Re: Insignia B rear armrest

I'm not surprised you did. Did you order it with the leather cover, or are you going to cut the existing?

Re: Petrol turbo inlet valve coking

All direct injection engines are subjected to this. The fuel passing the inlet valves in indirect engines mostly cleans the carbon deposits. Direct injection engines no longer have fuel passing these valves, resulting in carbon deposits on the inlet valves. This is a negative side effect of all dire...

Waze on Carplay speedometer error

Any of you guys are using Waze over Carplay on their headunit? After the last Waze update it gives you the possibility to show the speedometer. While the actual position is correct, for some reason the speedometer only shows about half the actual speed (no I havent switched imperial to metric). Seem...

Re: Installation manual washer jet rear view camera

That one extensive how-to. This summer I am going to fit an extra light on the inside of the tailgate, might as well do this one too.

Re: Insignia B rear armrest

Thanks for the investigation. As for now, €169 is a bit too steep for me (assuming the currect leather cover can be re-used, else it will be €319).
Let me know if you planning on having a go (problably yes looking at all the mods you do).

Re: 2019 Refresh

The platform is GM, thus the engine mount positions and gearbox location (engineering) are all according to GM products. While fitting PSA engines is possible it is more likely they try to minimise costs/effort to keep the astra selling for only a year or 2. Next year the new 308 will be released, w...

Re: Poor Headlights

Even without your comparison picture I do beleive that your xenons are/appear more bright then halogen. More interesting would be to measure the lumens of the halogen, the corsa e xenon and the astra retrofit xenon/led. Bear in mind the human eye does not see brightness in a linear way. For example ...
