IMO LED would look a bit chavy

colour code them would look so much better

Just colour code mate, I agree with ollies led on your washer jets would look cheap, chavy and a bit naff..... In my opinion of course,

If you do add them upload a picture of it then ask people's opinions :-)

Noooooooooooooooo

Don't put LEDs on your lovely car ;)

I colour coded mine. It takes time but well worth it.
You'll need sandpaper, plastic primer, your preferred colour and lacquer / clear coat.

Wise choice Daniel, you have redeemed your self respect and the respect of almost every single FOC member as a sensible ford owner :-)

Highly recommend the mist jets, I wasn't too sure about them when I first fitted them, but now I wouldn't go back to the standard ones.

Upload pics once you colour code them, also you could code your aerial base as well :-)

Aye mate you can paint the mist jets, mines and looks like willy's are mists too. Take your time doing lots of prep.... I sanded my jet housing to give the primer a good key to adhere, build up thin coats of primer sanding lightly with 1200grade wet n dry then same with your colour.... Building up thin layers sanding between coats, then the lacquer. I'm sure I did four coats of everything. Just cos its a tiny piece to paint, don't rush it or it will end up looking crap, and the paint will most likely crack.

At least you saw the error of your ways with the LEDs lol

I painted mine, easy as. Didn't prime them and they've lasted well. I wouldn't recommend skipping the prep though, as they won't last just I have like 5 pairs of the things lying around and about a half hour to do them in :P

Dead easy mate, just unclip the interior courtesy light, then unscrew the aerial base from inside the roof lining using a torx T25 then unplug the cable.

This is for a mk6 but in sure the mk7 will be similar
