    Just looked it up - Northern Ireland first MOT at 4 years old (light goods at 3 years), England, Wales and Scotland first MOT at 3 years old.......presumably, this is for political reasons.

    Thanks Paul, live and learn. I had always assumed we were on the same schedule but obviously not. Suppose that means it's totally different over here with government run centres rather than local approved garages. Wonder if there are any definitive reports on the more effective methodology. Must look.

    Took longer than expected to get the control units and arrange to have them fitted but all done last Friday. Worked fine until Saturday morning when the fault reappeared.

    Beginning to suspect I may have bought another lemon, would only be the fourth in a row so at least I'm consistent. (Ok not quite in a row, there was a Leon in the midst that didn't break, wouldn't go, but it didn't break)

    It would appear we are back to the drawing board with this, VX said the control units would fix it but that's not worked out well. So rear level sensor replaced, control units now replaced. Any thoughts on where to go now?? Waiting on the dealer coming back to me with his thoughts on the matter.

    We pretty much narrowed it down to cabling at the rear wheel sensor (nearside). Plastered it all in silicone and thought I had it sorted but after a few weeks issue was back.

    Got rid of the car shortly after that. Partly down to the annoyance of this issue and partly down to getting a great option on a 520d.

    It was a shame, basically ruined a brilliant car for me. Think I'd have another insignia just one without fancy lights....

    Hope you get it sorted.

    Hi supajohnboy,
    I'm having the same problem 14 plate elite, offside light off to the right and down on the floor,
    only seemed to do it in the rain. It doesn't bring up a fault though, here is what I have done
    I changed the setting from intelligent lighting back to corner lighting in the settings, been fine ever since.
    3 weeks ago changed back to intelligent light distribution and hasn't been any bother up to press.
    don't know if there is a fault or it had just lost its marbles. you could try this and see if it works.

    I'm not confident! Thanks for your response. Local auto electrician inspected the wiring yesterday but could not find obvious fault. He suggested taking it to the stealers as they might have a software update but I don't see how that explains the error presenting itself in wet conditions. I've had the car on diagnostics which flagged up a rear sensor but this same code showed itself last October and the sensor was replaced with a new one. I've also noticed condensation in the near front headlight unit so perhaps this is related...

    Thanks for your tips but I'm not aware of my car having the option of switching between intelligent and corner lighting settings.

    Did you read this?

    It covers the best go I had at fixing it. I did track the wiring back to a connector at the rear nearside arch and applied some silicone there too. All lasted for a while but wasn't permanent. If you could find a permanent version I think this would have solved mine.

    That said, I didn't keep it to find out. The beemer hasn't had the same issue

    Hi Again,

    the option should be in your vehicle settings when selecting the options, and is under lighting.
    saying that mine has the nav, if you have the small screen I don't know how you select it.
