    Noisy Bluetooth

    Hi Voxy.....welcome to the Forum I can only imagine it is suffering from Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) which used to occur in older cars and was caused by electrical 'noise' from the alternator and ignition system. The way around it was to fit a Suppressor (which is basically a Capacitor) which then dampened the 'noise' and this cured it. You should still be able to get one in a motor accessory store and fit it to the alternator to start with and see if this cures it Let us know how you get on with it

    What signum do you drive??

    I agree with your love of old school Pugs...had a few myself and in those days they seemed to be quite bulletproof. I don't think we'll see the end of Vauxhall although it could be a rebadging exercise as Opel possibly?

    PIN CODES

    Hi Julia....welcome to the Forum Here is an interesting article about the horn situation and I would certainly be hassling Vauxhall to sort this issue as it is a manufacturing issue and safety related. https://whatconsumer.co.uk/forum/threads/bbc-watchdog-the-horn-that-doesnt-warn.10231/ Here is a link to the issue with the PIN codes. You will have to approach Vauxhall with your V5 and they charge around £30. There are also companies online who can get the pin but you have to remove your dashboard speedo cluster and send it to them, they remove and read a chip where the pin is stored. So maybe best to pay Vauxhall the money to get them to proceed. http://www.vauxhallsecuritycode.co.uk/

    PLEASE HELP

    Hi....welcome to the Forum Sounds like there are several different faults with the car so would be best to look at each one individually. The loss of power could be a number of things but my first thoughts are that it needs a damn good blast to clear out the engine. If there is 'mayo' under the oil filler cap then this is usually condensation brought on by lots of short runs and the engine not getting hot enough for long enough to dry out the condensation within the cooler parts of the engine (e.g. valve cover) The exhaust could be corroded once again by all the condensation over time. Loss of power and engine temperature would need to be investigated further but I would almost guarantee that it is short runs that are choking everything up so to sum up, take it on a good long run with hard driving to clear it through. Let us know how you get on with it

    It could be a number of things affecting the Engine Management and the only way to proceed from here is to scan the ECU for Fault Codes to see where the problem lies

    thoughts on corsa 2015?

    Hi Tanner...welcome to the Forum In general, it is like any other car in so much as if it is maintained correctly and has records to prove this (e.g. regular oil and also cambelt change) then there is no reason to believe it won't go on without issue for many years to come. Having looked at the advert, it does look like a very clean and well looked after car. Good luck with it and let us know how you get on

    Headlight bulbs

    I would try Halfords as they do a good range of aftermarket bulbs such as Phillips and other brands with enhanced light output

    Does it still do it when the clutch is depressed?

    Astra G fuel economy.

    Yeh, that doesn't sound good economy at all.....maybe the latter option is the way forward 🙂

    Headlight bulbs

    Hi...welcome to the Forum Are the headlamp bulbs that poor lighting? Would have thought that a 2018 car should have quite good lighting technology (e.g. HID)
