    Fitted these today.....

    Just got around to changing my dials from boring black to sporty white like the GSI.....


    Also i have now fitted Silvatec bulbs in my indicators and replaced my standard main beam and sidelight bulbs with xenon gas style ones.

    I'll get a picture later of those all lit up at night so i can show the difference.

    Here's the front with sidelights only (apologies for the pics but my phone does not take the best pics at night)

    And with main beam:


    Unfortunatly the white dials are going in the bin unless I can find a way of making the lights brighter behind them.

    I take it you've just removed the black dial sheet and swapped it for a white one and used the same mechanism?

    If so you might have a problem with the speedo (and tacho)reading wrong

    Admittadly the needles are white like the dials for now but I will be changing that by painting the needles black once I have seen how they light up at night and am satisfied that the white dials work ok. As for the dials reading wrong they are exact replacements for the oe dials and lined up perfectly (i checked first) and made a little mark underneath where a certain point should be so that they always lined up. Work great so far (at least in daylight).


    Pics added above..........
