Hehe used my ebay account more times in the last 6months than in the total amount of time I've had the account.  :)

I fitted these to my pre-facelift along with a little red LED strip at the top for the dual-lit RS/ST look, massive upgrade from standard red units in my eyes and relatively straightforward with a bit of re-wiring.

 

STILL haven't got round to writing up the guide, but I promise I will at some stage and I'd be happy to talk anyone through it if they were interested in grabbing these to upgrade their pre-facelift!

 

Think I have pics in my build thread (see sig below for link) rather than clutter your thread with them.

Few more mods turned up today.

 

Rear footwells. After a delay from the U.S where they only sent one instead of two, I now have both so will be fitting these hopefully this weekend. Will be splicing into my Illuminated Scuff Plates.

And this part from eBay, for dual reverse. Pictures on eBay can be so misleading but the part actually fits the bulb holder I have from my old red fog unit so another mod for this weekend.

Wiring all done for dual reverse, spliced into the existing reverse cable on the passenger side just below where I connected the rear parking sensors. Fed the cable through the boot lining down to the drivers side grommet which holds the rear fog light. Only problem is the bulb socket connector I bought on eBay, on closer inspection does not fit properly and thus wont provide the current to the bulb.

So 70% job done. Just need to get the correct socket connector and connect to my DC cable and fingers crossed it should work. Weather and airport runs this weekend, meant no time to do rear footwells, so either tomorrow or Tuesday. :(

These are a nice upgrade for the mk2 with some minor wiring as the plugs on the loom differ.

Sweet,
Ive just spotted your earlier post about fitting to mk2 mate,
Sorry to have rewritten the info, I didn't see that you had already addressed it.

So managed to source another part for dual reverse, excitedly waiting for it on Saturday and it doesn't turn up. Phoned supplier today, only to be told they delivered it to a different customers address.  :angry:

 

The other customer has kindly offered to forward it to my address, so probably won't arrive till next week due to xmas.

Beginning to think dual reverse is more trouble than its worth, due to all the hassle I've had sourcing the parts, but I've done all the wiring so I'll be patient a little longer.

Swapped my sidelights for these LEDs: http://www.ebay.co.u...=item41625dddce,
 
and managed to break the housing on one, so need to see if I can find a replacement on ebay. That's all the mods for this month.
 
More next month ;)

What is that black round button on right of rear heated screen button?

Hey Yunni, that black switch is the on/off button for a subwoofer, the previous owner had installed. I've disconnected the cables behind the switch now, since I don't use a sub and never will. Will replace it with a blank faceplate at some point.

Got some more carbon wrap for xmas, so finally decided to finish wrapping. Quite happy with the results, and I like the blue. It's different and matches the interior colour scheme.
