How did you order this box? when I go on their website there isn't an option for Astra K 1.6t. Only Astra J.

Cheers

...so i guess the power delivery must be smoother/easier to handle than the sri sport mode? .... ie not so much throttle from the off

Sport mode is like on/off switch.

With this box, normal driving is just the same as before. It’s only when you floor it, it picks up quicker and puts you back in your seat more.

How much will TDI charge to fit this? I'm interested for the 150 too, but the description of the install seems a bit fiddly and I'd like to be around mechs who I can turn to if it didn't work straight away.

Free of charge for the garage to install mate.

Just FYI

I’m seeing an average of 4-5mpg increase under normal day to day driving.
And on a long run (Wirral to Devon) fully loaded for holiday, I’m getting (between trip and miles to empty tank) 590 miles.
