i having flapping sounds when i drive past 90 from my right side wheel arch and door but when i inspect there is nothing there caught in between, i only recently noticed this noise as the weather is cooler and i wind down my window for cool air and off the aircon...

Any bros experienced this sound? It pretty loud when i open the window... but my window is only open with 0.5cm gap...so its not the noise from the wind... its an audible flapping noise...

I don’t drive Opel. But from my past experiences with 4 previous cars, out of 4 times:

2 times is tyre kena nails, so when the nail is rotated to contact the ground got that kinda sound

1 time is wheel arch/mudguard came loose

Last time is slight bulge in tyre and the bulge was rubbing against something in the wheel arch. Slow speed can’t really hear. Go expressway more than 70km/h and above then can hear.

So not sure if you have same case as me, just sharing my experience.

U try wind down your passenger window together with driver window and listen if there's still flapping sound.

Not sure whether the SE know it or not.
i personally experienced once below 60km/h with a vehicle in front as i step on the accelerator while moving off. It activated the E-brake and stalled the engine. Now i have to set the anti-collision distance to nearer instead.

All along I believe there was no auto braking.

But today, I experienced it! OMG! Stupid van braked excessively. I didn’t apply sufficient braking and the car actually ebrake, ABS kicking in and all. Then the collision alarm went off! WTF

Wow! That means the Astra has Collision Alert and ACTIVE EMERGENCY BRAKING! Hip Hip Hooray!

 

Best bang for your buck with all these features!

 

I have never regretted my purchase 11 months ago.

here's the dashcam clip. Can see my car suddenly brake and the car dip, then followed by the collision alarm

 

I must admit I was caught off guard by that van. If it wouldn't for the brake assist I would have kiss his butt. The brake and the alarm really woke me up.

Congrats on choosing a car with the right safety functions. One accident that gets averted is already worth the money. 

But honestly I don't think the van braked excessively bro... you got lucky that you did not kiss his posterior...

My collision alert also got activated for the first time yesterday. Was crossing a traffic light and it turned amber, so I sped up but the van in front of my braked instead. There was a loud beeping noise and there's a flashing light on the dashboard that went off (Automatically gets reflected to your windscreen). 

 

But I quickly stepped on my brakes so I'm not sure if it was the auto brake or my own braking that slowed down the car.  [laugh]

If I'm not mistaken. Only 1.0 is Neutral. 1.4 got slapped with a 10k surcharge.

Anyone drove the ST version? How is it?

I collected my ST after Christmas, is a great car to drive. As many had said they do not regret getting the car. I’m travelleing east to West everyday clicking approx.120km per day by SLE KJE And PIE.... it clocks 750-800km and left with 1/8 tank. With occasional step down on the accelerator. It has short range power for over taking batter than a 1.6l car. As the car is still new, I’m not sure about the reliability but till now it is working fine for me.
