    Default Just bought a Signum

    Hello,

    I recently just bought an 05 signum 1.9 cdti 16v with 25k on the clock after having a 1.9 150 cdti astra sporthatch.

    I needed more space so I had to say goodbye to the astra but the signum seems to be ideal for what I need.

    One thing I was wondering about the Signum is that it is definitely a 16v but it is possibly just 120 bhp. Is the the same principle as the detuned 16v engines that were used in the earlier cars before they changed the 120 to an 8v?

    It also has the cdti badge on the back which confused me as well.

    Not a massive issue for me as I was desperate for more space but hopefully someone can clear it up for me.

    Hope to speak to you soon,

    Iain

    Welcome along bud

    As you look at the engine from the front, where's your oil filler cap, if its towards the top of the engine cover on the right, its a 150, anywhere else its a 120.

    welcome mate, I'm not an owner of a Vec/Signum yet just waiting for my Astra Coupe to sell.

    I thought if the ti was in red then it was a 150bhp

    thanks for the welcomes and the replies about the engine.

    just been out to check it and the oil cap is on the right hand side.

    I am still baffled as when I spoke to my insurance company they said it was a 120. It also states on the paperwork from the garage it's a 120. I don't see why the badge would be the red ti and the cap on the right if it was a 120.

    Who knows? I'm happy with the car regardless. Just might have to get it cheekily remapped

    There's been many an issue with the badging and registering of the 1.9 150's - the lettering on the back is not necessarily correct, although the red Ti being a 150 is in theory correct. As mentioned, even the DVLA can have the incorrect information. The oil filler cap is the only way to be certain...

    they did not de tune the 16v engine in the signums. If its a 16v its a 150
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
