    Question Tech2 Sidelights On?

    As per the title really....

    With my car being Star Silver, I like to have my sidelights on all the time. I personally think it makes a huge difference to how visible I am to other road users, whether it's grey and damp, bright sunshine or going dark.

    Firstly, can it be done?

    Second, is there any chance of the brainless monkey at the stealer's managing to screw up my remap if they plug the Tech2 in to alter that 1 setting?

    question 1....hmm.. do they still have daylight running lights settings for the scandanavian markets?..maybe someone from the nordic countries could help?

    Question 2...shouldn't do as they are accessing a different area than where the remap is stored..

    You could always try turning the switch on everytime you get in!! I find that works really well.

    You must have bright sidelights then. If I put mine on in daylight, they can hardly be seen so I don't see how it makes you more visible. Or perhaps you mean dipped headlights?

    Besides that, the colour Star Silver stands out quite well, so I don't see how you think your car is invisible to other road users in daylight.

    Also, DO you really want to people to confuse you for a Volvo driver

    I had my car tech2'd recently and I'm sure one of the options was side lights always on..

    Nope, I mean sidelights. Try Philips Bluevision, they give off a crisp white light that's very much visible.

    Quite the opposite...As I said in the original post, silver becomes invisible in anything less than clear weather. It just blends in to the greyness of the English weather.

    If they can see me well enough not to drive into me, then they can think what they like....
