Tricky one the bringgo app for me...
I only use a sat nav once or twice a year at most and I already have a garmin (it's a few years old but does the job..) so for me I don't need it.
If I were to use a sat nav a lot more frequently than what I do now then I'd be buying the BringGo app. It is a shame Vauxhall couldn't offer it included or even discount it a bit but at £50 it's a 1/3rd of what my Garmin cost.

DON'T PUT A SPONGE ON YOUR PAINT! If you want your car to keep looking good use a lambs wool wash mit or similar. A sponge is the worst thing you could use. I've just spent the last two days perfecting the paint on our adam after the dealer inflicted swirl marks all over the car due to poor washing techniques. Vauxhall paint is very soft and will mark easily.

I used a dual action polishing machine and some professional polishes takes quite a while to do but the car looks great afterwards. If you dont want to go down that route you can buy some polishes from the high street stores that will mask the swirls but this is a short lived solution. If you really want it sorted you need to get someone to correct your paint but this will likely cost around £300+. Its all a bit ocd but im really pleased with how the car looks now. You could buy the kit for around £150 and do it yourself with a bit of research. Dealers have no idea how to look after paint. Most valet their cars with the lowest cost in mind.

You'll see them on a nice sunny day, promise you. Unless you have a lighter colour car. They don't show up as much on silvers dark colours are the worst.Edited by: ALTEA
