Just wanted to post a couple of small mods off my list of bits and pieces.
I decided to get around to changing my side indicators for smoked LED ones, a bit of a tight fit but i think they look cracking.

Also i went for Carbon Fibre effect steering wheel inserts- (the silver S is my little touch as after all my car is the Sport version)

I do love LED lights, the immediacy of them flashing on/off really adds a premium look to the car i think!

Really like the carbon fibre on the steering wheel. I've been looking at replacing the entire radio surround, ashtray, and gear surround with carbon fibre.

Thanks lads, glad to see you approve.
Brigante, I keep meaning to get around to fitting the overlays but the weather never seems to be right when I have time.

Your steering wheel inserts look like they've just been carbon wrapped by the seller, are they?

I do like the smoked repeaters too, wanted to do it myself but as you know I'm installing wing mirror repeaters at some point so not much point doing smoked till then.

Lights are all in sync.
The inserts are not wrapped, they're solid plastic with a textured carbon detail on them.
You'd think they were carbon if you didn't look at the back of them and see the injection mould blobs.

You'll find that when you remove the old ones you're likely to snap lugs off them.
New ones need to shimmy under the airbag cover, be warned you will probably sound the horn a few times so be prepared to annoy some people. ;)
I made a few scrotes jump a bit so good result all round. :P
