Misrepresenting the vehicle make, I'm sure that's a criminal offence  ;D

Corrected the misrepresentation for you. Vauxhall hasn't been British since 1925

But Joe public buy Vauxhall because they think they are buying "British"
though lots of Astra & Corsa drivers are keen to rebadge to Opel blitz  ???

 ;D. Yes, it's one of them new fangled EVs, the V6 under the bonnet is a ruse  ;D

I actually invested in a battery maintainer and conditioner.  Got the AA one and it's been in use for 6months and battery strong and 13.5v when I measured  :D

I've dangled the small unit and wire deliberately in view so I don't drive off forgetting to unplug it  ;D

Interestingly, the Opel grill also had a blanking panel so you could blank off the top half of the grill at the back.  I assume that was for the more colder countries ? I left it off for now 😅
