  • I'm Going to try and build a Signum vxr!

    This may have been done before but what the hey. I have always liked the signum and a vxr surely can't be that hard to make.

    I'm thinking:

    Signum 2.8T V6 Design 250

    Remapped and exhausted

    Vectra's bumpers and as much vxr livery as i can find + fit

    Corsa vxr seats (if they fit)

    So what's your thoughts? Anything else i missed?

                      Think it was called a HSR



                      my VXR history: Arden Corsa, Astra Nurburgring, Corsa Arctic, Evoke VXR8, Black Corsa, Silver Vectra, a long weekend with an Insignia, a chilli burger and now a siggy tourer!

                        I think it would be a good idea.
                        The Signum looks good with the irmisher body kit on so would look good VXR'd up.
                        the 2.8V6 Turbo is a good engine so a remap and exhaust would make it into a VXR to start with.

                        you could make a tigra vxr but they don't have a good performace engine to start with. If it had a 1.6 turbo in then you could turn it into a VXR thats the difference

                          Go for it mate but it would never be a vxr without the IDS2 etc as these are the things that really set VXR's apart from the rest. Well they are for me anyway. But I know it will look very nice as my last signum had a full irmscher kit on it and 19" snowflakes . It was also black

                            P.m.a.

                            Only fools and babies laugh at things unfinished. As for things unstarted, if it feels good, do it ! Then post the pictures and prove 'em wrong, but remember, **********. or get off the pot ' cos someone else is always waiting in the wings. Wanna be first? Go for it. The glass is always half full, not half empty !!

                              I think you should go for it. If done right, I think it would really look the part. If your starting with a 2.8T in the first place, you won't need to do much.

                              VXR Front Bumper
                              VXR Estate Side Skirts
                              Irmscher Rear Top Spoiler
                              VXR 19's or 18's depending on preference
                              and VXR Tailpipes.
                              VXR engine cover
                              VXR front V and honeycomb mesh

                              I think it would look really good. If I wasn't doing the miles I do, I would have built one of these ages ago.

                              I did read somewhere that the Vectra VXR estate exhaust system fits the Signum with only minor modifications required. Not sure how true this is though.

                              This is my old Signum 3.0 V6 CDTi Elite which I fitted a few things to, VXR Skirts, VXR Style Pack One front spoiler and colour coded V, quite obviously it's not a VXR lookalike but it did get a few asking questions.





                              I look forward to seeing the finished result!
