Re: Brexit Bonus!

It is that sort of reporting, misinformation and wilfull lying that makes us glad to be out of the EU. No empty shelves here and we are making a concious effort to avoid buying any EU goods. No more French wine and German cars. I am sure other countries are consideriung following our lead.

Relay conversion along with the latest generation super-bright halogen bulbs from Phillips or Ring. http://forum.etypeuk.com/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=4919 HID will not fit and would not be legal as they require headlamp washers and self levelling suspension.

Brexit Bonus!

Best news yet about Brexit - the French can no longer pusue British drivers for speeding once they have left the country and it applies to all EU states. Equally, as we want to be fair to our European neighbours, we can't fine them if they find an opportunity to go fast over here. To be clear the Po...

Re: Synthetic and semi synthetic; help please?

Refit the filament H4 bulbs and see if they work as intended. Matter of problem finding step by step. If the Halogen's work OK you know it is an LED problem and wiring is OK.
