  1. So I had a better look at my headlights tonight. It turned out it was some pi$$ head wbk had altered the horizontal alignment too far to the left. I managed to lodge a bit for my screwdriver in the socket and move it back to the same point as driver side. I'm sure it's not spose to be the same as driver side but it's a start. I'll get it looked at by a garage during the week. Driver side: Passenger side: I also changed out a flickering side light bulb. Those CEUK ones are just clean awful. Terrible life on them. In saying that, I've swapped them for other 501 bulbs that came in the set. I think they were labeled for the boot lights or courtesy lights: Here it is on the right with normal crappy bulb on the left: I think it's actually brighter and more blue than the other one. Definitely brighter:
  2. Apparently the MK3 headlights are a clean nightmare to take apart thanks to the permaseal. If I had a spare set maybe, I'd prob just dremel them open with a thin circular cutter. Other than that I'll just have to get my hand in there and 'forcfully persuade' the bigger back I to position. Sent from my HTC 10 using Tapatalk
  3. I'd have to heat it in the oven or cut it open. Don't fancy that tbh :| Sent from my HTC 10 using Tapatalk
  4. Was thinking of maybe getting an aftermarket set of headlight like these: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/131102583459 Sent from my HTC 10 using Tapatalk
  5. I think that's supposed to be the normal kick you get in the bulbs: \__ \__ = that sorta thing But because the left headlight is stuck inside, it can only move so much, meaning the driver side is always pointing lower no matter what setting I have the height switches too. It's definitely off centre because at night I see far too much light on the left side and not enough on the driver side. I'll have to fix the inner bezel first then go for alignment. I swear, ive spent so much money on alignment, no one can seem to get it right. Sent from my HTC 10 using Tapatalk
  6. I still can't help but think that my headlights are horizontally aligned too far to the left: I know that the passenger headlight is messed up anyway but now I'm thinking both have been adjusted too much to the left.
  7. Lol thanks. Yea I'm seriously enjoying the car right now. Looks and sounds great. I've had the cap on the air filter for a while now but took it off there at lunch. Lovely induction sound. Yep that's the osram hyper blues. I don't really notice the blue glare until I stand far enough back or, like in that image, stand sorta down low. But it does look kinda cool.

  8. Thanks friend. Aye I'm actually happy with how low it sits on the rear, it's just the front that sits higher, if I could get that down to the same level I'd be well chuffed. I'll have a look later. I'm pretty sure there's two yellow adjusters on the back of my headlight. Usually it is just the up down that gets adjusted but I have a feeling the last garage to do mine ballsed it up. The silver bezel has actually moved and somehow ended up on top of the black trim inside the headlight. See here: I tried pulling it back into place but it wasn't for moving.

  9. Good job there. What will you use to stick them on ? Sent from my HTC 10 using Tapatalk
  10. Sweet. Should look good after those are fitted. Where'd you get the bonnet vents ? Do you have a link ? Sent from my HTC 10 using Tapatalk
  11. Got the car washed today and the sidelight fixed. Still have to sort out my headlight. It's point away over to the left. Is there a horizontal adjustment on the headlights ? Some pics: My wee helper: Inside all wiped too: Happy days [emoji6] Sent from my HTC 10 using Tapatalk
  12. Yes I understand all of that. I'm only talking going about inch lower porbably so not too far from what I have now. I'd love to see what 19s would look like with the springs I have now. I know the tyre has to match to keep the overall diameter but it may give the illusion of the gap being lesser. As it stand now though with the spacers it looks excellent so I'm not pushed to change anything really. Sent from my HTC 10 using Tapatalk
  13. I'm not talking about going stupid low, I just want the arch gap more or less absent. I like the look of the top of the tyre nearly touching the arch. On another note. I'll be needing some new wheel nuts at some point. Those stupid caps that Ford put on their nuts are far too easily chewed up. I have 3/4 on there now that have no caps. Usually a 19mm socket will take the nuts off but having no caps on there means I have to keep an 18mm there too just in case. As well as the locking socket.
  14. I'm already on H&R 35mm. Not low enough for me. Still getting arch gap. It's coilovers or go 19 alloys. That looks great . Sent from my HTC 10 using Tapatalk
