Need a few answers please.

Firstly I've got 18 inch wheels and I'm not sure of the tire pressures. The label by the drivers door says I need pressures of 27kpa front and 25kpa rear. Is kpa equivalent to psi? And surely 27/25 pressures are too low.

And for those with led headlights do the little lower fog lights come on with the dipped beam. I'm getting no light from my foglamps/parking/cornering light assembly (getting foglight error msge) and I need to know what is required when I take it back to the dealer today.

Cheers

it should say 270kpa which is 38 psi & 250kpa which is 36 psi. they do run pretty high compared to other cars.

with the lights yes the non-foglight portion of the sidelight assembly should be on when your dipped beam is on. if the headlights are on auto & just the DRLs are on the sidelight should be off

Thanks Hat much appreciated. I'd never even heard of kpa before just bar/psi. And yes those pressures are high. Previously had a honda civic diesel and even with the heavy engine the max pressure on that was 33 psi for the front.

And its surprising how little the staff in the dealership know. They told me the small lower lights were only foglights. Yet I know they are foglights, parking lights and cornering lights all rolled into one.
