Re: Failed again! Rear brake issue...

Sorry to hear this Simon.
Have you tried just driving it to allow brakes to bed in a bit?

Reverse wind Smiths mechanical speedo problem

I think my milometer on my speedo may not be working.
Speedo fine in other regards - any suggestions if this can be fixed at home, or is it a specialist job?

Re: IVA retest...grrrrrrr

Finally passed at Gillingham yesterday.
imho Gillingham is a tough centre to pass at, although my tester yesterday was very decent in the way I was treated.

If anyone is going to Gillingham, pm me - happy to share some of the key niggles they have that aren't a concern at other test stations.

Re: FIA with excellent paint finish

Thanks Peter. The link was taken from the front page of T289R web pages,
The surface finish looks superb, and i very much like the shade of blue.

FIA with excellent paint finish

Have just seen this:

The paint finish looks superb. Not sure who's car this is - is this a standard Sovereign paint finish? is it Guardsman/Viking Blue?

I was under the impression that Spiyda were already producing LED tail lights/indicators and had been for some time. I was told that they did the R&D and manufactured these and added them to their portfolio.
I think what Baz and Peter said is correct.

Re: IVA retest...grrrrrrr

Have you considered complaining to DVSA that this falls below the standards of service you would reasonably expect.
Surely they should try and get you into Mitcham or Southampton at the earliest opportunity.
