    FMIC and Headlight changes

    Hi. Had the day off work and thought it would give me chance to tidy up and change some bits on my GSi that have been annoying me.

    First off fitted HID headlight kit which I think looks much better, just need to change the sidelights as they look really yellow now...

    Was quite difficult and involved cutting and modding the bulb holder to fit the new 1's. In the end jus dropped the bumper off and look the headlights out to save fiddling about. Found the 'How To' on this quite useful. - http://www.astraownersclub.com/docum...hnical/HID.pdf



    While the bumper was off i thought it was a good time to pay the FMIC some attention as it was starting to show some ruff spots and had gone a bit dull.

    Picked up some BMW star silver paint from Halfords and sprayed the centre of the cooler with it, dangerously whilst it was still on the car! lol.





    Worked out good, and finished the sides by wet and dry sanding them down and then metal polishing it up. Looks much better. See wot u think...

    Thanks 4 the comments.

    I've just got dipped beam HID's. I've looked at PIAA sidelight bulbs for just a white light. There are some LED sidelights on ebay that look quite bright as well. Not sure which ones to go for tho. Any thoughts?
