    SMD & LED sidelights causing problems

    Being bored of the orange glow of my sidelights I decided to try out some LEDs in place of the originals. All was fine until about 5 miles down the road the dash lights went nuts and all the electrical systems failed. This was fixed by putting the old sidelight bulbs back in at the side of the...

    Cruise control button hot...

    Ok, so I've been having a few issues with my cruise control - it seems to have a mind of its own at times, with buttons sporadically changing their function (eg increase speed btn = cruise control off, decrease speed btn = increased speed) and so on... but then sometimes it works fine too! I...

    Evening all Just a quick recommendation for I live in Manchester and always use the reputable Sheldons for tyres, so I got a quote for two Pilot Sport 3s fitted, which came in at £258. With this in mind I also got a quote on which was £233, £25 cheaper... and...

    Clicking on startup 182

    Just gone to head to work and the 182 won't start up. Just checked the dash lights etc and everything goes out that should do, including the immobiliser light. But then when you turn the key all I get is a rapid clicking noise coming from behind the centre console. Had a new battery fitted a...

    Anthracite roof 182

    Just seen this: And although I'm not sure on the colour, it got me thinking... would an anthracite roof look any good on an Arctic 182? (with anthracite turinis) I have had a few beers - and it's just a...

    Steering wheel cruise controls

    Mine are going haywire - every button's doing something it shouldn't be doing... and none of them take the speed down! Anyone experienced this before? Would there be any benefit to replacing the whole cruise control loom in the wheel, is this easy to do?

    Morning all I've done a quick search but can't seem to find anyone with the same problem. My cruise control buttons seem to be going haywire. It started as an intermittent fault, but now is happening all the time. Basically all the buttons seem to be confused and are not doing what they are...

    Fog light change

    Might be a stupid question, but i've never done it... is it easy to change the foglight unit on a 182? My passenger side lens is cracked and i've got a new one on the way. Is it as easy as unclipping it and clipping the new one back in? Cheers, Chris

    iPhone mount

    Evening all Just got hold of my first iPhone and have been looking at in car mounts for it. All I can seem to find is window fixings, which I don't want as aux lead i've got in my head unit won't stretch that far. Similarly vent mounts would probably be too high up. Does anyone know of/have an...

    Milltek owners... alignment?

    Any Milltek owners out there got any tips for getting the tailpipes the square up properly at the back... no matter what I do the right pipe always sticks out about 5mm more than the left, completely doing my head in. Ha, even Fred had a go at it at the last service and still no luck. I don't...

    Odd socks

    Went for a puncture repair on Monday morning – turns out what I thought was a small tack turned out to be a 2 inch long nail in the tyre. It was in the tread, but too close to the outside wall to repair. I needed to get to work and they had no PE2's in, so I opted for the in-stock Pzero. So I'm...

    Warranty Direct

    Just seen an advert for this on TV - anyone got a policy with them? Anyone know where you'd stand on replacement parts that aren't standard, and servicing at a preferred garage (eg BTM), or would you have to use their listed garages? Just got a quick quote and it's £550 for the year, seems...

    'Crunching' noise when steering at low speed

    Evening all Not sure whether it is the cold weather or something is up with the 182. Basically I have noticed that when steering at slow speed, eg parking, there is a crunching noise coming from the front end of the car. It sounds a bit like walking on fresh snow. Noticed this before the...

    Trophy in Castlefiled, Manchester

    Didn't get the reg but definitely took it as a sign to get my 182 sooner rather than later!
