    If you have vcds, then it tells you within the popup coding helper, what is represented with specific coding.

    Chris, come on lad, you should have that sorted by now.

    Well if you had levelling it would be module 55, but you also need to go into 09 to code the headlights to the car.

    I thought it has to have washer jets and possibly levelling.

    Nigel still ain't sorted my xenons. Too busy at work. Is there anyone in or near Leicester that you can recommend?

    So as an mot tester, you've passed your car for mot illegally, thats a question, not an accusation.
