    im afraid so, the power steering on the Vec demands a lot of power from the battery, hence the slight dip in lights

    Yeh i clocked that a few times, i thought it was due to revving in reverse but i guess as mentioned above, the PS is to blame.

    Unbelievable in this day and age, poor quality and design, they should all have been recalled imo.

    You can usually see them do it when stationary, but the handbook clearly state you should not move the steering wheel whilst stationary

    I have not yet seen the headlamps intensity vary whilst moving
