    2014 Elite for a 2018 Elite

    Forum Key Rings
    Hi All,

    Well after almost 4 enjoyable years with the old Insignia it was time to swap her for a younger model (tried that with the wife too, but she was having non of it) :-)

    Now just collected my 6 month old Grand Sport Elite …

    Its missing a few of the refinements of my old Elite, but a fantastic car to drive. Very happy with my choice.

    I think I'll keep the wife, she's still in great working order

    All you guys that have had the Grand Sport for a while .. Anything I need to keep a look out for in the first year?.. I was not to pleased to see the auto folding mirrors and full mem/electric seat are no longer standard. Seat im not too bothered about but I will really miss the folding mirrors.

    Yeah lamp posts after you've parked and got out because there's a danger you'll walk into them due to looking back admiring your GS



    So far reports of issues are pretty rare. There have been a couple of reports of dead spots and misfires on the 1.5 petrol engine but I'm not sure if that's been down to poor running in from new. Mine hasn't missed a beat and I've had it from new.
