    On my M3. A quick and easy solution to those tedious and hard to trace ABS faults and damaged pad warning sensor wiring?

    The P.O. or his "trusted mechanic" has simply removed the relevant bulbs from the line of warning lights at the base of the instrument panel ! One easy step and Hey Presto - now no more problem!

    Needless to say, I shall be working my way through both faults till we sort it out, reinstate the lights and ensure they go out for the right reasons, rather than having been nobbled.

    Always instills confidence that the rest of the car has been treated to a "no expense spared" experience - NOT.

    Yup.

    At least I'm OK on that one, as no air bag with this car. It runs an M-Tec 2 steering wheel, a la E30. Very nice.

    Shame about the P.O.'s FIY though.......

    Always worries me on things like this - in particular airbag bypass sensors!!!!! Especially if you put a child seat in the front - which obviously is best avoided if possible!!

    It's not too clever all round really, but no worries about airbags at least.
