After a talk with 'Santa' it turns out I'll not be getting a new head unit just yet. Santa managed to get me a new guitar for Christmas instead. Thanks Santa !
One thing I have sorted, as a present to myself, is an ST spoiler. Comes already painted in Panther black too, that should be arriving tomorrow and hopefully fitted Saturday morning providing the staff do on Friday isn't a mental one this year.
Yeah, no problem, I try to put it up today when I come home from work...if I remember correctly, something is actually writen on the spare bulbs that came with the headlights, maybe it's even the type of the bulbs...I definitely have to have a look at them
I know I'm resurrecting a thread from last year here but I just wanted to ask if the rings in the headlights look as white in real life as they do in these pics? From the stock pics on the website it actually looks quite orange but yours look like ice white?
Sweet, thanks for the info Lenny. I'm imagining my install will look like the first pic in your guide. I'm actually ok with how that looks if I'm honest.
I just can't wait to have my dash completed with a nice head unit and matching fascia.
After changing the centre console to the mk2.5 style I couldn't put the new fascia on as I have the square head unit at the minute, the silver carbon effect is lighter on the mk2 than the mk2.5 and is the curved cutout.
Got the lights fitted, a lot easier than I thought. The hardest part was removing and putting back together the trim in the boot. Wiring was simple, match up the colours and pick a black wire for the ground. There's two grounds already present in the MK2 wiring, one for each bulb (break and indicator) but the MK2.5 looms share one earth wire. So it doesn't matter which black you chose to use as the earth wire.
Here's a pic of the way I wired the lights up:

Pic fitted at nighttime:
All in, I think the lights cost me £130 which isn't bad.
£80 for the lights
£32.68 for one of the looms
£20 for the MK2.5 plugs from breakers.
Looking excellent mate,
If you get the time to piece a guide together would surly help alot of others,
An ST spoiler with clear smoked brake light would complete the rear end,
Perhaps pick one up in the new year,
Yea I plan to do that. I'll get part numbers and stuff but I'm surprised how easy it actually was. Can't wait to get them both on and working.
