    Just like main beam won't stay on unless the switch is turned to on.

    Could be wrong, like.

    Just sounds like they're trying to park at ignition on, which is what I would have thought they'd do even with the headlights off

    Honestly haven't a clue tbh with p2 settings, on the old t5s the wipers just work regardless if the lights are on or not but will be trying it with the lights on.
    Then failing that I will be doing Lee's method

    I'm sure the P1s only work with the lights on, the 850s probably have bits of string you have to pull on to make them work.

    It's the string that makes them 100kg's lighter hence so much faster

    Lighter but less aerodynamic, so no faster.

    I can confirm that the wipers do work when your lights are off!

    Like I said, they are not software dependent.

    It's incredible how a refurbed set of wheels, done properly, can totally transform a car. Adds value too!

    Good job!

    I have 17s too and like how they feel and ride.
    Personally, while the 18s looks nice, I would not dare to use those on the Irish roads....
