Re: Oil for 1.6T, did we get to the bottom of it?!

The handbook for my 17 plate clearly says Dexos 2 but the dealer insisted that it should be Dexos 1.2. To clear this up I wrote to Vauxhall who confirmed that we should be using Dexos 1.2.

Re: Central Locking Fault?

Thanks for the suggestions guys but I've tried all of those options. Never used key 2 and personalisation tried it on and off. Have left it for over an hour in testing. 1st time it was overnight.. Not as a test and a bit of a surprise when I found the car unlocked after washing it the night before 😮

Central Locking Fault?

All working as expected with one exception. " Relock remote unlocked doors" This function should relock the car if you unlock the car with the remote but don't open any doors. It's an option in the menus that switched on but doesn't work on my car. Has any one else got the same issue? Thanks in adva...

Re: Astra k 66 reg turbo badge

Yes, a little like the Ecoflex but only the Eco was italic ish. No space between Eco and Turbo

Re: Astra k 66 reg turbo badge

Followed a white K yesterday with a silver "ECOTURBO" badge. Anyone know what engine that would be?

Re: 1.6T gone?

In the 6 months since I ordered mine (I've had it for 3) I still haven't seen another on the road. I figured that with time there would be more but I guess Opel/Vauxhall have other ideas 😉

Re: New owner 2 questions collision alert and hill start

I don't think it works simply on distance. As far as I can tell, it's more about closing distance and change in distance. Like you're accelerating and the car in front is braking! That's when the alarms and red lights start flashing. I've never had the emergency brake assist activate yet. Touch wood 😉

Re: USB Port 2 ?

Any self powered USB hub will work. Just plug it in to the USB in the arm rest. The rear USB sockets are only for charging.

Re: Direction Indicators 3 Flashes

Today I've been doing a bit more testing and it looks like I was the fault :o As pointed out it depends on how fast you flick the lever. A really fast flick results in 3 flashes at any speed, lifting the lever until resistance is felt and releasing as stated in the handbook will result in only a sin...
