    My twintop didn't come with a sport button but instead it has a button to enable and disable the reverse parking sensors. Since I would never want to disable those sensors I was hoping I could use it as a button to enable sport mode. Has anyone tried this before? Would it even be possible?

    Hi, I will need to replace my damaged bootlid in Astra H hatchback, 5 doors. Have already found a spare one, same color, still attached to the donor car. Trouble is the donor looks to me to be before 2006 model. My Astra is 2008. Is there any differences I should be aware of, before purchase...

    Hi. I have a 2010 Astra H 1.7cdti. The engine management light (spanner light) comes on a few seconds after the car starts and stays on constantly. There aren't any codes showing on the local garage OBD scan, but the pedal test shows P0683. I've checked glow plug voltage, all okay. Three of...

    Hey guys, I own a Astra H 1.6 Turbo. Thinking whether to forge the Z16LET or do a Z20LEH conversion. If I have the full engine and gearbox, is it a straight swap or an easy enough conversion ? If not, what else would I need
  12. Astra - VXR Chat
    I'm new to the VXR scene however I also own and drive an Astra 1.7cdti and the 1.9cdti sri. I've just bought my Astra VXR and although I'm in love with the car the seats are really annoying me as they seem huge with zero headroom. They're as low down as possible but I just can't seem to find a...

    I'm new to the VXR scene however I also own and drive an Astra 1.7cdti and the 1.9cdti sri. I've just bought my Astra VXR and although I'm in love with the car the clutch is really bugging me, the clutch seems mega high, like literally right at the top (biting point) I seem to be changing gear...

    Hi! I recently installed a new 2DIN radio in my astra and it worked for a while but now it doesn't. The power source is that extra empty plug with CIG lighter. At first I thought it was a fuse but no, fuses are all good. Then I thought well maybe the plug itself is broken or the cable must be...

    Hi everyone, I'm hoping someone can shed some light on my situation. Travelling down the motorway (fuel light on) the car suddenly showed the spanner light (looks like a spanner and car) revs were reduced down to 2k and would go no higher and it felt as though there was complete loss of power...

    So my girl recently bought a Astra H. I'm currently doing a few bits and pieces servicing etc. The current air filter setup the car came with looks home made to me.
