Although the Opel Signum, published in 2003, was not a huge success, the windscreen replacement of your Opel Signum may be necessary if you are in possession of this car. Due to an accident, rubble or vandalism, for example, a crack in the windscreen has risen quickly. There is no immediate need to replace the Opel Signum windscreen when it is a single crack. However, it becomes a different story if it is in the direct view of the driver or if it concerns a multiple crack. A brand dealer can do the job quite well, but fortunately it can also be done at a much lower cost. In this article we will tell you how the windscreen replacement of your Opel Signum is possible through us at a much more attractive price. Before explaining this, we will dive into the history of Opel and tell more about the luxury family car Opel Signum.
This factory in an old barn grew astonishingly fast. Adam Opel apparently had a lot of business talent and was able to apply modern production techniques. His sewing machines became a great success. He could soon afford to leave the old cowshed and move into a modern building in the city. Here he also started with the production of bicycles. Since his sons were fanatical cyclists and Adam Opel thought the bicycle market was lucrative, the first Opel bicycle was made in 1886. Adam Opel died in 1895. The company he left to his five sons and widow had grown into a market leader in both sewing machines and bicycles.
A 1911 factory fire forced Opel to modernize its production line. This led to the introduction of the latest production techniques. This allowed Opel to make cars faster than many competitors and keep prices lower. In 1914, Opel became the largest manufacturer of motorized vehicles. When line production was introduced at Opel in 1924, cars could be made even faster. As a result, in 1928 Opel was the country's market leader with a market share of 37.5 percent.
The American General Motors had been planning to conquer the European market for a long time. With the own brands, this was only achieved in a very limited way. Impressed by Opel's production methods and the German company's great successes, General Motors decided in 1929 to buy 80% of Opel's shares. Two years later, the remaining 20 percent followed, and Opel became fully American-owned.
A good example of a car that could be made cheaper thanks to the synergy benefits of General Motors is the luxury family car Opel Signum. The General Motors Epsilon platform was used to make this car. This can be seen as the basis of a car on which different vehicles can be made relatively easily. In addition to the Opel Signum and Vauxhall Signum, the Epsilon platform has been used, among other things, in the following cars:
The Opel Signum resembles the Opel Vectra C in many aspects. This makes the windscreen replacement of an Opel Signum possible with the same car window as an Opel Vectra C. The Opel Signum is in many ways related to the Opel Vectra C. However, the Signum has a longer wheelbase and a more luxurious interior. Instead of a rear seat with three seats of the Opel Vectra, the Opel Signum has two electric seats with a cooled storage box in between. However, because the car looks quite similar to the Vectra, but was a bit more expensive, the Opel Signum was not a great success. The car was therefore only in production for five years, from 2003 to 2008. The Opel Insignia then became the new model in the more expensive segment of Opel.
Replacing your Opel Signum windscreen can cause huge bills at a brand dealer. This is because at first only brand dealers are allowed to sell a car window with a brand logo. Because of this exclusive right to sell these car windows, brand dealers are asking you a lot more for the windscreen replacement of your Opel Signum than is necessary.
At Autoglas Concurrent, you can easily and quickly order after market car windows for your vehicle. This automotive glass comes from exactly the same factory as the car windows with a brand logo and are therefore also of a high quality. Because there is no brand logo on it, non-brand dealers are also allowed to sell these car windows. The competition between them means that the prices to replace the Opel Signum windscreen will be much lower for you. Replacing the car window without insurance therefore does not have to cost you so much.
