looking GREAT !! 

I wish i had them DRL's .. they look so much better, look alot more standard... put mine to shame! 

 


80 quid all in. Direct from the sellers own website. They are 100 from the same seller on eBay. I will take some pics of the cabling install and post them too. Will need to wait and see if a get a letter making me to pay import duty.

Have something to contribute?

Its just a vinyl decal ollie - same dude on ebay as I got the steering wheel decal from, he can do many sizes and go down to 1cm so got him to do me one for the knob - Think the seller left a bit guilty about charging me £4 for a 1cm decal (although I was happy to pay it) as he sent me 2x 1cm and another one the same size as my steering wheel one, so I have spares incase they fall off.

Fitted a set of ultra power bulbs today, to the headlights main/dipped, still waiting for sidelights/fogs as they are coming from a different supplier, but might actually go for some LED's sides instead

like what you've done so far fella... your car looks the dogs swingers...

I cant remember off the top of my head what bulbs i used, i think they might have been phillips ultimate or something along those lines. They are really bright but abit yellowy still...

I have probably tryed 3 other sets of bulbs some giving off a whiter poor but poor visibilty at night!!

If i can ever get round to it, i'll be adding rear footwell lighting to match the front, tinted windows and hopefully a twin exhaust system.

Did you get round to fitting the rear mudflaps in the end?

Exactly my plans. Not got round to doing the rear flaps yet. As while I have the wheels off I want to paint the drums. Might be the new year yet.
