    Cool Astra mk5 Tricks!

    Ive just read about the 'lazy lock' on the windows in another post where you can turn your engine off and leave your windows open, get out the car, press lock once, press again for deadlock then press and hold lock a 3rd time and your windows go up

    Thats bloody ace. I never knew about it haha.

    Anyway after messing about I also worked out that you can (after driving) turn your engine off and take the key out, tap full beam and get out your car and your lights stay on for 30 seconds

    Are there anymore funky little things like this you can do?

    LOL, well ... if you can think of a better use, I am all ears!

    Cannot think of anything else at the moment, but if someone comes up with something, willing to give it a try!

    You could stick it up your arse if you wanted to?!

    Im still amazed I can turn traction control off holding the sport button, I drove around depressed thinking Id bought this ace car and I could never make smoke (on a closed non public road... obviously) for 6 months until I read about it on this and got all excited. Them 2 other things have put the icing on the cake but I want more!!!

    Mine doesn't close windows, my Dads 5 door BSM Corsa does.

    Oooooh, talking about TC, mine obviously doesn't have it. Was uterlly shocked this morning when I wheel span it not only 1st, but 2nd gear on a slightly damp road. Not that it bothers me too much as front tyres are not new, and will need replacing soon. But I will not be doing it when I get new tyres though!
