I never went through with it and the fogs still sit in my shed, i painted then and went to cut the bumper using the templates provided so they would fit but i wimped out and never did it. Tbh you can get a fairly decent bumper from a scrap yard with the fogs all for under a couple of hundred then the wiring and switch but dont really need fogs so gave in lol

They're really easy to fit, look good too. Down to personal preference. If you decide to give them a go don't hesitate to ask me anything.

Supposedly, if you look around there's plenty of discussions on them. But down to personal choice. I've never had any problems and neither has anyone I know of, Aslong as you've got projector headlights not reflector and stick to 6000k you'd be fine.

How long did you leave the callipers to dry? Going to attempt mine soon I'll pop to halfrauds think they have that heat proof paint.

Why the weather wasn't too bad and had some time on my hands, after giving it some thrashing last night at the meet so had brake dust galore on my wheels. Thought I'd treat the wheels to a good proper wash and a few coats of poor boys sealant to repel future dust :)

Also thought I might aswell give the calipers a fresh topcoat while I had the wheels off.

Looks great mate, not sure what colour to go with for the calipers.... have been playing with the idea of gold im thinking it would go well against the darker blue

Also poorboys is a decent wheel sealer but i'd recommend optiseal as a better option, Dead easy to apply just spray on and wipe off last for ages as you only need a thin coating (works on bodywork aswell)

Thanks guys :) and yeh gold could work, think red or yellow would look good too though ? Depends if you want subtle or noticeable.

Thanks for the link, il give that a try :) especially if it works on the paintwork aswell.

Hahaa will still look good though with the subtle look :) I just fancied a nice red caliper to match the red "s" badges and my red dustcaps ;) little things make such a difference.
