    Yes, nice one Bainie, that should help a number of people out.

    I'll also be adding a more technical section on Common Faults that will delve into a number of those problems, and more, in more technical depth. Watch out for that.

    I must be lucky, had none of the faults listed; having said that mine is an ex Vx fleet demonstrator, so must have all been sorted by Vx in the 8 months they had it before me.
