Got my car back yesterday. They told me that the problem was caused by a screw which has been driven into the harness (right term?) by the factory. Can you believe this?
Anyway, I was happy to get my car back with regular tires, hard top dismounted, regular tires and no speed limiter - the fun was just about to begin.
But - shit happens. The headlights had been adjustet waaaaaay too low, light ended about only 20m in front of the car (not very funny driving almost blind at night on the highway...) and additionally, all of a sudden the car had a complete shutdown, the machine turned off and I only could let it roll onto the shoulder.
Fortunately I was able to start it again and safely drove home. Now my dangerous beauty sits in the garage and you bet I am not going to touch it any more.
Sent a fax to my dealer that he can have it back immediatly.
Too sad

cu, tg


It sound like you may still have an electrical problem. The headlights have a self leveling circuit that uses two sensors on the right hand side suspension members, front and rear, if the light are pointing down than that systems is not working.
