Never had any creaks from my 16 plate 1.6t with nearly 40000 miles on the clock

Re: 1.6t Remap

Only problem is the M32 gearbox is only rated to 320 NM. Even on stock power the box is pretty weak. I think that they’re better than they used to be, but I personally wouldn’t want to take the risk. Gearbox will be fine as long as you don't abuse it every day. They are better than the old boxes wh...

Re: Astra 1.6T 200 Elite refinement

I've never drove a Leon so can't compare that to an Astra K. However I've owned around 8 Astra's, starting from the F up to the K. Sounds like it's down to lack of noise insulation on the K at higher speeds. After fitting a narrower tyre to my K, from 225's to 205's on 16's from previous 17's. My i...

Re: E parking brake mishap

My 1.6t has hill start assist and a good old fashioned handbrake.

Re: 1.6T engine stutter when cold

We have used the Esso 95 originally when I got the car before I realised it recommended 98 and I don't remember the issue then however it was warm we I got the car. I'll give it a go for a tank or two and see if it changes anything. Always put shell v power in my 1.6t. Never had the issue you descr...

Re: Golf gti or astra 1.6t Sri

Hi, First time on the forum and this caught my attention as I have gone from a 2017 GTI (facelift) to a 1.6T Astra (long story). The astra has some charms, but my word it is nowhere in the same league as the GTI when it comes to dynamics, fun and speed. The GTI has 230 BHP on paper, but felt more l...
