    Some advice on new Astra please

    Hi
    For the first time in 50 years of driving I have bought a brand new car,an Astra 1.4 Life, 5 door Manual, petrol model. 11 miles on the clock when I got it, it's now done 600 miles. I have 3 questions to ask.
    When moving off in 1st gear, it's a bit noisy when I let the clutch in. This has become a bit quieter over the past couple of weeks. Does a clutch need time to "bed in"?

    When I press the infotainment button, "BC", "No Function" appears on the screen. This is where it's supposed to tell you what MPG is.

    If the rear offside door window steams up, I can clearly see where a delivery notice has been stuck, with "Zeebrugge" and stock numbers visible. I have tried unsuccessfully to clean this off. Any tips?

    I know I should go back to the dealer with these points, but frequent hospital visits with my wife at present makes for little spare time.
    I hope someone can help this old guy
    Kind regards

    Welcome young un. Dont know about clutch, but I had similar with sticker evidence once window steamed up. I used a little white spirits on a rag to remove any trace of the film that was left once sticker had been removed, then cleaned off with glass cleaner.

    As for BC functions this is dependant of spec level I believe. Could take it to dealer to see if it can be activated to open up more functions.
