    I have a"noise" coming from the RHS , i think its the top bearing mounts, or the spring isnt seated right, doesnt do it all the time and especially when i say to her right listen I have been offered to have these fixed(thanks Mark) but i just dont have the time with work commit now

    I have 6k HID's also , but i was told last night that as long as the beam pattern wasnt out it should be ok, i dont have levelers or washers so thats where am sceptical

    Other than that i hope everything is fine

    hmm, yeah i have HID's with washers, but not levelers. Im thinking of putting my old headlightunits in for mot. I also have a 'noise' i think... its the pads moving slightly in the callipers.

    I saw a post saying someone got an advisory for non standard exhaust fitted??

    Mine's got HIDS with headlight washers fitted now. Not due for an MOT in October, but get it done at the little village garage so I'll take it down as is and if he says he's going to fail it on them, I'll just tell him I'll be back in half hour with different headlights fitted and ask him if it's worth us both wasting our time on it or not. Nothing they can do about it, they can't stop you changing your lights for the test and changing them again afterwards, they have to pass or fail what's presented to them.

    Good luck with yours Paul, let us know how you get on.

    Is the noise at low speed when you move the steering wheel,.. and also a slight out of balance feeling at 50-60mph plus?...
