I've gone with HID's for main and dipped beams and fog's, I got a deal so was like why not :P


So is that 3 sets of ballasts you've had to secure in the engine bay? H7 for dipped and what for the main and fogs? LED Sidelights too?

do you have any problems when you use you main beams to flash other drivers rather than turning them on to use for a long period of time. Some people have said that they could blow or surely they wouldnt have time to "heat" up when you first try and flash another driver?

Did you say HID in the main and fogs...

 

Just curious as the dipped beam is projector already, but the others are not!  Are you replacing the reflector lens in the main beam to a projector lens with the HID kit?

Just replacing the sidelights with LED's and putting LED's in the side mirror repeaters...  Due to the angle or the bulb holder in the mirror repeaters i chose the 360 light, looks good.

Can you explain your process? If you got the st style pack you would have got that colour calipers, brake discs and illuminated scuff plates.

Replace them? I think not! It's the yobbo-mobile for a reason... to be annoying and such.

 

It doesn't really get much road use, so it's all good because on the track anything goes :P I'll probably be pulling them off though, they'll probably be more of an annoyance to myself rather than anyone else - the dipped beams will stay, even with the legality issues.

Style pack is not an option is South Africa.

 

Basically sanded the rims down to remove the gloss clear coat. After that, a good degrease and clean with laquer thinners. Two coats of primer, and then masking and applying the colors. When all was dry, two coats of clear laquer.

Nope, but tomorrow I'll find out because I'm putting my gloss black ones back in, which are sat in the old broken bumper and luckily aren't damaged.

Any joy with swapping out the matte grille's for your gloss black ones? how easy was it to do? is it easy to take them out with a bumper thats still attached to the car?  :P
