So glad they are on, they look great :) One needs a bit of damage sorted and I need to get a centrecap for one of them, but all in all quite happy with them:

Hi,

Nice job with the car ;)

I don't know if you pay attention to this, but after you changed the wheels, did you noticed any alteration in fuel consumption or ride confort?

Not at all if I'm honest.

How do you find your radio reception now?

I bought one of those aerials months ago but was put off fitting it as I'd heard reports of crap signal.

Quite like the idea of that, although I'm missing the actual centre off one wheel.

Fine mate, no problems at all to be honest.

I want to do the bonnet lip in this carbon fibre wrap so will have a look through the threads this evening, I'm thinking of attempting to wrap something small around the house first as a practice, not too good with this kind of thing :unsure:

It's easy enough to do mate. The lip should definitely be easy enough. Just keep the wrap warm n take your time. Don't rush it.

What else you planning on wrapping with all that lot lol?

I believe yours pretty much pops straight off mate if you put a flat blade screwdriver down the edge or summin. With mine though I have to remove the stereo first. Still an easy job though mate.

4quids a bargain for all that lot. You've seen everything I've wrapped ain't you?

The fascia is easy to remove.

Take out the radio, two screws and pull the fascia out from the top first.

At the bottom there are clips around the heater dials, just keep pulling and they'll come out easily.

The mk2.5 fascia comes off different uncle. You can't/don't remove the stereo first.

Like I said, flat blade screwdriver wrapped in tape down the edge or under the bottom n it'll pop straight off.

Soz. I'm on my phone so can't see his vehicle model.

Yep. 2.5 you start from the hazard light button and work around the fascia with a flat tool.

4 screws to remove the radio if you ever need to.

Do it mate. It's easy enough.

The big roll you got should be plenty enough to do all that plus your bonnet lip n have some left over.

The roll isn't that big, only 127cm x 30cm.

Ah thought it looked quite big. The roll I got was 8 quid and I've still got a fair bit left after doing everything I have.

Fitted the new bulbs, they certainly don't look as white/blue as the MTEC's, but still bright. Will be lining the bulbs up later on in the dark where I can test them properly.
