Re: Psa merger and its effects?

Yes, this 1.0T engine is absolutely amazing. Been driving it in Germany roads, around 170kph, it was feeling OK. Could probably go faster to 180-190, but thought I'd spare the engine and my wife's nerves.

Re: Keys

Yes both keys also have the normal key inside the fob, but I think this is only as a backup for opening the doors don't think it's possible to start the car with it. Although I could be wrong. The normal key is indeed, for opening the door. As for the startup, you will need to place your key in the...

Re: Cosmic Gray Opel from Finland (Astra K ST 1.0ECT 2017)

It might be a bit hard to find now, but in autumn there was a topic where someone pointed out that if you put some extra sound isolation in the boot, the noise gets reduced quite substantially. I think it was in "how-to" section.

Re: Cosmic Gray Opel from Finland (Astra K ST 1.0ECT 2017)

Oooo o :o . That not close to the Opel's figure which is 5.4l/100km on average and 4.6l/100km on highway :x Or is the consumption high due to the winter conditions? Do u have any summer experience?

Service schedules for K

Hi,

I've read the owner's manual, but couldn't find the service schedule for the following items:
- Brake fluid
- Engine cooling liquid
- Timing belt
- Transmission oil

Does anyone have figures for those? Quick googling didn't help much :)

Re: Which petrol should I buy?

In Finland we have 95E10 with 10% of biofuel additives (ethanol?). I don't know how much engine may suffer from it long term, but so far no issues.

Re: Eleccy handbrake is this normal?

This is normal indeed. Once you touch the throttle, it's an indication for the handbrake that you're about to set off.

Re: 1.0 Astra fuel consumption

My Astra is just over 5K km. Opel app says the lifetime consumption is 51mpg. This is of course bull*it :) The figures I get more-or-less consistently is 47mpg. However I do have slightly heavy foot. I usually change gear at about 3K RPM. My wife, in comparison averages 49. We do 1/3 city, 2/3 highw...
