Re: New EliteNav 1.6t and 0-60 times

Question is, why have they altered the gear ratios? I thought it was something to do with the GPF?

Re: Best tyres for low road noise

Mine are Y rated for the 18" wheels - 225/40 R18 Y (92).

I'm fairly sure that the 225/45 R17 tyres were W (94) rated?

Re: sports mode

So all in all both good cars, but none perfect, I expect Astra 1.6T to be the best of both worlds. it is the best of both. The 300Nm max torque is available from about 1750rpm so it will quite happily pull from any revs. Quiet and responsive when you want it to be and goes like stink when you're dr...

Re: A bit of a long shot

I just load some movies onto our tablet and I have a grip that holds the tablet by locking it onto the front headrest poles so little 'un can watch films if we're going over any distance.

Re: Sports Seats Discomfort

The SRi seats are better than the normal ones but take a bit of getting right. That said, I don't think they're as comfy as the J, H or G seats in my opinion, lacking dedicated lumbar bolstering/adjustments. The AGR seats with the 4 way lumbar and seat tilt are definitely better though and well wort...

Ah, that'd be an Astra J then I assume? I wouldn't have thought the rear window was used as the aerial for a non-DAB Astra J? Should just be going through the aerial on the roof so unless the rear window is causing interference, I'm not sure.

I forgot to mention we don’t have dab. Not sure if that makes a difference.
I thought all the Astra K models have DAB? What year/model is your car?

Re: Infotainment no android auto

Yes, my Jan 16 SRi Nav was old enough to be missing Android Auto too. There's an official update to add it to the Nav units from your local dealer. Not sure how much they'd charge to do it as mine was done as part of buying the car as my old non-Nav car had it. If you haven't got the car yet, get th...

Re: Leather seats in Elite Nav

Are the Elite Nav seats AGR? They used to be but Vx removed them as part of the MY17 (?) updates. Think you have to pay a fair bit extra to have them if you want them now. Recent post on here somewhere said that MY19 SRi models were going to get an AGR drivers seat? Does seem very stupid to not inc...

Re: Radio issue - Please HELP

If the CD player and more importantly the FM band radio work OK then it's clearly a problem with the rear screen which contains the DAB aerial. I think a replacement is needed as it certainly isn't a problem with the radio if the other sources are OK.
