    Took advantage of the nice weather today.

    As I've got my motor about where i want it to be looks wise i thought i would today take advantage of the sunny weather and clean and wax the beast as it was looking a bit sorry for its self covered in mud and salt........

    Love this time of year but hate driving on freshly salted roads makes you think what's the point in cleaning your motor as 5 miles up the road it looks a mess again.

    Took some all shiny pics (dont want to drive it now.....):

    Took advantage of the nice weather today.

    Looking good! Do you have LED fog light bulbs, where did you get 'em from?

    Thanks,

    Yep there LED i bought them off Ebay but there no longer functioning as fog lights they have been re-wired to run as DRL's so there on all the time the ignition is on and cant turn them off.

    Here's the bulb next to the standard one:

    That, my friend, looks sensational!

    I have actually just bought some 40mm apex springs and b5 perches as I read in your other thread that's what you used, and it looks the perfect ride height to me.


    Loving the votex actually, I'm not normally a huge fan of it, but it suits your car well!

    Thanks

    Only plans i have on the to do list in the new year are window tints B pillar's back and a spruce up under the bonnet.

    Yep im a fan of the tinted rear lights, i think it matches my colour scheme black/silver/grey, the red was a bit odd one out, the way ive done them by applying a small amount of standard black to car lacquer and applying coats till the desired effect is reached so it has a high gloss finish and it stays quite translucent.

    Side lights on in day light:

    I do like this car specially they colour but then I am biased as it's the same colour as my Avant! Still not 100% keen on the rear lamps.

    The LED fog bulbs unfortunately didn't keep the warning from coming up but it was simple to sort by fitting these in series with the bulb holder:

    Dead simple.

    Yep they are 6000K

    Just a quick question, with the lowered springs, do you hit the bump stops much when carrying any weight in the back?

    Cheers
