Law On Driving With A Headlight Out?

12 July 2014 - 09:24 PM

Hi all recently noticed I have a headlight out drivers side dipped beam. Few questions...

1. What is the law on driving with it out? I've been pulled a few time in the past and just got told to get it fixed but if I get pulled again it could be a fine¿

2. It keeps happening!! The drivers side dipped is constantly blowing every 1-2 months what could be causing this?

3. I was working for a well know pizza delivery company at the time so read the insurance / car check list sheet and it states a few things that have to be working on the vehicle for it to be insured. One of these was headlight in working order, when I saw this I went to my manager and said I had a headlight out to whcih she said "well you'll have to get it fixed tommorow"

I brought her up on the sheet and said I'm not insured to drive with a headlight out but she was not bothered and I had to argue with her to be cashed up so I could leave!

Last ones more of a rant but this needs to be taken up with someone and the franchisee is useless. Just think when you order pizza that car may be uninsured.

Apologies for the length haha.

Opinions Por Favor

Hey all,


I have been spraying my engine cover similer to what Lenny has done.


I would like an opinion on what colour to do the lines on the left hand side.


A mate said it would look good with the lines filled black but im in two minds :wacko:  I though of maybe doing it the same blue as the ford infil?

Anyone know if you can get the paint in a small pot? I've looked around and can only find it as spray paint.

I'm trying to touch up the engine cover as I've attempt to do the same as Lenny has done in his build thread but the letters have been a ballache as I don't have a Dremel.

Mpg And Performace With Egr Blank Fitted

04 July 2014 - 09:59 AM

Hello all,


As the "should I blank my EGR" question is posted quite a lot I thought I’d share my experience.


I have had my EGR blank on now for 3-4 months, bought it from EBay for around £4.


I was worried at first that it would cause problems and through up an EML but so far I have only positive things to say about it.


I have the 1.8 TDCI and before the blank I would pull out onto roundabouts in first and have no power until the turbo kicked in after a few seconds, this is not what you want if you on a busy roundabout. I was also getting around 45-47MPG which I don’t think is too bad.


Since fitting the EGR blank the car is more lively, no turbo lag and just more fun to drive. The Turbo kicks in almost instantly and its easier to follow through the gears whilst booting it. As for MPG I’m currently sitting on 52.8 and my driving style is the same, I work for Dominoes on the side delivering pizza and its still gone up!


The only small thing I have seen is a bit of oil around the EGR but its minimal and hardly noticeable (still passed mot with oil there).


All in all I would recommend taking the plunge, £4 can make a difference.
