Looks nice Marcus :lol: are they any good? prices seem cheapish now for alot of car.

I was only looking at prices on these last night as don't know what to replace the 1 series with when the time comes, the new replacement 1er looks awful.

I had a a Corsa VXR a few years back which was good except the build quality left alot to be desired. I think the Insignias are built in Germany,

I fell in love with the Insignia when I had it as a rental car, I had the 2.2 diesel. What engine have you gone for? Congrats on an awesome run around!

With all the extras theres nearly £30ks worth of car and the discount you can get from Vauxhall is shocking :) Great car so far...its the SRi CDTi 160 so goes ok...tho with the 20s and SRi suspension the ride is a bit bumpy unless the road is smoother than a babies bum. The only problem so far is the USB connection doesnt seem to work with our iPhone 4s. Im going to try the wifes work 3GS and my old iPod Touch this evening to see if either of them work. Not sure if its a problem with the connection or if the 4 isn't compatible.

Does this one have a sport button? I had an SRI Estate on rental a few months back, pressing the button was adding another cylinder, i just drove with it on all the while quite good fun and very quick, teeth are loose though now.....lol
