I am indeed reasonably spanner friendly and know one end of an ODBII reader from the other.. although a little time poor at the moment.
Apart from the issue with "check pedestrian safety" and seemingly dodgy connection to the brake fluid reservoir sensor (posted in the relevant XKR forum but not yet resolved) I need to get a service and would be nice to find some local guys that are knowledgeable and care (and have some diagnostic kit... as I suspect the pedestrian thing might just need a reset.... there has been no impact, not even a fast speed bump)
My recently purchased STR needs a major service & MOT soon. I am keen to use an independent specialist. Any recommendations around north London/Hertfordshire area? Has anyone used Ultimate Cats in Edgware?
