Really healthy and tight hydraulic system should extinguish the warning lamp(s) in 30 seconds, unless the car has sat for an age.
yes

Mine goes off after just a few seconds, even if it's sitting on its arse like an old Citroen after being left idle for two or three weeks.

Here are the pictures. Sorry for the poor quality as the pictures are not mine. As you can see the on dash tv! Yikes.

Thanks also for the tips on the braking system. I will try them when i am with the car next.

One thing if someone can clarify. I thought the mirrors were updated to all 1994 models onwards. This is is advertised as a 1996 car but with the old mirrors (its a Japanese import). Anyone know when the mirrors were updated?

It certainly looks like a 96 model year. It has the correct bumpers for that year and the other item that confirms this is the centre armrest, earlier cars had individual ones on each of the front seats. It may well be something to do with the original market it was exported to but if it was a UK car it would have the later mirrors.

Weird. Centre console shift, but pre-1996 mirrors. Nice car anyway.

Regarding testing the accumulators - there's a video of the test on Facebook. Search for EverythingRollsRoyce.

So, Royale Detailing, did you buy the Turbo R, or 'invest' elsewhere?

No haven't pulled the trigger on the Bentley yet. I bought the wife a 911 C4S, and we are in the process of buying a house. Hoping to get a Bentley Arnage before April now. Fingers crossed!

Sometimes that can be an indicator of something amiss, at least on SY series cars. My old '77 SSII would extinguish the brake pressure lamps almost immediately as well and it turned out I had a problem with one of the accumulator valves.
