    Outside Mirror Heater Fault

    Ahhh. So i pressume both mirrors are heated on all f10/f11's. My left mirror doesnt heat up so i wonder if its faulty as well.

    Pre LCI halogen headlights

    It might, but plenty of people seem to get through the mot with no issues. Im certainly going to take the chance.

    Pre LCI halogen headlights

    The halogens are rubbish. Im going to get a aftermarket hid kit fitted when i get the chance. Dont bother with a genuine retrofit as its far too expensive in my opinion.

    Oil offer

    Just a heads up.... Halfrauds are doing Castrol at half price at the moment. £17.50 for 4 litres. :D

    Seat issue

    I noticed my front passanger seat rattling today, i hate rattles so i pulled over to try and sort it. It would seem that the seat is only locking into position on one track, causing it to move slightly when driving and creating a rattling noise. (I have the partial electric setup so back and forth movement is done manually). Has anybody else experienced this? And does the whole seat need to come out, or can i just remove the base? Thanks in advance

    After some thought of getting shut over christmas, and a test drive of a possible replacement that didnt end well, i had to get the old girl MOT'd today. Passed with no advisories....yaaay!

    Who makes the front foglights ?

    I replaced mine with after market. They are halogen and a very easy swap.

    What did you do to your F07/F10/F11 today?

    I took mine to a garage for the work as i just didnt have time to do it myself. A quick look on youtube shows its easily do-able jacked up on a driveway.
