CDTi 150 06
    Signum Elite 3.0 CDTi V6 56
    Astra SRi CDTi 150 57

    Were all kept for about a year before swapping. But I have decided to keep the current Signum for another year.

    I was at Marshall Vauxhall today looking at new cars whilst My Freelander 2 had it's first MOT and was sitting in the new Astra SE.

    I have to say, I thought it was a really nice car, better than the Insignia in many ways. But to get a new Astra/Insingia with the spec I have on mine would be very expensive.

    Besides, I still really enjoy the Signum as it is something different. So I'll keep it and see if the Astra GSi CDTTi 190 5dr comes out as planned at the end of 2010! Then that will be my replacement!

    The brake pedal is not quite as hard as when I had the VXR brakes, but other than that I have not really noticed anything different, which proves how much of an overkill they were for my requirements.

    Better, it's still hard, but when you go up to 19's you don't really notice a difference, but when you drop back down, you really notice.

    It is a really nice ride now, sporty but without the harshness.

    I would say the 18's on 225 45's is about the same as 215 50 17's.
