    Leaving VX

    Forum Key Rings
    Folks, I wanted to thank you all (particularly Buttons for my headlight issues) For the assistance and help over the last year and a half.

    I have moved on, not necessarily up, to a BMW. I tend to change motors every 18-24months and this one came up as a cracking deal. Gone from white to black/blueish.

    Maybe in about 2 years I'll be back but mean time keep up the forum, it's a great asset to anyone with an Insignia.

    Thanks guys. I'll linger on in the background.

    It's odd to note how many angry drivers a BMW attracts. I've had more 'hand signals' in the few days than in the previous year and a half!!

    Yes, she's a 520d. Just the baby beemer.

    How do you find it out of curiosity? Ride wise etc?

    So far it's grand. It's the MSport setup without the adaptive dampers. To be fair I always have liked a stiff suspension setup, the insignia didn't disappoint in that respect either. The beemer is a really nice compromise between staying flat in corners and not taking teeth out on a pothole but I've only had it a few days so time will tell me more.

    It's the 275/40 r18 run flats on the rear that concern me slightly, might need a mortgage to replace those....

    That's because of the non fitment of indicators

    But looking at your picture, I see they're fitted.

    Must Be no stalk on the inside
