Hi, i have on order Astra Sports Tourer 1.6T 200HP Innovation. This trim level does not have SPORT button. Is it worth it to call my dealer to include this option for 200eur? Button only comes with black roof lining option, which i don't know if i like this in estate car... Any suggestions. Thanks

Hello

The feedback i got on the 1.6 200HK car is that with the sport button engaged the car is like a compleete diffirent car (probably because the responds and handling) i would if i could ordered it with the button 👍

Ok great. Thanks for info. I have another question. What color exactly is black roof lining. Is it more gray or is it 100% black. Is the cabin dark or there is no difference.?

Hi

Roof lining in mine is 100% Black and I've not noticed it being any darker inside than my old car that had a white roof lining.

I was just notified from my dealer that they can not change order and add sport button anymore because the car is already scheduled for production. :cry: Is retrofitting sport button at the dealer possible?

Reckon the dealer could do it if they are willing. But it will cost more than factory

Yeah, i talked with my dealer again, but he said that this is no-go, because car has entered the production.

I have another question, if i floor the gas is there any difference between sport mode on or off?

When sport button is on.There is certainly a big difference in how the car performs.You won't get the same if just flooring it without the sport mode.Some say Sport button makes the car pull away quicker some say it just makes everything more responsive.You have got to have it to see what your missing.And if I was given a choice.Say a 1.6T with or without the sport button.Id chose with every time.Because it's like driving a different car with sport mode on
