Ah...alas I'm screwed. I just put it in to reset it, and it's telling me it will not reset because the map was not properly removed from my previous Fiesta. Also confirmed through superchips who will not now reset.

Why would it have to go back to superchips to be reset? Superchips can just do it their end, you plug it into your laptop and it's reset after running the mybluefin software?

If they charged you to do this within a year you've been ripped off mate the reset is free.

Jesus there's a lot of bull !Removed! in is thread...

HID lights are not dangerous just because they are HID's, let's get that straight out of the way. The way they are fitted,and what type of headlamp they are fitted to makes them dangerous....

Correctly fitted and aligned HID's in projector housings are absolutely fine. The only difference to factory xenon headlamps (which HID's are but cheaper) are the addition of a level sensor and headlamp washers. The sensor keeps the lights pointing where they should and the washer keeps the beam pattern from going all over the place.

The problem is this. Far too many bell end chavs fit HID lights to reflector housings. The beam pattern is scattered all over the place and is blinding to oncoming vehicles. This instantly puts HID's into the 'dangerous' bracket which is actually unjust.

No, technically they are not legal. Yes there may be an MoT issue (but let's be fair this has been punting around for ages so I'd not worry too much) but ultimately if they are fitted to projector housings and aligned properly there should not be an issue.

I love xenon lights on the cars I've had before, and I'd have them on every car if I could as the light output is much better.
