Excellent work done mate, you have gone to great lengths making a very tidy job of everything

 

Cheers Lenny, I fear I have some sort of OCD  :lol:

Very nice, I like how you do everything to make it look as if the car came out with it, thanx for the info about the lights, may I ask what the name was for the HID lights that you purchased, so I don't make the same mistake purchasing a cheap set?

Thanks Jeff, I purchased my HIDs from custom led.co.uk. for the dipped beam, but for the fogs i ended up going for led bulbs from ebay.

+1 Cree bulbs are great for fogs and reverse bulbs, there were some members reported being stung by cheap replica Cree purchased on ebay from china,
Cree are American, trusted supplier of all Cree LED bulbs is alltronix.co.uk
Just thought id share this information regarding Cree led as i dont want to see anyone else getting stung neither,
Norman was lucky purchasing them from ebay 80% chance they could have been duds thankfully not though.

so while I'm waiting on new RCA adapters coming I got my new brakes fitted, focus ST170 300mm upgrade with callipers professionally painted in performance blue

IMG_3597_zps4407c285.jpg
 
look far better than before and once bedded in should be a good improvement on standard. 
 
One issue I have spotted is that the the brake pads extend beyond the discs as shown in this picture

this isn't ideal surely as I will be loosing out on brake performance and once the pads wear it may cause other issues.
