  1. I'm definitely relieved that I have airbags again! I had been putting off long drives until getting it sorted but with the nature of my job I eventually had to give in and I quickly got used to the fact that the light was there and just tried not to think about the "what ifs" Very dishonest seller I agree but it's all in the past now and I can enjoy some more safe driving!

  2. Easy but time consuming lol. Took me way too long trying numerous 'fixes' before working out that was the issue. As you say, I wish the seller just told me so I could've bought some new pretensioners before fitting, or at least known to swap my original ones over straight away - that's assuming THEY knew! I remember the day before collecting he messaged me asking for an extra tenner or something (can't remember how much I paid now) because he'd just taken another look at them and "they're actually quite decent" and he really "needs" the money [emoji849] so glad I stayed firm and stuck with the original price. So cheeky! Lol Sent from my BLA-L09 using Tapatalk
  3. Been away for so long and nothing very exciting to report! [emoji23] You may all remember my airbag light being on after fitting second hand Zetec S seats... Well turns out they came from a crashed car and I had no idea what the signs were until they were made obvious to me. So I spent the weekend changing pretensioners (and giving her a bath!) Not a great shot but you can see the cables poking out of the pretensioner there. Never been in a crash or seen the aftermath of one so honestly thought it was something to do with seats from a 3dr needing to move further forward in the car than 5drs (due to having one less door) HUGE learning curve for me [emoji23] A comparison of a 'good' and 'bad' makes it clear what was wrong with the ones I acquired! All fitted and ready to go! Took a few months but glad I managed to work the issue out in the end and was able to sort it on my own without too much hassle [emoji1434] and yes, the airbag light has disappeared (hopefully for good) which was the main goal! And a few before/after shots of the clean. Nothing too elaborate, just wanted the winter grime off and to apply my new club sticker [emoji92] Before After Shame I have to work in such a muddy area. My wheels always lose out on wash day [emoji23] Hope to have something more exciting to share soon! Sent from my BLA-L09 using Tapatalk
  4. Loving what you have done so far! Little things as you say, but all make that good bit of difference to the next person's car. Looking forward to seeing what's next [emoji16] Sent from my BLA-L09 using Tapatalk
  5. Yeah I live in Bromley (used to work in Croydon lol) so not too far no [emoji5] Sent from my BLA-L09 using Tapatalk
  6. Hope everyone had an enjoyable, safe Halloween! Here are a couple of spooky edits I did for the cause lol. Taken at Scadbury Park Nature Reserve [emoji317][emoji914] Sent from my BLA-L09 using Tapatalk
  7. Much appreciated! Thank you - I think it's subtle enough and goes nicely with the other gold accents on my car. Relieved it all tied together nicely as it was hard to tell from picture alone whilst they were being made miles away from me. De-tangoing (along with chrome indicator bulbs, yes) was something the pro himself recommended. Now that it's done, I can't imagine what gold and orange would look like [emoji23] Haha completely understandable. As above, I don't think I'd do too well with this myself. What's up with your headlights? Have they been scratched, or just getting cloudy? Oh, and as@Jonro2009 said, must be a trick of light. They're both black with a gold pinstripe running along the bottom [emoji6] Sent from my BLA-L09 using Tapatalk
  8. Thanks a lot [emoji5] Haha no I didn't either. I've read heaps about the process but still didn't trust myself to do it! Heat gun/hair dryer is another good option if you're ever feeling brave lol. They were more of a gift so I just covered the cost of materials (pair of headlights, bulbs, paints etc) - sorry, not too helpful. The glitter is very subtle! See the below picture. There's added glitter in between the ring and the black casing if you see where I mean... I agree though that the picture quality has been significantly reduced [emoji853] Sent from my BLA-L09 using Tapatalk
  9. Thank you! My accomplice did an exceptional job. I haven't finished thanking him yet lol Sent from my BLA-L09 using Tapatalk
  10. Fruits of last weekend's labour! Had these under wraps for a little while as I had my trusty right hand man on the job (wanted them finished before sharing), but excited to finally show off my custom headlights [emoji92] This is probably the first aesthetic mod that I haven't done completely on my own. Was nice to have the creative input of someone that I trust (as well as them doing all the legwork lol) and was equally as exciting to have progress updates along the way, right up until delivery! This must be what it's like to have your car in the body shop or alloys in for a refurb or something [emoji23] Work in progress: Finished and ready for fitting: All done: Also trialled some eyebrows which were consequently removed with immediate effect lol: Need to rework this as I like the look but the finish was not as expected [emoji853] So there you have it. New headlights in a gloss black with metallic gold rings and a de-tangoed indicator with a glitter accent. Thoughts/opinions/feedback all welcome! Sent from my BLA-L09 using Tapatalk
  11. Looks exactly like that I'm looking for. Still haven't gotten in touch but I made a note of their number. Thanks again [emoji16] Sent from my BLA-L09 using Tapatalk
  12. Thank you, will definitely check them out! All sounds very nice. They may only be tiny changes but all part of the bigger picture in making your car your own! Still worth documenting imo [emoji5] I agree, but not worth the ticket you'll no doubt get in the post a few days later haha I haven't actually been on a proper drive since, but I can already tell they won't disappoint! It's actually still on lol - my friend with a code reader let me down [emoji1418] Sent from my BLA-L09 using Tapatalk
  13. That's exactly why I chose those ones [emoji16] Perfect in every season lol. Haha, well I'd like to think I'm not wide either but it's definitely an all round more comfortable drive! Sent from my BLA-L09 using Tapatalk
  14. Ahh thanks Yunii, I'll have a look for him. Any idea on what measurements I would need for a MK6? I suppose I could ask him as well if I find something I like Sent from my BLA-L09 using Tapatalk
  15. I'll take that lol! Well glad it was entertaining for you to read [emoji5] Definitely need to have a proper look for some. Struggled with the measurements first off, and some I've seen are almost £80 for a set [emoji88][emoji88][emoji88] I like the ones you've posted though - go with my theme quite nicely! Let me know when your thread is up and I can have a gander at the pics [emoji5] I know what you mean there - being in London, a lot of the places I want pics are on a red route. Double red lines and no stopping/parking at anytime! I'm sure you'll get the shots. Maybe go at night and take a friend... The seats are so much nicer for long drives! Not difficult but just time consuming finding them in good conditions, no rips/tears, reasonably priced and not from Scotland or Plymouth [emoji23] Got there in the end!
