        Only under extreme braking, and yes when you are at a stop if you have just braked.

            Looks like its nothing to worry about then!

            i just fort i mite have broken something!

            finally, when you say heavy braking, does this mean ABS kicking in?...or even if the ABS isnt working?

            Does it say anything about this in the handbook?...Just wondering how you guys knew about it!...lol

            Thanks for everyones replies!

                i had this the other day but thought it must just have been me going mad, was coming home from our lasses during the early hours of the morning and was giving the car some stick, braking quite heavily from speed coming upto a junction i noticed that the brake lights seemed to be flashing behind me as i could see the relection in a road sign.... Thought the cops were on my ***....

                Oh well that's cool then, another little trick with the VXR...

                  Daz, do you know if the ABS or traction control or anything was kicking in?...just trying to understand if the light flashes simply casue your slowing down rapidly or becasue the ABS or something is working!

                    don't know mate..... It might have been..... It might have been cos i was slowing down from high speed or that the ABS was working for a bit? REally not sure though, it was wet and i was motoring along, was yours quite a quick flash?

                      well my mate said that it was kinda like a flickering or the light!

                      now i cant be sure but i dont think the ABS or anything was working...i was jus slowing down as normal from what i recall...altho i was driving a lil faster than normal!

                        i shouldn't worry about it, it might just be when you are slowing down from high speed or a degree of braking it does it, not necessarily when the ABS comes on, i don't think i was braking hard enough for the ABS to kick in....

                            stop racing it about mate, just get them to check whether it is doing it when you are braking from a normal speed.

                            p.s. you say on your sig you have 19" multispokes, are they the upgrade wheels or have you gone for something else?
