Re: My 1.6 turbo

Hi not keen on lower springs, had Bilstien lowered springs dampers in my insignia and was always scraping front spoiler on speed humps carpark ramps etc. Have already got fitted intellilux led lighting.
Yes can’t beat 1.6t engine it’s fantastic.

Re: My 1.6 turbo

Re: What irritates you?

Re: What irritates you?

Biggest gripes on Sri vx line. Door mirrors that dont don’t close on automaticity , have to use a button. Parking sensors that are on permenatly. No availability of mud flaps for VX line models. Onstar closing in 18 months time. Otherwise the car is FANTASTIC, immensely fast, great petrol consumptio...

Re: fuel economy

Done 500 mikes so far so still really running in but getting 38mpg . That’s mostly short (10 mile) journey and 2 50 mile motorway journeys. Great for 200 brake car.
Had 2ltr insignia turbo (220 brake) before and was getting 28mpg max and round town down to 18.
So far WELL impressed with Astra.
