Re: Gap between roof and boot

My gap is between 4 and 5mm spread evenly (ST version). Maybe the rear door needs adjusting.
Awefull job they've done with the interior. Couldn't have taken just a step back to see? :D "that's a nive job right there"

Re: Needle jumping

I haven't noticed anything of the sorts. Would it be possible to make a short video of it?

Re: Start/stop again

Recharging takes quite sone time. Wouldn't it be better to charge it yourself, might also save you some cash and time. If necesaary you can book it afterwards. Its quite easy to do and battery chargers are relatively inexpensive if you don't have one. Just a thought...

Re: oil testing...

Oil tests are quite detailed guys, not trying to cause concerns here, but most tests can even tell if some parts of the engine are deteriorating. They will, most certainly, be able to tell if a non dexos oil was topped up - even the amount that was likely poured in. I would not be surprised if they ...

Re: Astra k recall

I had to drive the astra to the local dealer to check for moisture in the display of the Navi900 unit. Haven't heard anyone complain about this here, so it came as a surprise. Initially I thought they are calling for the ECU update on the 1.4T from few months ago, but it would seem it is not applica...

Anyone else noticed that the BiTurbo has lost about 10bhp if you order a new one?

Re: Opinions on 1.6 Bi-Turbo diesel?

I am pretty sure the oil ans LSPI problems for pre 2017 engines are just for the petrol ones. ;) Safe to asume the biturbo diesel is a pretty good option.
Lets see what an actual owner of one has to say.

Re: 1.4 turbo remap

Don't forget, if you are using the S/S-version your Astra will be equiped with the M24/MX1-gearbox ! Max torque for this gearbox: 240 Nm. After remap you will exceed this value....... :roll: Hey mate, just wanted to crosscheck with you - I have the S/S version of the 1.4T 150PS, with an autobox. At...

Re: Tourer Spare Wheel

Just FYI if you go for the full sized spare wheel, you will be no longer able to put the boot cover underneath the boot floor. The wheel is too high up and theres simply no room. On a few ocations I had to remove the cover and just leave it in the garage instead of underneath in the storage area.
