The door cards will cost you more than the seats!

Post: RE: Dash full of lights and messages

I get similar when the battery is low (MY 2012, 31k miles), the only thing I can suggest is to make sure the battery fully charged or even still holding it charge if it's the original battery.

Sounds exactly the same as mine, but the noise stops when I touch the brake pedal. Was told I needed the discs skimming but as there's only 2mm of useable metal (11mm - 9mm) that's not a good solution...

Post: RE: Exploding/melting HB3 bulbs

I think it depends if the 'exploded' bulb was OEM-spec or a cheap replacement. Cheap bulbs don't last as long, produce less light and have a tendency to go bang.
