I was just looking for some suggestion of what sidelights to get, for a while i've had a few pairs of some LED's that i've got from ebay and different shops, which all seem to be the same type etc. They are bright, and have a slight blue/purple tint to them, but they always seem to flicker every now and then or die or a 1 or 2 of the LED's will die. Just looks awkward.
Is there any LED's that you have had that last and are the same with a tint of blue or purple?
Or any bulbs that can match the brightness and colour of these?
Just before I start I saw this somewhere else on here before but can't find it again, and before I go breaking any rules, I'm not affiliated with this company anyway, just thought it was valuable knowledge to share.
Apparently Cars like this are stolen every week, are stripped and sold for parts, pretty hard to trace once the car is dismantled and fitted/sold around.
After watching it, I thought it would be useful for any ST/RS owners who want to upgrade the security on their car. Seems like a good system but at a price, can't speak from experience but it just looks to easy..
Within 2 months of owning this, it's been involved in two accidents already.
The first, nothing major, yet still ******* annoying.
Parked down a street for about half an hour to pick something up from a shop round the corner, come back and I see a massive black mark across the passenger side of my car, found out it was rubber so most of it come off... this was what was left. No witnesses, no cameras.. typical.
I went to a bodyshop about this and he quoted me £220.. I laughed and said bye.
So then, two days ago, on my way to work, some idiot coming out of junction doesn't look left again and pulls out as i'm half way past him, then drives off... tried finding him, no luck. waiting on CCTV footage and a witness to come forward to give me the numberplate, was too annoyed at the time to even think of stuff like this. (I tried finding him for about half an hour).
Funnily enough, it was MK6 Dark blue fiesta, although I doubt he takes much care of his car as any of the forum users. Anyway the damage done..
Got a quote for this from a bodyshop next door to the one above and the front wing/bumper for £340.. much better. Will need to get the alloy looked at aswell but this is a priority.
Have any of you had anything similar and how much did it cost to get it repaired?
Hopefully the culprit can be found and I won't have to pay anyway!
