Welcome to AON :wave:

Nice cab you've got there, although I personally think the wheels look a bit too big for the G profile... :)

As for the noise, sounds to me like it could be the low brake pad warning? There's usually a clip or something on the brake pad that will cause a squeaking/ringing noise when the brake pads get low to warn you audibly that you need to change your pads. Might be that? :shrug:

thanks always nice when people say that . its really clean which is nice for the age only thing is I be 5th owner but only done just under 50k. seems to drive spot on. I dunno if this is right with the astras but acceleration seems to be delayed. when you put your foot down the reaction is not so instant? I had a 350z before and throttle response very good

Welcome to AON (Y) Nice cab

Throttle delay can be bad on the G's as they were the first cars to use electronic throttle, Pedal Box is what you need!

thanks everyone , i agree its a bit too low on the arches which makes it very hard on the road so hopeing to sort that and get it up a bit. thanks molly google for the pedal box info .
i have a gsi style bumper hopefully going on soon but apparantely you need the fogs and inserts how much do they normally cost anyone. who is good for doing remaps on the astras someone reliable and does the maps properly (custom).???
