Thanks preew mate, will be blanking off the EGR, wanted to do that today and got lazy with all the sun lol... also will be tinting the windows and installing the fog light DRL's

 

Most importantly the mod i want to focus on firstly are software wise. i want to change what happens when i press the push start button for example, engine goes off but interior lights stay off and radio stays on and have a second method with a long press that turns off radio and engine but also turns on the interior lights like standard.. not sure how well i will get on with this but i got the ODB 2 cable off a mate today.

 

Future mods that await my time: Brake caliper painting, windscreen spray type jets, DRL's and possible lowering depending on money

. by the end of the day the car must be functional.

 

Looking to add a front tow strap and smooth off the stock tow cover. Big plans for mi Julia!

Thanks guys :- )

 

Some members here have slightly different DRL's as there seems to be different makers. anyways i am blown away with the factory look and factory brightness of these light and everything was included in the kit, the quality of the cables and wires are top notch, perfect kit.

This is the exact same one i got from this seller. there will be a £15 customs import tax on it.

Thank you Aaron i like your car too mate it looks sexy.

 

Anyways slight update, i didn't want to hijack ben's thread anymore banging on about my loom. I took Lenny's advice and checked my wing mirror for the loom and i think i have found it! with lenny theory this means i have the titanium full loom.

 

I did snap one of the small clips holding the indicator lens in place ever so slightly trying to pry open the mirror casing it wobbles a little bit but still very well secured so no biggy

 

Here are the cables and connectors going to the mirror the lower cable is for the speaker tweeters and the upper cable goes to the mirror with 6 cables total 3 for the electric motor and 2 for the indicator bulb 1 black i assume some sort of earth

Under the glass of the mirror on the left is the two cables for the bulb, and the right is for the motor

This image shows an extra cable, on the inside of the mirror so lenny was correct! loom for puddle lights, they are glued onto mirror glass back, black earth and black/red switch live that i assume is connected to one of the other cables for the light grey or orange for live

So Lenny are these two cables for puddle lights? i cannot see any other purpose for them and they are glued in place doing nothing

Ha ha ha really? that is so disappointing. Hmm how does heated mirrors work? i don't have any buttons for it only the heated windscreen button, is that the same for activating heated mirrors?

 

I would have thought these cables are too thin to support heated mirrors

Yes heated windscreen also activates heated mirrors,
Small element along the rear of the glass mate you can see the core of the element leading from each cable,
Sorry buddy.
