    Default My new car.....

    I finally have it parked on my drive. Had the most amazing drive back from Stockport to Derby via Buxton and Ashbourne on the A515. Some great roads as those who know it will testify (and scenery!)

    Can't believe how caked in crud it is already, got stuck behind a big lorry for last ten mins of journey. :-(

    A couple of quick questions.... I noticed the throttle can be quite 'twitchy' almost as if it is assisted in some way, is this normal?

    Also, the car came with a new MOT. When I looked there was an advisory that said 'bulb out light on dashboard on for one of the brake lights but all of the brake lights functioning' and sure enough the 'bulb out' light is on, I've checked every light on the car and there isn't one out, does anyone know how to fix???

    Cheers
    Martin

    Have you checked the lights are level at the back and its not the "lower" side lights you can see on.

    If there all level then i had the same issue and had to buy new bulb holders / as the tracks has a fault in them , was giving a false reading when everything was working fine

    Nice car BTW

    Hi spenny. Take a look at the pic of the rear lights. I've took it at eye level, they look right to me???

    Same when I got mine, I swapped both bulbs for new ones and it solved it.

    Looks smart...

    Brake lights on mine, I think it's when the resistance on the bulb drops when it's about to go pop that freaks the canbus check out (the bit that does the bulb check)

    Vec C's are drive by wire electronic throttles (no physical cable), you get used to it
