    Few new pics of my car!

    Gave the car a damn good clean today with Mer Polish (great stuff) so thought it'd be a good opportunity to take some pics and show off my new mods

    Look at that shine...

    Mods are, De-Badged, Badgeless Front Grille & Irmscher Lights. In the future i plan to colour code the bumpstrips, get some Irmscher splitters all round & i might consider Irmscher skirts too. But thats a lot of wages so i might have to wait a while

    Thats looking nice Graham,

    Always loved that colour and if I was to go for a newer one I would consider that colour, but they show the dirt and scratches alot. Mine is polar sea blue BTW.

    Keep up the good work and keep us updated.

    He means the orange indicator bulbs

    Opt of silvertec ones or give the ones you got a very light dusting of silver paint so they show up silver like these...

    Ah, i've always heard it referred to as "De-Tangoing" and equally bad name for it!


    But yes Silvertec Bulbs are on the way! And possibly some Xenon's too

    How legal would painting them be? Surely if i put too much on they'd be illegal?
