Re: very loud ticking noise when turning!

I think in some cars that sound needs to be louder going by the amount of drivers I see going along with an indicator flashing yet their driving past turn after turn! lol I often wonder how the hell these people can't tell their indicator is flashing considering in every car I've ever owned you can ...

Re: USB socket repair inside £1.50

In terms of buffering when streaming Internet radio on the app I use you can lower the buffering to just 5 seconds which would keep the Internet connection going pretty much constantly as I always choose to connect to the highest quality stream so I'd say testing that for 30 minutes would use exactl...

Re: USB socket repair inside £1.50

Regarding posts about their phone losing charge when using gps & streaming music, I decided to pop out for around 45 minutes or so last night to test, I was using Google maps navigation and streaming music, my S7 edge had 83% power when I got in the car and had 84% by the time I got back home so it...

Re: Glove box light

Very odd that Vauxhall never bothered to place a light in the glove box, unless they think nobody uses their car at night in the dark! Very first time I used my car at night and went to look for something in there I thought the light was broken, my previous astra g had a glove box light. Sent from m...

Re: sport mode from cold?

Got no idea how you people drive with sports mode enabled all the time as when ever I decide to use it the throttle pedal acts like it's either no power or full power with just a little pressure on the pedal, I mean how are you supposed to drive safely with a throttle pedal acting like that. lol Sen...

Re: Corroded elite alloys

Don't think I want to check mine as my warranty ran out on in January!

Re: Reading the oil level on the dipstick

I usually fill mine just under the bulbus part of the dipstick. I always do a cold read too. That's incorrect according to the manual which states to check it after the engine has been off for between 5 to 10 minutes after the engine has reached normal operating temperature so that's how I always c...

Re: Filling Up

When I brought my 65 plate 1.4T back in 2017 the fuel gauge never showed full even though the pump was clicking away and I couldn't get anymore in, the dealers had it in and I think they did a software update and from that day on the gauge always reads full.
