simple really competition lets be honest these bulbs cost pennies to make osrams when they werent popular were a lot cheaper than they are now.all i can say is they last and have as good a light as l.e.d sidelights no yellow to them at all.

look at pia lights extortionately priced yet when tested cheap chinese bulbs were better that says it all


Arthur how does the combined high/low beam H4 work out? Only know about H1 and H7

Looks very sporty on the rear mate,
the removal of the ghia badge would finish it off nice. and im looking foward to seeing the results on the new cree reverse bulb with the aditional smds on the sides.

id love to do all of those jobs for you mate, very rewarding.
if you have any petrol in that jerry can you have in the boot of the focus, then get an old sock and soak the sock in petrol then wipe the foam of the ghia badge,
petrol disolves polystirene and foam so it will remove your badges easy.
then wash the area with some water. to prevent it from being flamable.

Looking great mate, very nice transformation. Just curious, did the insurance go up much on declaration?

Wonder how well your bulbs go, iv ordered them sidelights too, fingers crossed they flow with my MTechs.

Like said above, debadge and then its nearly spot on. Did you get all parts from eBay i presume?

Looks good. But you can't have the ST rear bumper and spoiler without the front bumper and grill!

Might as well go "full replica" now :P.

As you can see ended up hack sawing it off cause we was working on that one bolt for over an hour but it just would not come off. Did a bit of a make shift job so that side of the bumper is holding on tight so I just gotta get down hardware store for a new bolt.
