    I was looking for everything they offer really (engine and suspension if they off the lot, they haven't confirmed yet), not checked recently but they were still building Insignia specific ones, tooling was being built etc.

    Any news on yours? She running yet?

              • Powerflex have now released bushes for the Insignia models

                https://www.powerflex.co.uk/products...s+-3512/1.html

                Does anyone know if the rear suspension bushes from the FWD car will fit / be compatible with the rear of our cars / 4x4 models?

                  • These were changed out in the end, both pipes had corrosion. All done at Astons.

                      • Both the cars headlights stopped working, only the AFL 'moving eye' element.

                        The daytime LED's, indicators etc were all fine, it was just the main beam / headlight at night which failed on both left and right sides.

                        Turns out these let in moisture over time, and there is a small set of wholes / gaps between the ballast connecting module and the underside of the headlight itself. Water has gathered and blown the ballast / stopped it from working.

                        When we took it apart, we pushed air into the ballast and a load of water came gushing out. You could shake it and hear all the water that was there.

                        We applied black moisture resistant sealant into and around the rectangle block connector and the small gaps we could see using an LED light, this shouldn't happen again. Seems like a design fault to me, as both went a month apart from each other.

                        I had to replace both ballasts and a fuse to get them working again.

                        Purchased them from here:-
