Re: Want to Install a Shark Finn Antenna

I had a stubby one off eBay for my H and it fit fine, no damage, slightly less signal. But some scally stole it one day! Replaced it with my old one and that is still on the car to this day, no problem with the thread or alteration in original signal. The thread on the aerial I had on my Astra H is...

How can you make sure thats what they put in? Sorry but I'm not very trusting unless I stand and watch them.

Should I buy the oil and hand it to them?

Re: Dexos 1 Generation 2 Oil for Turbo 1.4 Astra K

Just picked up my 'new' car last night. It's a MY16 16 plate 1.4t 150 with 9k miles and it feels smooth enough. Coming from a 1.6 n/a Astra H it fly's.

Question is should I buy this new gen2 oil as a precaution and have a local garage change it. Is 5l enough oil?
