  • Mods available to a factory standard build?

    Hello all

    I have just got my astra vxr arctic since waiting April. Originally i had planned to get sight and light and climate control mods but the car was delayed over and over and the last date i receieved to get my car was end of Oct so instead i opted for a factory standard build which the dealer managed to get his hands on.

    Just wondering if there are any vauxhall mods that can be fitted to a factory spec? Ive had cruise control retro fitted is there anything else you guys know of?

    you can add s+l and afl's etc
    but it will cost you an arm and leg

    check control and anti hijack can just be programmed like the cruise control

    oh and you can upgrade the stereo and screen but these also need programming
    also believe you can retro fit bluetooth but not sure on costs for that

    hope this helps

        im interested in the TPMS and parking sensors mate
        i have a vxmmi and i know you can wire it to that

        any idea what sort of cost i'd be looking at?

        also if anyone has a clue how to wire (solder in) an external mic to a gen1 vxmmi
        that would be nice

                well tpms you need a new center console, buttons, sensors and reciver so thats about £250 to buy.

                the reversing sensors are about the same

                  Sorry to say, if you wanted s & l, and climate control I would have waited a bit longer.

                  S&L you can retro fit, but will cost more than getting the factory fitted.

                  Climate control, I would not even bother looking it will be very expensive and may not be possible as you need to replace so many items.

                              Don't forget you need at least a gid or cid for tpms.
                              Moosh mate if you wanted tpms you can fit that to your vxmmi same wit parking sensors, iirc you'll need one wit a display so instead of plugging it in you plug our radio. As for the mic on idea mate. Shouldn't be hard to open it up fine the original mic and solder to its connectors.
