HahA:D Ecotec do not sound very good without a resonator. Throw a nice magnaflow resonator in there, sounds really good.

Re: Astra 45k mile service - inexpensive & runs like new!

Funny you mention the P0128 code, I got it for the first time ever this year and wondered if my thermostat was needing to be replaced soon. Glad it's only a computer issue, I've since cleared it but...

Re: 2008 Saturn Astra Passenger airbag sensor?

Re: 2008 Saturn Astra Passenger airbag sensor?

Re: Another Flexpipe

I've gone through e-test and got a safety with the CAT removed, not even a hair was raised about it missing. Most people probably won't even know there was two on the car. MTO and police would only...

Re: Not Able to Initiate TPMS Relearn

Also something that no one mentioned is that the Canadian/US model of the astra don't have the capability to learn the TPMS. The system can't display each tire individually, to "re-learn" the sensors...

Re: LED that work

You would be better off getting a quality HID canbus kit for roughly the same price and you will have better output. Been using HID in my astra for over 6 years now with no issues. Finally burnt out...
