  Astra J wing mirror

My wing mirror glass from passenger side just fell off during drive. Should I buy replacement from the ebay or try to find a genuine one?

Hi have just changed the front door speakers in my 2017 GTC using Rustys how to guide, I found that my window lift switchs were held in place by a screw at the rear as well as the front clips, hope this helps save you getting  sore thumbs trying to push them out like me, don't know if this is only on the GTC they are not mentioned on any door card removal I have read anywhere else

  Can You Add Front Fogs to an Astra J?
Posted by: SAMW98SO - 6:th-Apr-2020, 17:57:17 - Forum: Astra-J/GTC - Replies (1)

My 2011 1.7 CDTI Astra J does not have front fog lights, just the turn signals where the fogs would be. So can you upgrade and add front fogs to the Astra J?

  Information Regarding Lowering My Astra J
Posted by: SAMW98SO - 6:th-Apr-2020, 17:53:33 - Forum: Astra-J/GTC - Replies (10)

Hi there, I can see that there are other threads regarding this matter but I can't seem to find the exact information I'm after. I have a 2011 Astra J 1.7 CDTI and I want to lower it, so I have been looking at Eibach springs as I don't want to go for cheap coilovers. Ideally I'm aiming for a drop of at least 30mm all round as you know the arch gap is pretty big as standard. I have recently put 18" VXR alloys onto the car also. Can anyone provide me some clearer and more up to date information about this. Thanks.

  Is Dexos 2 oil necessary
Posted by: benawhile - 1:st-Apr-2020, 19:36:48 - Forum: Request for information - Replies (5)

One of our local garages has a reputation as the safest MOT inspection garage in town and I am reluctant to change it. However they do not use Dexos 2, they use C3 fully synthetic.
I only do 10,000 per year these days but I am happy to do an annual oil change is enough for me, although the service manual says that a Dexos 2 service interval is 2 years.

To confuse things further the local Vauxhall dealer service centre recommend a yearly, not 2 yearly, service even for Dexos 2, and also informed me that Dexos 2 is fully synthetic. All other info I can find says it is semi synthetic.

Smile Changed my wheels - what you think?
Posted by: Vx-Mad-G - 23:rd-Mar-2020, 09:36:52 - Forum: Astra-J/GTC - Replies (7)

So, a few weeks, maybe a coupe of months, ago I posted You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view.message about a set of wheels I bought.

You guys advised they were off an Astra Bi-Turbo.

I really liked the look of these and they were practically mint. So I fancied a change so decided to upgrade.

My car is an Elite, I never every liked the original wheels anyway, so last year I changed them to the SRI Facelift Turbine style wheels.

But now that these have come across, I really like them. These are also slightly bigger, 18" so fill the arches really nice.

Whats your thoughts?

Pictures are after giving the car a proper clean yesterday.

Thanks.
