Re: Question: 1.4 vs 1.6 petrol

Had a 1.4T 150ps which was nice but the 1.6T is something else! Very rare but worth it if you can find and afford it!

With regards to the brake and clutch failure, I think that is just the diesels?

Re: Astra L thoughts?

Would love to see a 3 door version of the Astra again. Loved the look of my old Astra GTC. Yep, a 3 door would've looked fabulous. Personally, I preferred the Sport Hatch but they say that there's no market for 3 door coupes anymore. Then again, they said the same thing until the Sport Hatch caused...

Re: Ride hight Astra K

Don't think there are any differences unless the Watt's Link makes a difference to the rear? The 1.6T seems to fill it's arches more than the 1.4T but I think it's an illusion as the 1.6 has 18" wheels and the 1.4 had 17" ones.

Re: 1.6 turbo 200hp discontinued?

Perhaps the Astra K 1.6 petrols will become more desirable now the've gone out of production. Already are more desirable as there aren't that many used ones on the market. Of course that engine was fitted to the GTC (now discontinued) and the Cascada (now discontinued) - is it still available in th...

Re: Astra 2015 Elite Nav - Possible Android Auto Update?

Any dealer should be able to do it. I had mine done as part of the agreement to have the car. Not quite sure why it took so long for the Nav versions to get AA when the non--Nav had it from day 1.

Anyway, Jan 2016 1.6T and the update was done in a few hours.

Re: massive red star warning?!

Likely a cross over period between the years. But for definite my old 65 plate 2015 model was always 3 bars on engine start and I used to switch it off fully every drive. But each of my 66 plate versions and a 17 plate remember the last setting but can not be switched off totally. Hi My 65 plate (d...

Re: Sport mode???

What happens if you turn it off?

Is that a standard option in the settings somewhere?

Re: sri sport button - is it another map?

I think it does adjust the steering - it's just the K steering is too light to really notice it.

Was best on the MK 5 - most noticeably on the 1.9CDTi 150ps . Didn't really make that much difference to the 1,6T which was responsive from any revs anyway!

Re: massive red star warning?!

Hmm, it SHOULD remember what setting it was last on (apart from OFF which resets to the default). Try setting it to 1 bar and then check next time you get into the car.
