I had a few warnings come up on my old 5 & they were always spot on.
I even had wording come up when a bulb went, telling me where. Brilliant old car :)

I did this poll out of pure curiosity, as its a very common subject on this site.

I think if you want a cheap improvement then bleed the pipes & put in new fluid. this is supposed to be done every 2 years & its possible that its never been done. it should only cost you a few pounds.
