Just wanted to post a couple of small mods off my list of bits and pieces.

I decided to get around to changing my side indicators for smoked LED ones, a bit of a tight fit but i think they look cracking.

Also i went for Carbon Fibre effect steering wheel inserts- (the silver S is my little touch as after all my car is the Sport version)

Lol I know mate just winding you up cause I know you've had em a few months :P

Your steering wheel inserts look like they've just been carbon wrapped by the seller, are they?

I do like the smoked repeaters too, wanted to do it myself but as you know I'm installing wing mirror repeaters at some point so not much point doing smoked till then.

Lights are all in sync.

The inserts are not wrapped, they're solid plastic with a textured carbon detail on them.

You'd think they were carbon if you didn't look at the back of them and see the injection mould blobs.

You'll find that when you remove the old ones you're likely to snap lugs off them.

New ones need to shimmy under the airbag cover, be warned you will probably sound the horn a few times so be prepared to annoy some people. ;)

I made a few scrotes jump a bit so good result all round. :P

How did you remove the bottom of the three inserts from the steering wheel? Interested in doing the same mod, had a quick 2 second look at them and the side 2 seem to pull right off but the lower one wraps all the way around?

The bottom one is two parts.

Pop the rear bit off and the front one just comes off with a bit of flexing.

Be aware that the rear bit has a plastic tube coming out of it to clip into the front bit.

A wide bladed screwdriver with the tip taped over is a good tool to have handy.

Next phase done at long last, finally got my footwell lights fitted.

I've only got some weedy white LED in at the moment as i forgot i used my decent blue ones in my courtesy lights.

I'll pop on some photos later when it's dark and update when i get some decent blue ones fitted.

Not decided yet, i'll have a scout around later.

Any suggestions as to nice bright ones?

For 2quid these serve the purpose quite well inho

They what I got in in the photo's before I installed the ignition barrel so if you go by them they spread the light quite well

Replaced them with these

Waited a literally month for them to come from china, the delivery was actually that long. Only to find that because there's so many more LEDs, they half the size of the LEDs on the 5smd and less powerful, which I could tell from the photo but still, considering they got 23 extra lights on them I've noticed no difference in light in the front footwells and really wasn't worth the wait.

just saying for how long i waited for the 28smds to come from china cause i couldn't find a uk seller of the blue ones anywhere, just white ones, wish i'd of just kept the 5smds in cause they just as bright n spread it the same.

so for 2quid the 2 n a few days wait instead of a months wait you can't go wrong ;)
