    How old is the oil/how many miles has the car done. The light is an oil pressure light - if i am thinking of the right one - so its indicating low pressure at low revs which is when the oil pressure is at its lowest. May need a thicker oil/oil change or could be the start of the sensor failing/oil pump problem.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Think you might have found the problem Sig!

    Did you have one of those 'Ah ha' moments when you read about the caliper change?


    Snowman, you got your ears on?

    Yeah I did! Although i am prepared to be wrong

    Also, check for a leak on the caliper you have been playing with, you might be loosing fluid.
