Thought I might do this following on from a few PMs/general questions. N.B. This for a bootbuild only, not a full ICE system. I don't believe you can get a good quality full ICE system for under £500 (despite what Coops says :P).
Ultimately it depends what power you are looking at. My build...

I've bought Viecar 2.0 on Alieexpress but it doesn't work with corsa at all :(
I have had the emissions light on my Corsa C dashboard for a while now and when I do the pedal test it produces the code P0141. From researching I think it is the rear lambda sensor, which I believe doesn't really affect the running or fuelling of the car and it doesn't seem to have done.

My remote central locking doesn't respond to the key fob. Plugged in my Op-Com and it came up "wrong transponder code". I'm guessing this would mean that I need a virgin chip (ID40?) for the key fob and reprogram the key via Op-Com?
I've tried clearing the paired keys to no avail, the...
