When i bought from them it was through ebay, and they were £3 more expensive to buy from through ebay too,

i think it was 5 days for me mate, but im in ireland so i would expect you should recieve by friday, i have delt with the manager before as i told them i was putting this guide on the forum which may help their business and he was sound enough and very professional, so im sure you should have it by friday 1st class post http://www.fordownersclub.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/#EMO_DIR#/cool.gif

May attempt to fit my bulb today if it stays dry , i will also fit the number plate leds , I looked at the number plate fittings and it seems there is no screws but a little groove/clip, will read the handbook one more time to check this.

Lenny I know you had trouble at first reading a post of yours about the plate leds , any tips, I take it I use a flat head screwdriver and push inwards???

cheers :)

I think anythings going to make an improvement over the standard reversing light, its shocking!

Thats very true mate,

i had the car 2 months and had to go back to the garage and buy 2 new reg plate light casings http://www.fordownersclub.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/#EMO_DIR#/laugh.gif

i pushed them the wrong way,

you need to push in towards the light mate,

using a small flat screw driver Push the shiny metal strip

towards the light unit and they drop out, or gently pull,

very simple when you know how lol

Hi mate,

I got them installed yesterday on mine and my dad's focus. I got to say the look great with lots of light to see what's behind me. I think I'll order the other bits and the climate control dials next. :)

HI

Well I think it is , I have privacy glass at rear so its still fairly hard to see any light threw the windows but I would say its a bit better than before , outside the light is much brighter looking in my side mirrors I can see that light shines a fair distance.

Yeah i have the privacy glass too, and find it a pain when reversing at night when there is no other light around, however it makes me use my door mirrors more! lol
