Progress thread Rusty2009
(9:th-Oct-2020, 21:12:39)marktourino Wrote: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view.Another quality install Rusty, glad that the system is up & running, I find with advance park assist ok but there is about a four inch gap between the kerb & the wheels when I use the park assist on the K.


Better that than curb rash on the wheels as a result.

So finally after getting a few dodgy sensors I've been able to complete the advanced park assist and blind spot retrofit.

The advanced park assist is total rubbish you have to stop before it will give the next command (but I didn't want it for that I just wanted the blind spot feature).


I’ve just come back online after getting back into an Astra, but a K this time.

Glad to see you’re still keeping on with the upgrades Russ. This must be one of the highest spec’d Js out there.

Cost is quite expensive as the mirror glass is £86-98 each alone.

I've had seen this on a Volvo a while back and loved it. I think like seatbelts, this & auto brake assist should be mandatory on new cars as safety features.

@Rusty2009 random question; how long do you expect to keep the car for? I often find myself balancing longevity with time & cost, however having just crossed 100k miles (happy mileday to car) with only a shock & mount needing replaced for the MOT I'd love to see my car do another 100k, and get an electric in a couple of years for city driving.

But I look at the car and think "its 8 years old, am I going to sink "new car" money into it over the next 5 years?"

Could do with fixing a number of rust spots for definite before they get worse.

I've had the car from new (my first & last brand new car), when I was looking at cars it was with the intension whatever I bought would last till I ran it into the ground.


In terms of electric cars I would never own one the dribble people are being fed on them is totally misleading and they aren't ZERO emissions most if not all have the batteries built into the floor pan meaning 5-10yrs the batteries will be dead and the car is scrap but that's a whole other debate.

I have some lacquer peel on the body and bumper which on speaking to my paint guy he's told me not to worry about as I have a full respray in the pipe line.

Got some H11 LED's as 1 of the corner lights blew, they were a little expensive but I'm impressed with them. fit into the headlamp so cover can be fitted back on the fan is on the top rather than the back.

NOVSIGHT are the one's I got from Amazon (may get them cheaper elsewhere but I like the hassle free returns with amazon).

Well, we've touch screen to the Navi950, along with android auto & apple car play.

The screen came from the USA, the interface also came from the USA which is fully plug and play but is not cheap.

There was custom firmware loaded on to the Navi to get this full customisation to include, Chevy theme (which I really like) DAB+, Rear camera with guide lines, Touch screen & infinity sound system.





Please note the above is possible on the Navi950's without rear guidelines on the camera and infinity sound as I'm sure You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view. will be sharing soon picture's.

Really happy to get this done and for me has worked out much cheaper than the aftermarket modular system I was looking into.

For me it's brought the Astra-J up to date lets face it the Astra-K isn't good on looks and any other astra going forward will just be a pug..

Precisely why I'm looking at a Volvo V60 Estate hybrid.

I believe so mate.

The Mrs Mokka is being done too, screen & interface on way, Only problem I see with the Mokka is the screen is a little further away and not in arms reach when driving but it can be all set before driving.

I've also bought cameras for both to put in the mirrors (which are controlled via the indictors) and camera for the front grill.

You'll have to have a stick to use it when driving.

The cameras in the mirrors and working when the indicators are on sound awesome.
