Re: Oil Dipstick

I've recently had my car in for a service and it might just be me being paranoid, but i think my oil dipstick looks different to before it went in. I raised this issue with the dealer and they said it is the same one. I'm still not so sure. Could someone tell me what length the oil dipstick should ...

Re: New member, Sports tourer

Welcome aboard. :)

Love mine and no issues apart from auto light sensor that has a mind of it's own and will need software update at first service.

Enjoy.

Re: Got the new Astra

Really puts in to perspective how cars have grown in their segment. The K looks as if it's from the next segment.

The lowest it's ever been is 12.27v after not being used for a month, (usually around 12.6v pre charge), and post charge averages 12.8v. H...
