    Twin Top help

    Hi there, just found this site so this is a hi! and a request. Not sure if this is the right forum but I have to start somewhere.

    I have had my new Twin Top 1.8 VVT for 3 months now. Overall I am very happy. But, in the gumph it says I can open/close the roof at or below 18 mph. This doesn't happen, it won't allow me to open/close it if the wheels are moving. I know it's a petty whinge but it must look so cool driving through Tesco's carpark with the lid moving. Ok, I know i'm a saddo but what the hell, it's my car!

    Secondly, I have noticed a strong smell of petrol after fuelling it disappears after a few miles, is this a common problem?

    Cheers in advance
    DB

    if its like the mark 4, you have to have the hand brake on. just click it to the first notch, and all should work

    Firstly, welcome to the site... this is definatley the right forum for anything Astra related...

    if the brochure says you can open/close the lid at less then 18mph then you should be able to do it... if it doesnt work then take it your dealer.

    I can smell petrol, but only if i dont close the filler cap tightly...

    Cheers, dg. I have just contacted the dealer and they want to see it next week. Better see my boss for some time off. As for the petrol thingy I always go past the first click.
