Should'av bought another Renault!  ;D
Here's her old one if you want it:

I quite like the look of them to be honest.  :o  :D

Although that advert with the wealthy couple going off to their beach house for a shag, makes it look like the size of a Range Rover.  ::)

So it was a bit of a let down when I realised the Captur was more the size of a Fiesta!  :(  ;D
It's bigger than a fiesta, and much higher off the ground. Mo enjoyed driving it and was quite sad to see it go, but needs must. The bright red astra made her feel a bit better about the captur going.

Might be cheaper to drive to Nottingham and have Fuse19 Tech 2 it. At least he would actually know what he was doing, which isn't that likely at a VX dealer.
Tech2 won't work with Astra-J

Is that because it uses CANbus?

I thought there was a CAN adapter for Tech2 :-\

No, as of the Insignia, Astra J etc. GM switched to the MDI interface.

That said a standard OBD reader will pull codes.

CANdi is the adapter for Tech2, which allows Tech2 to work with Vectra-C/Signum, Astra-H and Corsa (-D?).

As Marks DTM says, Insignia onwards moved to PC based MDI
