lmfao, brilliant lads, just brilliant! lol...

I am really tempted to upgrade my reverse bulbs also, so I need to dig out the thread and find the links, and add them to my bucket list... I would add them to my wish list, but I am not sure which I will be able to afford first :P lol

hi there
ive been there, having modified a previous car
first thing , ring your insurance company and ask them if they will cover you if you modify the car, some companies wont touch you even if you fit a performance air filter or even better headlights, and if you dont tell them everything it gives them a reason to void your insurance should you ever need to claim

rule of thumb is if it doesnt increase your speed it wont affect your premium, soon as you do anything performance related they may put your premium up, it may be worth it find a insurer that appreciates car clubs and modified cars, like AON and Adrian Flux as they may only be an extra £20-30 rather than £200-300 for some insurance companies

also, keep all your reciepts and a list of everything you have done as they may well ask for in depth details
my car had a list of 70 odd items, when fitted, cost of part and availabilty

just remember its a long slippy slope once you start, as you will always want that next thing

My insurance company wanted to charge an extra £500 a year for window tints - they say because im under 25 :(. In a world of "EQUALITY" I think it stinks, its a totally different story when it comes to racism, sexism etc.
