  1. Help: Let off the brakes and the dash lit up?

    Newbie Discussions
    Hey guys. Was sitting at a stoplight and as soon as I let off the brakes to take off, all these lights lit up. I stopped again at the next light and they all went off. I can’t replicate it. Anyone ever seen this? Something I should be worried about? Thanks!

  11. Brake force distribution

    Misc. Technical Discussion
    Hey, in my country it is mandatory by law that you make an annual technical inspection by a third party (not the dealer). I did mine today and in the observations section they wrote: Unbalanced brake force. Rear brakes force is between 15 and 20%. (So front brakes takes 80 to 85%). I made a...
