    Not a lot to report on recently, had the dreaded "safeguard check" appear which with a trip to e fellow VXR owner with T2 shows the boot switch is throwing the bcm into a tizzy so ill investigate in due course. had a new battery fitted and interior bulbs as halfords had these new ultra bright 501's in so gave them a try, they're actually really good nice and white

    Did the gearbox oil. Easy job, tbh I can feel little difference it wasn't bad before and the oil that came out wasnt as bad as I thought so I recon its been done before

    What 501 bulbs were they mate, are they led's. I'm after some new side light and number plate lights but don't want the normal canbus hassles with error messages and flickering.

    Im led to believe only 150 were made in the colour, some others say 138.

    Either way it isn't many!

    Taken the decision to put the car for sale , Im doing more miles now and I think that a diesel is going to be needed. Had a look and more or less set on a E92 330d or 320d. Save a fair bit in fuel even with a 3.0d and the tax!
