Re: Tyre Pressure Issues

Electric Corsa 45kW Battery?

Re: Niggles

The air con default is ON rather than OFF when turning on ignition. My brother has a Honda and it always defaults to start/stop feature being on so I made a micro-controlled relay to toggle it once it had started. The one advantage my brothers car had was the button was external. If it does default...

Re: Front disc scoring

Hi All, I'm very close now to putting down a deposit to buy my first 'New' 'Electric' 'Corsa'. Although I will be going for the Elite Nav 11kW, there are a few things that bug me about the Corsa: Why can't I get the adaptive cruise control on the electric version? :-( Why is there no off option on t...
