It’s called forever black, similar to using cherry blossom shine but not as shiney at the end

I made a lot of mess on a tarpaulin and changed the colour of my headlining

That head liner looks smart, what did you use, dye or spray? I just had to replace my lower side runner too, alot easier then I expected it to be.

Sprayed the headlining with cheap satin black and trimmed the shelf with some material Image

Chaps
Need some advice. Charged the car and have taken for a spin, and all good. I now have engine light on ? It’s not misfiring, any ideas please ? Is this due to battery going completely flat perhaps ?
Cheers for some advice

Ahh @gazza31112
Strange coincidence, as 3 weeks ago I filled up with Adblue as well, and may have put a drop too much in as well, but didn’t notice a light afterwards, and obviously haven’t been anywhere, can it just be cleared on ignition, or is it VCDS scan and reset ?

I tried to clear mine but it just comes back, apparently from what I have read the sensor needs recalibrating, you can only refill the amount it says on the dash, I just filled until it overflowed, which apparently confuses the sensor.
Not certain of this, it's just what Iv read.

I haven't bothered to get it checked as my warranty has just run out lol, Iv got a fault code of failure to read NOX sensor b, I assume that's something to do with adblue, but still runs fine.

And my light came on 2 days after I filled with adblue, not straight away
