Default Adding Sport Button to Opel

This video shows us how to install and activate the sport button on a similar Opel Zafira. The process may be similar for the Astra. Activate closed captions if you don't understand the mechanic.

What does the sport button do to our cars? Does it tune the ECM to improve performance?

I think the guy in the videos summarizes the changes.

IIRC, maybe more responsive throttle response, a bit tighter steering, firmer suspension (Euro cars with active suspension option). I think he said no additional power. I don't know if it changes engine mapping, the traction control or braking systems but the Euro forums will know.

This requires some programming so it would be interesting if that was unlocked for North American Astras.

Those would be worth checking out. Specially the throttle response!
