    hey,

    I was bored at the weekend, so i fitted my r8 led strip lights and my euro german number plates, what do you think? i was impressed with how easy it was to fit the lights and how they have a huge afeect on the looks. i will post up some pics of how i did it if anybody is thinking about fitting them and wants to know, what do you think?
    Now i have just got to wait and see if father xmas brings me the coilovers i asked my missus for.lol.:jump:

    Never understood why people do this. Looks terrible, especially as you don't have OEM xenons.

    Could it possibly be because they like it?

    I'm personally not a fan, but think that if you added some xenon white sidelight bulbs it would look better :)



    Sorry, off topic, but where did you get your black grills from Slick-A3? Or did you rub down and spray the chrome?
