    Thanks for that Pete; another pointless MOT aspect. Fortunately I bought a toggle switch with a light, which I didnít bother to wire in, but will do so tomorrow...after an early morning blast that is

    No probs. Would have potentially caught me out as well next MOT - it’s not like I drive the 348 around all that often in thick fog and if I ever did the fog light worked anyway. To fail on something that has absolutely no effect on safety would have irked a tad. As it is I need to work out how to replace the bulb behind the switch. My guess is £75 from Ferrari or 75p from Halfords......

    Enjoy the drive

    So little update...

    Came back from service and MOT at DL last week and all good. In addition to the service I had them put some sports cats on and raise the ride height on the front, back to standard as I was bottoming out a few places.

    Only thing to sort before next MOT is the airbag light; now an MOT failure if itís on! So options being a) put the original airbag wheel on, b) stick a resistor in the wiring loom or c) go old school and just take the light bulb out?

    The sports cats donít really effect the noise levels, just takes a little edge of the high pitch bit which is good. With the added bonus itís now all legal!

    Iíve had a few outings now including Salon Dusty and Classic Car Hub. The noise is becoming somewhat addictive and the ride is a lot smoother than the 348. With an added bonus the Boss likes it!

    Next up is getting the dash re-trimmed. You wouldnít believe how hard itís been to find a trimmer!!! And whilst itís out removing several miles of unidentifiable wiring and magic boxes for the stereo etc!

    I used the same trimmer as Terry and he completely re-trimmed my 355 interior and did a fantastic job. Can't recommend him highly enough.
