Lenny
Hi all,
Couldnt decide what thread to post this on so ive started a new one,
I was going to add it to the CSR light browe thread but since the CSR were an absolute disaster, i decided not to bump that thread any further.

So what ive gotten done,
Is to mask the factory hair line in the lens of the units and colour code the area with first applying plastic primer and then the colour coded paint followed by a laquor,
My local body shop expert done this fine job for me costing 3 weeks waiting time and 20 euro's cash.
Bargin in my eyes.

Thanks mate,
I wasnt expecting to get the inside area done too, was a bonus aswell as the price would cost me that for 1 can of moon dust silver in Halfords.
I marked the line to stop above the indicator myself,
But i regret not going a bit lower to leave it inline with the bonnet opening, but i didnt want to block too much indicator encase of MOT failure.
As it currently is im 100% compliant but if it went lower then im unsure and could be open to question.

Tidy indeed.
It definitely changes the whole flow line of the bonnet.
Looks very BMW now :P
