Re: ASTRA K DOUBLE AGR

My neighbour with an Astra K SRI Nav ST had this done at the local UK dealership - he would never say how much it cost, but I would say £400 up to £700. I thought that I was getting two AGR seats when I ticked the option - I still think the car would have been far better with two. I would think tha...

Re: QUICK HEATINF FOR ASTRA K

Re: New steering column

I wonder if there is any practical or security implications to this. Mine does it, but it has not gotten any worse over the 1½ year i have had it, so i guess it gets to this point and then it does not get any worse. Will offcourse have it changed if i fail the MOT or it is deemed dangerous, but if i...

Re: Phone settings (Bluetooth)

I can not give a definitive answer but you probably dont have the BC function enabled. (Board Computer) Vauxhall has this stupid idea that some software-only items should not be enabled on all models and specs. On my Zafira B, it was not enabled, and i had to change an index code for it to show. Pro...

Re: 1.6 Diesel Astra K Clutch Fault

Hello, i am looking for some advise if anyone can help!! I have an Astra k 1.6 diesel, we had the master and slave cylinder replaced (under warranty) in December as the clutch was sticking on and had to be pulled out by hooking your foot under it. Since then we have now encountered a new issue, whe...

Re: Anyone feeling a "C" change

No electric car for me. My country is aggressively anti-car and anti-consumer with the amount and size of taxes and fees, so it's just unrealistic unless being rich. My country as well. Talking a lot about people should buy electric cars but electric cars are still a lot more expensive than petrol ...

Re: rust on seat runners

They have probably painted the bare metal with a black paint that will adhere in a 1 atom thick layer.

A bit like the thickness of Chrome on Chinese motorcycles :)

Re: Coding, "Traffic sign recognition" to 2020 SRi

The car manufacturer wouldn't need to do it this way - it could all be software based. Pay, and we unlock. I for one would enable automatic seat heating. Absolutely. This is truly an asshole decision. I get that options and packages makes sense for ACC, heated steering wheel, etc. etc. But for smal...

Re: Anyone feeling a "C" change

No electric car for me, I live in a second floor flat and parking is 'on street'. I don't think my neighbours would appreciate me running a power cord down the side of the building and across the path :D I agree, in my country 1/3 of all people live in a flat, and until there are a LOT more public ...

Re: Anyone feeling a "C" change
