Totally agree.
Twin clear lenses look more aesthetically pleasing too.


#422243 Only One Reversing Light !

Indeed.
A European clear lens plus a spare bulb holder and the bulb sleeve from your old red lens.
Cut a neat hole in the back of the clear right hand lens and glue the sleeve in place.
I'd recommend using the original sleeve as the point to fit the new reverse bulb and use the new sleeve for the fog bulb (red needed to replace the white light which shone through the red lens).
I say to put the reverse bulb in the original position so as to keep the light pointing directly rearwards.
You will also need to cut a small amount of plastic out from behind the bumper where the lens clips in (clearance for the new bulb sleeve and wires).
Brighter Cree bulbs are also far more useful.-

#421937 What's The Colour.......

Posted by Stoney871 on Yesterday, 06:51 AM

The colour code is the second box up from the bottom left on the plate in the door shut on the drivers side.
You can also get your cars colour name by entering your registration or VIN here-

For finishing paintwork use the finest available (higher the grit number the finer the paper, eg 800 or higher) dipped in water and sanded in straight lines using a cork block.

I got one like this-

4" screen and full HD.
The extra mirror size is useful too as you get a wider view and less blind spots.

You can try the switch self-diagnosis.
Press and hold the rear demister button as you start the car.
After about 10 seconds there should be a tone and your hazards should flash.
Now every time you activate a switch you should get tone/flash.
I'm pretty sure the door switches should do the same.
Repeat the same press/start to deactivate the test.

Unless you can pick up and move a whacking great terraced property I don't think a name change will throw me off target. :P

In truth doing an IAM course gives you no financial benefit at all.
A Pass Plus course gives you a bit of a saving on your first policy after passing but after that you fall back in line with everyone else.

The multi-chip bulbs are pretty good as they fill the whole lens with light rather than the single directed chip that shines brightly but tends to be too much of a beam of strong light in one direction only.
