I was able to get Sarah into Brecht’s yesterday afternoon, had to drive in hideous conditions to get there, plenty of wrecks off to the sides all the way up I-15. Many people have told me that Xenon bulbs just don’t break but my MINI is special and thats what it turned out to be. Fortunately they had a spare lamp and I was fullly lit (so to speak) in a couple of hours. I’m glad I am still under warranty – the bulb was $190!
Coming back along the 125 that connects 52 to the 8, there was so much rain on the road that I could feel Sarah almost continually aquaplaning/hydroplaning and the DSC light was coming on almost all the time. It was very unpleasant. I think I may need to replace the front two tyres (again, they are new last summer) for better traction.
