    I put my details down on the insignia website and that I wished to be kept informed about the release. About 2 months down the line, I get an email asking if I wanted a test drive.

    It was a cracking day out & loved it!! The car handles way better than the Vec "C" too!!
    Going out on the pro dive was great and showed you how well the car handles without all the leccy bits turned on too!! awesome motor,, & yes, i would have one,, just have to wait for my numbers, or a few years for 2nd hand one!!

    I did sneak a couple of pics, but only on way back to car park!!





    Sorry bout quality, but the phones gone cr*p!!

    all the previews seem to be very happy with this car, sooooo much better than the vec. What BMW are you comparing it to? M3 saloon? Or what?
