Oh my bad lol thought you meant custom viper stripes some reason.

Yup I reckon if you contacted DMB they may be able to design you a custom overlay mate made to order. What did you have in mind exactly?

Hi all i as you all no my car is a st replica but i have decided to make it into a facelift st as i came across a good deal. Im swaping my front st bumper with a facelift st bumper with the lower grill just need the upper grill and i brought facelift side panels both panels of ebay £40 as the panels have no indicator on as its facelift model im gona buy some st badges that i can put on the wings. I also brought the facelift headlight with R8 DRL built in light with LED indictor built in cheapest i found on ebay for this light is £329.99 but i was so lucky i just payed £130 for the light of a guy (Private seller) on ebay brand new never used with manual.all i need is a bonnet and wing mirrors with indicator.cant wait i wont do the build till after winter as i need to the parts painted and dont want the winter salt and snow to damage the paintwork. I will upload pic as soon as i recive the parts but here is a pic of the light i brought its the actual light i brought.

Black box is a voltage adaptor for your drls
And the four stick clips fit to the bottom of each headlight to grip the sub frame of the car where the screw goes in the top of the sub frame.
Two plastic clips grip from the bottom too.

Thanks for the reply i had a feeling thats what it was but wanted to double check. I just hope it plug and play im waiting for my mate who got my toolbox then il take the light off and have a look. I have 6000k hid on the car i can use that on the new lights cant i ? i no you meant to have washers and self adjusting lights but i dont have clue how or if you could add those to the car or not.

Connector plug looks the right shape anyway. I think yours being a Titanium spec might have 10pin plugs on the car though. I know mine does and has the wiring for levelling of adaptive projectors or xenons. Should be ok anyway.

Bit off topic here mate, but have you ever looked into the guide for adding an auxiliary 12V socket to the boot? I'm having trouble with mine that nobody else has come across, so was wondering if maybe you'd had a look yet with your car being a Titanium spec like mine. See the link below if you get a chance...

Nah you're ok mate in that case. It's a matter of removing boot trim and stuff so no need unless you were gonna anyway. The trim removal instructions and pics are in the guide I linked to above so only if you ever get bored and take a look!

Seems most people have a 12V live plug already wired in the boot, so use it to put an extra socket back there. But I don't seem to have one so was just wonderin if you're Titanium was the same.
