New 1.6T?

A new or revised version of the 1.6T petrol is listed on the Vauxhall site but I can't work out the point of it. 1. Original 1.6T 200ps, 300Nm, 6.6s to 60 and 141g CO2/KM 2. Revised version (Euro 6.2) 200ps, 300Nm, 7.3s to 60 and 151g CO2/KM So, it's significantly slower, dirtier and I can't see the...

Re: On star

Maybe it's just me but as far as I can see we're running GM manufactured cars with a GM concierge service on board. Unless GM are shutting down OnStar in Europe due to the sale to PSA, then those of us with GM cars with all GM parts should still have access to a GM service? I suspect they will shut ...

Re: Advice please - used 2017 1.4T 150

Just make sure it's got the Dexos 1 Gen 2 oil in it and the latest ECU update. That's probably as good as the 1.4T gets so you should be fine.

Re: MY16 and MY17 differences

I think the only 1.4Ts that had the Watt's Link and Acoustic Pack were the MY16 versions, i.e. 65 plate models. hey were sneakily removed as part of the 16.5 model year changes.

The 1.6T models still have both of them, unless anyone know differently?

Re: Product recall

Mine's in today so it'll be interesting to see what improvements there are given the positive review on here!

Re: Wind noise / pressure

I seem to remember someone on here mentioned about dropping the opposite window to reduce the pressure, i.e. if you open the drivers window, slightly open the rear passenger window. It is a ridiculous amount of noise and pressure so I was wondering about wind deflectors too.

Re: Chipped widescreen

Mine was recalibrated when Autoglass replaced my windscreen - it was included in the cost of the replacement (£75)

I can't work out if it's the aerodynamics of the car's bonnet or the glass is worse quality than it used to be but this car's screen does seem to pick up a lot of chips.

Re: 215/50 17s?

Should've just changed your tyres to the CrossClimate+ as the ride is a lot more cushioned with those on the 17" wheels.

Re: I’m probably stupid, but!!!

1.6Turbo 200ps petrol and BiTurbo diesel models should still have the Watt's Link. As shown in the pictures, you should be able to see a bar going across on the rear suspension. Does the no turbo have twin exhaust pipes? Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk 1.6T has twin visible exhaust pipes, BiTu...
