    Hi all,

    Quick question - where's the EML on the dash (what gauge and what position)? I've looked all over but can't see one when turning on the ignition. Should one be showing same as the ABS?

    Cheers for that. It's a bit worrying that I don't have an EML light at all; are the dash bulbs prone to going in these cars? If so I'll have a look at it this weekend...
