    So ive started repairing the car ive had to drain the coolant to remove the front slam panel, question is how much coolant does it take to fill and any recommended brands or is it a case of anything thats red? I do have some oem Vauxhall coolant would that be ok?

    G13+ from Audi is what I suggest, dilute it 50/50, I always use this.

    And don't forget to bleed out the air or you'll get that dreaded heater matrix problem and a lack of heat.

    What's the dreaded heater matrix problem? Is it not just like every other car to bleed?

    It is easy to bleed ricky but not everyone remembers to do it properly and end up with a problematic air lock in the heater matrix which can be a pain to shift after the event, best get it right the first time.

    Ok shouldn't be a problem then, thought you was going to say something out of the ordinary which wouldn't surprise me with this car tbh
