    Astra Coupe Traction Control

    I have a 1.8 coupe and wouldn't mind fitting traction control. Has anybody done this to a 1.8 coupe and how easy was it?

    Any help is much appreciated

    You should already have traction control but it isn't fitted with the traction control switch just below the ashtray ,

    Not if the car doesn't have traction control fitted. All the switch will do is give you the option to turn it off.

    I'd be surprised if your car doesn't have it TBH.

    I think it has traction control because it flashes on the dash if i do loose traction. So it should be a pretty much straight forward job?

    If yours is 5 stud it has TC, if it's 4 stud it doesn't even have ABS.
