    Dont worry Dan, just having a laugh. For years a rear wiper was an optional extra and everyone wanted one..then once they were std everyone wants to take it off. If it became an expensive optional extra again everyone would be adding it as an expensive upgrade. always makes me smile. :lmfao:

    Sorry Paddy, just me being a bit over-sensitive I think. I've been a member of a few forums in the past and people got flamed for the slightest thing.

    I know what you mean about rear wipers. I had the same discussion on a Boxster forum but about exhausts. Everyone wants twin tail pipes because the S had them, but if it was the other way round and the non-S models had twin pipes as standard then everyone would be changing to the large single oval.

    Cheap performance MOD - loose some weight :icon_thumright:

    Need to watch the Lamin-x, they might fall foul of the MOT next year if they reduce light output too much.

    Uh-oh, what you heard?

    EDIT: I've just done a search on Google. It might be worth others doing this too. 'Illegal ECU modifications' is mentioned.

    They are planning to tightening things up, things like bust boots on track rod ends/balljoints will fail as opposed to being advised. Towbar electrics being checked, tints on lights, xenons, leak detectors for LPG cars - off the top of my head.

    I think its to start to harmonise with Europe, hopefully not to got to a 4-2-1 system. If it does vehicles will need to fail as opposed to being advised if you know it will be 2 years before tested again.
