Big Mac said:I find the Mokka an excellent towcar. My van max weight is also 1200kg and the cars limit does restrict your choice of vans. You may have a van with a max weight of 1295kg but hopefully your are under that anyway. Trouble is if you go over and are stopped by the police and they check the weight on a weigh bridge you could be prosecuted. It does after all have the 1200kg towing weight on the V5. Can always put that extra weight in the car. Then again how often do caravans get pulled over in this way?
Big Mac said:Interesting on the tuning box. I contemplated it as on a previous Astra it was awesome. However current insurance won't allow it and was concerned about losing my lifetime warranty if Vauxhall could trace it after removal
Skunktank said:Also, if you are wanting to get your car remapped. I spoke to mr Thorne, of thorney Motorsport. His was an Ecu remap, and it was the only one I found to claim it would not void your warranty. There is even a few Vauxhall dealers dotted around the country that do the remap on behalf of thorney. For me, the nearest was either a dealer in Bridlington, or one over in Lancashire somewhere, to far from where I live! It was expensive tho, around 500 mark.
