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.

Re: 65 and 16 plate

Car came with a 3 year extended warranty and a 3 year RAC breakdown policy so I think I will be taking it to the dealers! Plus, with the Service Club membership, it'll be 25% off parts and labour and 50% off the MOT.

Re: massive red star warning?!

Default is 2 bars. If you switch it off, it gets reset to 2 bars when you next restart the car.

I have mine set to 1 which is close enough to cut down on most problems (bright sunlight and the occasional parked car?) but like I say, it's good to know it works when you need it to!

Re: massive red star warning?!

Yeah, it does occasionally give false positives but I have to say it does work when you need it to!

Re: Removing turbo badge

The turbo badge looked quite nice and subtle on the Astra H (silver badge on the silver strip on the boot) but it's always looked a bit clumsy on the J and K.

I'm fortunate that my 1.6T hasn't got a badge on the back as the first batch didn't get the red badge.

Not a bad spec, certainly a step up from standard SRi.
No sports seats or Sport button?
