    Door Pins

    Ok, I want to waste (I mean spend) a little bit of cash, just to make me feel like I'm modding

    I've ordered INXX bonnet lifters, flat AERO wiper Blades, Irmscher (whooo I own somthing Irmscher!!) heater dial fascia (brushed stainless steal/electric blue), sunglasses holder and I'll be ordering some decent mats.

    I also want to buy door pins.

    But I need your opinions

    I can't make my mind up. I'm mostly interested in the Richbrook silver door pins. I would get the Irmscher mirror finish ones if they weren't so ridiculously priced or have problems with rubber bands snapping.

    So which ones should I get?

    Thanks!

    the rubber bands will only snap if you use the button to lock/unlock the doors. the irmy one's aint that expensive. i've got the brushed look irmy one's on my zaf and in the 2years they have been on not snapped a band yet(touch wood)

    For a student on minimum wage like myself, £20 for 2 door pins is extortionate!

    I still prefer the look of the silver Richbrooks, but I'll to see what more people think, or hopefully see pictures.

    Do you have any pics please jam?

    I'm sorry to annoy everyone with constant threads full of questions - I'm hopeless at choosing something I have to spend money on. Martin will agree on that! lol

    The only things that I think should be shiny silver are the wheels...I don't think it quite looks right with any silver mirror effect on the inside but that's just my opinion I vote the black ones!
