New Tigra

Post in here if ya owned a CC but moved on

Postby Cotswolds » Mon Feb 21, 2005 10:57 am

I finally got my Tigra, so my old pug is lurking somewhere in Swindon looking for a new owner!

So far have discovered I can now flash people, don't get wet when I open a window and it is much, much quieter!

The Tigra is Opel's (Vauxhall) response to the 206cc.

True 2 seater hard top convertible, with bigger boot.... and a spare wheel!!

I want one of those.

The only thing is, it doesn't come in a 1.6

I have only had my 206cc for 6 months so i will have to wait quite a bit longer to get one.

Don't get me wrong I loooooooooooooove the 206cc

Had my tigra for 3 months now - very happy with it too :D (I'll dig out a few photos in a minute boyracer)

If you go for the 17" alloys you don't get a spare though :(

Well that's not entirely true

I accidentally got the 17" alloys, but made the sales guy write that I would get a windstop and a spare wheel on the form when I arranged the deal (my 2 big asks!). So I have big alloys and a spare wheel (and the two cans of squirty stuff from my cc!)

Oh and for you cc owners: I have leather, heated seats, cruise control, sat nav, mp3 player (standard), full computer and a button to open the boot! Way more buttons than the cc!!

:D

Well there is that, but I can open it from inside the car!
Shame it doesn't have a manual shut override, however still prefer getting wet to having to suffer brakes that squeal like a stuck pig even with Greenstuff pads (I was too mean to buy new discs)

Did I mention that it doesn't rattle because the windows are held in place, which also means they drop a little when you open the doors! So much quieter... :o

Looks nice, and sounds much better appointed, but I still think the CC looks better - which is just as well seeing as the Tigra is not available here.

Couldn't stand it if I wanted something and I couldn't have it !!! :evil:

Ok, it took a little bit longer than a minute ;)

I had a windstop too - thought they came as standard?

The boot is a bit of a pain, especially when someone else goes to close it by slamming it shut!

Cotswolds - are the volume controls for the stereo on the steering wheel really slow on yours? I have to keep my finger on the button for ages for the volume to go up or down?

It looks better with the body coloured roof section, those silver roof sections look hideous :lol:

I saw one the other day for a driving school.

It actually had a big "box" L on the top with the name of the driving school. :rolleyes:

Did you ever?

All a matter of taste! :P :evil:

At least my car is no longer as common as muck!
100's of CC's in Swindon, I see everyone has given up on the spotted section on the grounds that you would have to report around 10 on each journey! :P


Nick- Yes it did think they were a bit slow compared to the Pug.
Do you have sat nav? Taking me ages to work out the settings (as the dealer forgot the book!). Do love the cruise control though!
