    Re: Facelift Lights

    Just wondering what the story is with insurance if you go and do this upgrade? i.e. will the insurance companay add on a premium if you do it. I guess it depends on the insurance company as well.
    Also would there be any issues with seling your car afterwards. I guess I'm a bit put off by the fact that it's an irreversible mod. I guess in a way it might make the car more desireable i.e. more sellable.
    Any views on this? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif[/img]

    it's reversible if you hasve 2 new wings!

    just make sure you properly paint the bare metal so no change of rust.
    although with is being galvanised steel, the zince should act as a sacrificial element over the actual sheet steel.
    insurance companies - is it a major mod? all i've done is chaged headlights.

    Re: Facelift Lights

    Would you want to risk driving with no insurance because you didn't tell your insurer you'd modified your car?
    They probably won't charge you extra for changing the lights but you are supposed to notify all changes that affect performance and/or increase the value of the car.

    I merely mentioned what you're supposed to do, not what you are most likely to do.
    One of my cars has radial tyres on it which didn't exist when it was made, another has a little black box that gives it an extra 35bhp. I should, according to the conditions of my insurance, notify both.
    Have I?
    Have I b*ll*cks!

    wiring loom

    simply get the connectors from audi to suit a 2000 model a4

    get the wiring kit

    then solder the connections to fit


    all I need now is the height adjusment
