Have not successfully managed to do this,, the Opel Tech will not provide my an VCI code to program it yet..
is still in search to find an Opel dealer that would provide med the VCI code (and program it into the car for me)

I would like to know this too. I would bet that there's no special parts required other than the button, it's just a question of whether there's some kind of lockout coded into the ECU that prevents it from being retrofitted.

Have then managed to get the VCI code programmed into the car by an Opel dealer her in Norway.
Have also fitted a brand New sport button (Complete unit behind the gir shifter), but the sport button does not lights up and there is no response to the car..

Is there anyone With the sport button fitted that can respond to some of my questions?

- is there any Sport settings under the settings menu ?
- is there anyone that can provide a Picture of all the fusebox in the car (under bonnet, inside the car and in the boot)?
- is there any sport settings in the instrument clusters menu?

regards

I can help with these two

No
- is there any sport settings in the instrument clusters menu?
No , it just pops up on the Screen with "Sport Mode on" or "Sport Mode off" when you press the button.

Do you know which ECUs were programmed? I'd have thought as a minimum the BCM, engine ECU and IPC need programming.
