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.

Re: Flex rail system

How much did you pay out of interest? One of the things i expected was little bag hooks in the ST. None to be seen 🙄.

Re: Help needed with choosing a new front grill

I quite like the look of your original grill. The straight slats make it look quite aggresive. Off topic but what engine choices do you have in China?

Re: Feathered edge of nearside front tyre

Too fast on roundabouts. :D Now if I still had my vx220 I would agree wholeheartedly but not in the Astra. It gets parked outside the house rather than up the drive so its not the repeated turn up the drive either. If it was just the pull to left with no (what I call) unusual wear I would probably ...

Re: Winter wheels

Also I didnt bother with TPMS (although mytyres did offer it!) I looked into it, there are (seemingly, but Im sure someone will be along to tell me otherwise!)) no insurance implications. I dont mind having the light for a few months a year.

Re: Winter wheels

Yes thats what I thought, you dont really have a clutch to balance so may be a bit more problematic, certainly this winter I had to take a days holiday as I couldnt get out of the village (hope to avoid that now with the wheels of steel!). If it wasnt for the fact that the bridgestones only have 3k ...

Re: Winter wheels

Just following up on this. I was going to look for some wheels on ebay and buy tyres separately. However mytyres do complete wheel-tyre packages so i opted for these, come fitted and balanced. Saving the faff of ebay , wheels and fitting. Opted for 195 65 15 Continental wintercontact 860, wheels all...
