with your fogs do you get a pulse (flicker) when you turn ignition on ?.I have the beamtech bulbs with resistors.No errors on dash but the flicker for a few seconds with key on.

Hi mate
Guess I was lucky ? No pulse or flickering and no errors straight from the box

Got so many jobs backing up, and first MOT on the 21st.
I’ve been hankering to try out 18’s on mine, and have just bought a set of Audi (ex demonstrator) alloys 5x112 8Jx18 ET40’s with excellent Bridgestone’s on, from an Audi main dealer Image going to collect in the morning. The alloys are absolutely mint, but one has a tiny mark on it, though, they were, in my mind a really cheap deal that couldn’t be passed up.

Very weird, they were in amongst loads of listings for alloys on eBlag. Thought this is strange, and it turned out to be a main dealer just unloading some stock from previous customers, they had been on a demo car, and the buyer wanted to upgrade I think, I’d been trawling for days, seeing refurbished ones, and ones described as light rashes 😫etc etc, and this just caught my eye. Collecting tomorrow am.

She had her first MOT today, and passed with flying colours ImageImage
Have taken it over to my mate’s place, we’re doing Powerflex camber adjustable bushes on the front, 24mm Whiteline ARB, at the rear, and Darkside wobble blocks tomorrow
Some of the bits looked a bit cruddy, so have had a clean and a touch up.Image
