I wanted to share another tech tid bit , On The VW TDI Diesel , there are a few Ground point that needed to be addressed ,what would happen is that corrosion would build up on these points and cause all sorts or weird electrical issues , the fix was to clean and spray with contact protector as you would put on a battery terminal, I saw in the engine bay you could see the ground point and I treated them so no corrosion will occur , I wanted to share this tech point as its very easy to do and really can save you head aches down the road ,treat your battery terminals as well .
This will not void any warranty , its one of those preventative things , Look at any boat, all the electrical is treated not to corrode. If any one has questions please chime in .

Even better than a spray would be to use dielectric grease because it would protect better and for way longer and you would know the entire ground is covered.

So basically you guys have never been in a Porsche or even an MG . so sad life begins when you experience the thrill of an ordinary joy ride ..

And here I thought this thread was about PM 's

No matter what, check all the grounds you find and make sure they are tight. When replacing my Battery I found the ground wire from the battery to next to the headlight loose(both ends). Checked the rest I could see and all were tight.

Ahh as a matter of fact I owned or I should say it owned me a MG and it was a money pit even with me doing all the work on it. It was a thrill when it ran but that was rare. I was left to walking to work more often then not when I owned it.
