Re: Tyre wear

I would check out the tyre reviews website. They pull together all the review from adac etc etc. I find it really useful. I tend to favour high grip over wear rate personally.

Re: MPG

Interestingly I used the works pool car last week. Drove about 250 miles. In this case 120hp 1.5 diesel Focus . Trip computer had claimed 54mpg over that distance. When I calculated it by refuel litres and miles I had actually achieved 44mpg! I couldnt believe how much it had overestimated!!

Re: New Astra 1.6T Elite Nav and MPG

Also when comparing with diesel worth noting that diesel is 10p a litre more expensive. What I also dont think helps with the perception of fuel use is the small tank as it seems as if you have to fill up really frequently. If you were sat on the motorway a lot it would be a lot better.

Re: 100000km Anniversary Astra BK

Good stuff. Which engine is that? Also how is the interior holding up? Many rattles (mine has only 7000miles on and There are a few too many little rattles /cabin noises for my liking (more than our 2010 Renault mEgane had after 100k).

Re: 15" Steel wheels - will they fit

If you check the manual 15" fit fine if you have the 1.4. I think not for the 1.6 or the diesel.
I have 15" steel on mine with continental wintercontact fitted. 195 65 15.
Mytyres package. All fitted and balanced.

Surely vauxhall dealers buy in bulk drums rather than the 5l bottles?

Re: 2nd service interim or full

Ive carpet bombed 3 local dealers for a 'best price'.
One came back with £249- so no shift from them. The next said usually 249 but we will do it for 199 and include brake fluid change. Still waiting to hear from the other one.
