There are some A holes on the roads generally 2002-2004 Audi S4 replica's or Volvo drivers,
Im generally OK on the roads I keep to myself and don't hg the fast lane,
If I become harrased by other drivers I don't retaliate but Vicki would throw uk the fingers followed swiftly by some verbal abuse lol

Cue fairydust stickers :D

:o Nnnnnnnoooooooooo!!!

Hi lenny these ar the ones I'm on about

Hi mate,
I don't have access to those clips because I've fitted a tripleRcomposites splitter on to the front lip,
I can't physically remove the clips, the splitter is pop rivet to the lip

The two outer clips are in your bumper already,
The only one extra is the middle one, and it comes with the front lip from ford.

The adhesive is seperate but not sold along with the clips

Rivet would be better and a stronger hold mate,
If you fit a TripleRcomposites front splitter on to the zetecS front lip;
The centre spine of the splitter has a hole in the centre of it... that hole lines up with the centre hole on the Zs front lip.
The Zs plastic clip gets removed,
Anda stainless steel M6 lock nut and bolt replace it,
The bolt goes through the splitter, lip and bumper gripping it all together.
This design of fitting also ensures the splitter is perfectly centre on the car because it has a centre spine that fits the centre slot set there by ford design.
So a metal rivet or fit a tripplercomposites front splitter

I like the look of the cool blue intense. It's subtle enough not to attract the wrong kind of attention and doesn't seem to be the type to blind other drivers. I particularly do not appreciate dipped lights that are aftermarket but which totally blind you if you are driving on the other side. 

Looking forward to the night shots.

Nice Lenny, so would you recommend the cool blue intense as a road legal white/xenon look replacement for dipped bulbs. They certainly look good. I like my philips diamond vision, but obviously not road legal and would definitely fail an MOT. And having to take them out before any servicing/mot etc is just plain annoying

 

Also the cree H11 fogs, do you have any links for the ones you bought, as I got these ones http://www.ebay.co.u...984.m1439.l2649 thinking they were from a UK supplier, only to find they came from China and the drivers side one has blown after less than 24hours.

 

I'm tempted to just get some of these halogen bulbs for a white look http://www.ebay.co.u...=item19bea28fb1

I had osram cool blue for about a year, i replaced them with the Philips blues when they blew

IMO id go for the osrams, they're the whitest light when you're driving, but have a bluer look when you look at them :)
