No, were they Outlander PHEV specific and/or any use?

Re: Eagle Eyes tail lights

I can see the colour when driving it.

As I bought used, I bought on condition, price, availability etc with no consideration of the colour. But again, each to their own as I already said.

Even if you think you're vehicle is at high risk of this, what are you going to do about it? Weld up the fixings? Use 'security' bolts/nuts on an undertray?

Re: Extracting useful data from your OBDII port

It seems to me that you are using what is sold as a CAN converter to interface to a Modbus (talk of registers etc) which is what I ...
