Think my dealership is taking the Mick, even though it's not very much I guess, it's the principal

Faulty alloy being replaced under warranty

Just wondered what your thoughts or experiences are with Vauxhall replacing faulty alloy under warranty but the customer paying for the new valve when the existing tyre is fitted to replacement wheel?

Windscreen quality

Has anyone noticed this at all? Even when the car has been cleaned, if I look through the windscreen and the sun catches it at a certain way, there's like a dust appearance and it's not inside or outside of the screen! Is it something in the manufacture?

Roof bars

I used front windscreen max button with heart full on, but would Aircon on make any difference? Just surprised how long it took

Currently I'm running 34 psi all round Hi Chris , yes I got over 50mpg on a run to London and back a few days ago , boring though as speed was 60-65 with cruise o...
