    The newer ones are offered with the 2.2d instead of the 3ltr that was only offered on original line up. Lovely looking cars but get the right colour combo as some insides look gastliy with the wood effect trim. The black trim looks much better IMO!

    Yeah bi turbo was the better choice by far. Sport mode should stiffen suspension and make throttle more responsive

    Let's hope it doesn't have dodgy software then. My 160 gets about 40 on average.

    It is manual, I did start to wonder if there is a reason they have stopped manual bi-turbo with the facelift.

    According to the web configurator pages, they have not stopped the manual bi-turbo with the facelift cars.

    It is on available on the SRi/SRi Nav and VX-Line/VX-Line Nav. If you wanted an auto in any of these trims you'd have to take a 163

    On the Elite, the biturbo is only available as an auto.

    First image:







    Only bit from the above image that is strange is the 63.3mph average, anytime I was on a motorway I was cruise control 73mph, every single time.



    For further images should I start a new thread or continue my old "My Insignia" thread which was made for the previous car?



    hope thats not it on idle

    ?

    At first glance, the rev counter in your pic looks to be sitting above 1000rpm. I think that is Kervaigs point. Normal idle is about 800 - 850.

    I think he is forgetting that you have Stop/Start, so the rev counter scale is slightly different from that in a car that does not have it, because of the Auto-Stop marker.
