A remap is highly recommended.

My 1.8 tdci went from 115bhp to an average of 148bhp.
Very noticeable and makes for a smoother/punchier drive.
The low rev flat spot has been reduced to nothing and the engine sounds happier too.

Have something to contribute?

Lmao I know mate. Am just playing. Sometimes I do wish I'd have got a deisel now though but like I said at the time of buying, all the deisels I looked at seemed to need the turbo replacing so this put me off. Also, deisels I've drove in the past all sounded too much of a tractor for my liking.

You will most likely have to run a cable to the headlight switch as shown in the guide, mine had a wire going to the led circuit but turned out it was dead :(


Haz,do you have any images of that wire? I want to see if mine already has one or not.

I took my light out the other day and found it had two different cables attached to it...

Does it look like I already have the wires? I know they might not be activated, but might be worth a try?

These are the wires which run up my a pillar:

Hi mate, do you mean the led circuit wire? If so then you don't appear to have the one I had. It was attached to the copper pin section next to the socket with two wires going to it. Can be seen in my guide to submarine lighting which pin needs to be connected

You will also need to solder a bridge to the neg feed to complete the circuit once the LEDs are in.

The wire to the headlight switch that I added runs down the drivers side A pillar but the one i had attached already was part of the loom so would have been very hard to trace back.

For more info as said above check out the guide, any questions do ask :)

Hi, yes LED was what I meant. What a pain. Ok, I could run cables like you, but have not had the car long, so don't want to mess things up. Might leave it a bit. Coming from a car that had them built in, I am lost at night lol can't see anything inside of the car.
