Replaced my 2016 model with a 2018.5 and that's the one item I miss getting emails showing my cars infomation on oil life, tyre pressure etc, The system had a built in tracker that my friend found useful for finding his stolen car and was able to stop it from being moved whilst the police traced it.

Re: Engine Problem

Seems they have an issue with pistons melting on the petrol turbo engine's. Under warranty the whole engine is being changed, But three weeks out of warranty a good deed would a replacement Free of charge. I would suggest to get them to service it when needed to maintain a service record.

Re: Intellilux headlight height adjustment

I know using these lights that if going down a straight road, The lights work fine in traffic, But if it's empty and you have a truck coming the other way, They are flashing you and I end up switching to the normal dipped lights.

I use a non vauxhall type made by farad, It works by using the holes, With a dowel inserted rather than a screw, Fine for lo...
