    cars going back to vauxhall tomorrow!

    Cars gotta go back to vauxhall tomorrow as I told them to respray the extras pack because theyve not done a very doog job of it. Doesn't look like they laquered it properly so the skirts look a much duller colour than the rest of the bodywork (managed to convince them to do it for free).

    Which means I'm gonna have some naff little Corsa courtesy car for a few days, really gonna miss the SRi but I'm sure I'll have some fun with the courtesy car!

    My MK5 is going back too at the end of the week as it has deckchair seat syndome. Sounds dreadful.

    Seat back really creaks. Gets quite irritating. Car's only 4 weeks old.

    Your old one must have had a design flaw? lol.

    Mine does it whenever I take a speedbump, although its only the drivers on what does it.

    Yeah and your car is 8 years old. Mine's 4 weeks old! I've only just done 2,000miles in it.

    Are you sure its the seat? A very loud creak can be heard from either side under the car when going over bumps when the brushes on the suspension need replacing. This is very common amongst astras (just had mine done).
