    How to secure leisure battery

    Does anyone know if there is a plate I can get to secure a lithium battery under the seat? Or is it best to just use a luggage strap and tie down points? I’ve seen the kiravans type ones but they rely on the battery having a ridge at the bottom to fix to.

    Near side LED headlight un-commanded dimming when driving

    Hello T6 Peeps. I've got a 2018 T6 with OEM LED headlights which are amazing, Only issue is the NS light seems to dim every now and then for a second before returning to full brightness. Any ideas? Not a problem for me but could appear like you're flashing your lights at other road users.
