Re: Tuning Box for 1.4T 150

Re: Paintwork impossible to maintain

Mine is not too bad I have a few on the bonnet nothing unexpected. My Octavia VRs I had before was covered in them after only a couple of thousand miles from new. I think the paint on the Astra is much better than the Skoda by a long shot but the J I think had more paint layers.

Re: soon to be astra k owner

The perforated leather is on the older elites they changed it to the not so nice leather for later models. Early ones also had the AGR seats as standard which have the electric lumber adjustment and electric height adjust.

Vauxhall cost saving for newer models I’m afraid.

Re: Rear Tyres Severely Stepped

Not noticed this on mine although I have the Turanza tyres from factory which are awful for road noise and in general anyway tbh....

Will have a better check next time I use it.
