Thanks,

Lenny- The smooth wiper is kind of semi smooth, not fitted it yet, ordered it from poland, the same company doing all the look alike body kits etc, from what I can gather its 'smoother' than the standard one, will see when its fitted. Want to colour code the washer jets at some point if I get a chance, would have had them done with the car but I was abroard whilst the car was being done and the idiot I am only ordered 1 jet as I thaught it was a pair! So now waiting on the other one at the moment lol

I bought a smooth (mk2.5 type) rear wiper from Poland and they sent me two! How kind, since they charged me for one.

How about mk2.5 rear lights? They look sweet on my Tonic Blue three door.

Thats the wiper blade I have sitting in the garage at the moment, going to fit it today if I get a chance and il post up some pictures.

Dose anyone know if the DMB badge overlays will restick if you heat them up and peel them off? With the respray I also fitted a new rear badge, guess its worth a go.

they deliberately do that with the price, so that they can keep the listing without removing it! saves pennies! plus, if someone enters contractual obligation to buy a £900.00 wiper blade... they are barking mad!

As for the car, it really looks good now! shows how subtle changes make a difference! how much did it cost to get the GB dent out?

He basically charged me an extra £150 on top of what I was originally having done on the car by him anyway, He did say If I was going to get it done seperatly it would have been just under £300.

I cannot tell the difference between your old wiper arm and the new one? is the newer one a bit longer?
