    As it says guys got my hands on this little gem...elegance spec and a 2.2dti engine. She needs a new n/s strut as the spring is gone and the shock is leaking. Back left passenger window doesnt work. Windscreen is badly cracked. And the space saver ended up doing 900 miles and is totally gubbed. Just aswell it was on the back of a transit pick up. 20170524_175621_zpsuvkj497z.jpg 20170524_175610_zpshqwgdxag.jpg 20170524_175558_zpsj4p5elw1.jpg

    am i correct in assuming a strut from a vectra c preface will fit straight in gary. also just discovered the n/s rear electric window doesnt work also checked the fuses for it and they are fine so im assuming the motor has packed up also.

    Looks like it could become a cracking car with a little bit of detailing. I have always liked this grey on the Signum, looks quality!

    Shes in need of a good valet jack and some rust treated but that will get sorted when the new front suspension is on her
