    took the bike out for a spin as the weather was very nice got back and noticed a spot of oil on the engine casing under further inspection the sum guard had about 4 tablespoons of very freash oil which appears to be coming from a seal towards the rear of the engine so bmw rang van turned up took bike away and waiting for a answer as we speak to see what the ther deal is.

    got 3 weeks and home and have never been so pi**ed off

    just hope bwm sort it out quickly

    he approached a y junction and came to a stop to wait for the traffic to clear
    he is not moving - just waiting
    with that a 76 year old OAP came down the road in a silver VW golf turned into the road on the leg of the y
    ON THE WRONG ****IN SIDE OFF THE ROAD
    and hit him head on
    SHE ****IN KILLED HIM
    she said she didnt see him
    Les fitted my lights 2 x 50w and 2 x 35w in the spots over a year ago - i ride with the dipped and 2 spots on all the time and this combo has saved my life so many times
    PLEASE everyone do somthing that will make you stand out from the rest
    you really do not stand out very much with those standard lights - you just sometimes at a quick glance look like the
    right or left side of a car with its lights on
    most people i know always say how bright or how good my lights are and how they always know its me cos my lights are so bright / different
    which as you may have gathered is completly the opposite to what that OAP told the police
    your life is worth a million times more than these lights - get them and if you are unsure how to fit them i am sure Les will do it or help
    Take care

    Just come across this post whilst looking for some HID's. Was it dark? Did his lights need to be on?

    Have a google for active light camofluage or diffused light camoflauge. Having your lights on, or even brighter isn't always the best way.

    Anyway, back to these HID's, good are they? I might get myself some.

    I'll recommend them. The difference is huge. Here in Denmark we drive with light on all day (by law) and I have noticed that with my new HID I get more respect from cardrivers.

    I just looked on GSUK’er for Les’ details, as I need to pass them on- I read the post about the OAP killing someone. I can stress this strongly enough- my endorsement of a Wassell HID50 dipped headlight. I’ve had my light since January- it took an hour to fit. I have never had so much value out of an accessory, and believe me; I’ve fitted some crap to my bikes over the years! The difference it makes is fantastic- you will piss off other drivers, bikes as well as cars- you will full their car with white light when you are behind them- they will go for their dipped mirror, some will not even realise they have a dipped mirror and just shade it with their hands- the light will not blind motorists coming towards you- it may make them occasionally flash you, but that’s no more than when BMW cars started fitting HID lamps.
    I do 100 miles a day return on the M20- if you make this trip, you will see me- guaranteed! One 50 watt HID kit- no more- Sorry mate, I didn’t see you’- DONE

    mark-up

    The ballasts are a bit chunkier, but if the space is there fitting them's no prob.

    Maybe cos there's no British price mark-up.....?

    I'd have a good look at that seller's feedback rating - 99.1%. You can use http://www.toolhaus.org/ to show just the negative feedback. They have lots...

    Feedback is certainly summat to take into consideration when buying anything through ebay, but as the seller has nearly 9000 sales (not all lighting) the feedback looks good enough for me.

    Here's a cut and paste of his ratings:-

    Recent Feedback Ratings (last 12 months)

    1 month 6 months 12 months

    Positive 1095 3962 8270
    Neutral 5 25 55
    Negative 12 42 69

    Maybe so, but most of the seller's recent feedback concerns lighting products, and the problems reported by dissatisfied customers are enough for me to go somewhere else.

    I know ebay is far from perfect, but experience has shown me that if the seller's feedback is anything other than 100%, I should look elsewhere. I will be upgrading to HIDs at some point, but I'll be buying from a seller whose feedback on this site is well proven.

    YMMV, of course!
