    Will get all four checked properly i think, its not unknown for sensors to read a few psi out anyway.

    i have Ryboi power tools so going to get tyre inflater to keep in boot, has auto cut off at set pressure etc. I have a battery in the back for hoover, so makes sense really.

    I Found 5 psi difference (what you had in photo) is to much on mine, it can drop couple psi overnight, and during last summer with the abnormal temperatures while driving it increased psi quite alarmingly.

    No, I'm sorry. Car has been on axle stands I was doing my rear shocks. My wife is having a serious operation tomorrow so won't be able to check for a few days.

    Just wondering now....does the sensors need to be specifically for the insignia??
    Or would any sensor do from any make or model of car as long as it's the same frequency ???

    I'm unsure on the process of how the ECU is integrated with the sensors. Whether they need to be specific.

    Which begs to question why are they so expensive if you can get them for example a bmw or audi with the same frequency.

    Who knows

    If look at aftermarket pictures insignia are different to the Astra and Corsa.

    I don't think they need to be so expensive and would suggest most faults are probably battery related. Need someone to strip one down and see if battery can be changed.

    It's just greed, price will drop as after market types increase.
