    Spongy brake pedal

    Although I have an 8P, bleeding the brakes makes a massive difference. When was the last time that you had your fluid replaced? I dont mean topped up or anything I mean totally replaced? Once you do that and still find a problem, then you can start worrying about your Master Cylinder. For...

    Alarm going off randomly tonight!!!

    Ha it been raining a lot recently? Have you been driving the car in it? Problem ive had and a few other on the 8P is that water gets into the boot microswitch and it sets off the alarm when it "opens".

    LED Side Lights

    is it just a case of swapping the LED with the old bulb? or any tweaking to do? are the higher intensity safe for the car (i.e no battery draining or error codes are gonna occur are they?)
