Re: Headlights

Hi , I've just replaced my dip bulbs with " osram next generation night breakers laser " the light from them I think is a lot whiter , not as bright as LEDs though.
Might be worth a punt , a pair for just over £21 on eBay

Re: Juddery wipers?

Hi , I saw saw a guy on YouTube clean his juddering blades with a white cloth sprayed with WD40 and rubbed them till no more black came off and used a quality glass cleaner for the glass . He had done this for over twenty years on many cars . I might try this if and when my blades judder.

I don't think I'll be putting any more led bulbs in my car.
I have replaced the dip headlamp bulbs with pair of " osram H7 night breaker laser next generation " bulbs which are a brighter white

Re: Front tyres feathering

Thank you for that answer Colin
The tyres I think are quite bad for the mileage I've done . My driving style hasn't changed and our previous car tyres wore well 23,000 miles or more each set , nearly 190,000 driven.
I'll keep an eye on all tyres and get settings tweaked again if they need it
