Hi Mate,

382 is the wrong type of bulb as this will give you the wrong pin positions for your bulb holders as 382 pins are direct opposites and the same height.

You will need the pins to be offset and for one of those pins to be slightly higher than the other.....you will need a 782 bulb like this - http://www.ebay.co.u...tm/272007639959

You can still use a 382 type bulb but you will need to fill one of the pins off to make the fit.

This is only for the mk2.5 if you have a mk3 then it's a different software set up.

Either way you would update via the USB port

Thanks mate, yep was easy to cut. I got the stuff for free as my brother in law is a roofing contractor and my neighbour had some spare underlay.

I believe the roof flashing you can get from the likes of Wickes for about £25 for 10 metres

So in a bid to quiten down the road noise coming from the rear of the car I set about adding some sound deadening.

I had a roll of roofing flashing and some laminate underlay about 2-3mm thick to add to the trim when I put it all back.  So all the rear trim panels came off and I set about putting dowm the roofing felt, once that was done I lined the carpet trim with the foam underlay.  Finaly there was enough of the roofing flashing to also do some of the boot floor and under the bonnet.  I intend to get some more of the flashing so that I can cover the wheel well.

I also found a gapping gap between the outer skin and inner skin at the rear by the rear lights area so I stuffed this full of fibre insulation to help further. 


This morning I went on a drive and took some decibel readings and then again after I had finished with the same drive and I have noticed a significant reduction in road noise as well as a 9db lower readings so well chuffed.

Anyway here are some pics of my working progress.....
