Let me get this right as I have also been contemplating HIDS. I would need to purchase the HID kit like the one in the above eBay link and also purchase a set of projector headlight clusters?

Are they easy to fit? (The HIDS themselves, the cluster is an easy job I know).

Track day 1.6TDCi :lol: CHOPPED กก
What do they use it for..... distributing cones and flags?
The whole reason I bought a VTEC petrol, because the diesel engine mixed with turn lag and heavy body is like an elephant on a tricycle going in to bends and pure out of breath exiting the hair pins.

I disagree! You just need to know how to drive. I have a diesel and despite understanding where you are coming from if you anticipate the corners and get on the power before you would normally need to, you get all the Power you need at the right time to pull you out of the bends. I regularly destroy a lot of my friends on tracks who own similar engined petrol variants. I would imagine the 1.6 may be a little more sluggish than mine.

Ok so reading a few posts on here relating to some of my previous posts has been a real eye opener. I guess I hadn't really thought things through with regards to the insurance and I would never intentionally rip off the government. I have never claimed dole, benefits or whiplash despite being rear ended and being in a small amount of pain.

Anyway, you will all be pleased to know that my car is currently on axle stands and won't me moving until tomorrow and as of midnight, I will be fully covered for my modifications!!! I had to pay out a little to end my current policy early as they refused to insure an intercooler upgrade (by the sounds of things, purely because it wasn't listed in their drop down list). For anyone else thinking of declaring, and having difficulties, try Flux Direct who have sorted me out.

"Stoney" I now welcome you to sit in my rear view mirror, providing you can keep up (on the autobahn of course). Seriously though, thanks for the strong words, I think I needed them.

I haven't told my insurance company about my alloy wheels, my re-map and I won't be telling them about the intercooler I shall be fitting tomorrow. By the same token I won't be telling them about the exhaust getting fitted In the new year without a cat or dpf. If I get involved in an accident my insurance is likely to be void for many reasons other than the dpf. If they want to get you, they will and I bet most of you guys have made a mod which would invalidate your insurance. If you want to do it, do it. And if not don't.

Thanks Lenny!!!

European Parts is exactly the type of company I have been looking for. I have speant endless amounts of time looking for someone who actually does performance parts for Diesel's.

Just a quick one, when you say "ST Pod" do you mean the guages on the dash?

Many thanks for all of your other advice too. I will be sure to add photos as soon as it arrives and more with my progress. My profile picture is of my actual car, taken from the sales advert.

Thanks again!
