    Latest mod (another button to play with)

    I kept this one a little quiet in case I blew up the car, but all done. Switchable TC on my SRi Turbo :P



    The only thing I'm not happy about is the colour of the new trim, I had to use a black one and match the colour out a can. Not really possible, as the paint came up glossy and I had to blend two colours to get the satin effect and the grey colour. Hopefully OPC Neinhaus will come up trumps with the right parts, as Vauxhall didn't

    I couldn't get the colour I wanted in a can, if I'd used two pack it would have gone on too thick and lost the texture. I used Vauxhall Gunmetal Silver over a base coat of grey plastic primer, then blew a dust coat of grey primer over the Silver, to knock back the shine and get the colour close to the original dash colour grey.

    I have also asked Joerg if he can supply the right trim for your car, as the match is not perfect :roll:

    yeah I've got this prob too.... used the proper vaux part ( the one designed for no buttons rather than three ) and as a result the button sticks up a bit far.... not nice and flush

    looks good in the pic mate though steve?

    Some 2.2s you can, some you can't. So far as I know all the ESP equipped cars use one pin (25) on the ABS computer and the others, well not sure yet, some are pin pin 31, some have it used already and I need to work that one out.

    You also need to make up a loom from the ABS/ESP computer to the button. I got mine made up from a guy who supplies our works (told him what I wanted and 3 weeks later he came back with one which fits) and it looks pukka (Lightning Coupe has one as well), they matched the pin which goes into the ABS computer up just about perfect.

    You could make up your own loom and buy the switch, then you need to pick a 12v off the ciggie lighter to make the switch light up and an earth under the bonnet

    Have a look at the other threads regarding this subject

    god damn it! :x

    As Steve has pointed out we are having problems with certain types of 2.2's

    Can people who are considering this mod please fill in this Word document as it would help greatly in find out which pin it is for the 2.2 G's

    Cheers.
