I guess all will become clear when I get round to removing a seat. Did you have to bridge the seat circuit with a resistor?

Back from Italy yesterday afternoon , unusual for the weather to improve the closer we got to the the UK . We were on the 08:00 ferry from Dunkirk with probably no more than 10 other cars , so it was pretty much empty of passengers although it was full of trucks . In approx 2,800 miles no oil or water used but plenty of Unleaded! pictures to follow of the MM , thanks Geoff .

Good evening , i took the SWB for an early MOT today and it passed! so have an MOT in place untill 22/06/20 . One item that i knew had changed from last year was that an ABS warning light had to be fitted and working , for those who have retained the Z3 instrument panel there would be no effect but if like me you have replaced the Z3 panel with separate gauges and warning lights it could be something to be aware of , Geoff .

Mine is registered as a 250 California, there are no details available to the MOT tester to say it has airbags so it passes. Could you get away with the same argument for ABS?
Sneaky!

Evening Steve the way it was explained to me was because the car still has ABS fitted then there should be a warning light , whereas there are obviously no air bags installed no warning light is reqd . It would be interesting to hear if others had had similar conversations with their MOT man Geoff .

I wonder if you could get away with a putting the warning lights you don't want to see in the glove box or similar?

The warning lights are there and are lit up when required but just don't ruin the dash aesthetics.

When I was turning my plastic bodied pre-lit Westie into an S2/3 Lotus Seven evocation I hid those warning lights which would otherwise have spoiled the retro look of my dash in the rev counter face, using LEDs. They were very unobtrusive.

Lovely set of wheels, sets it off nicely. Look like my MWS and the same tyre size too, from what I can see. Pure class mate.
