    Next up is to get the exhaust sorted, SE exhaust looks rubbish and doesnt sit right with the S-Line diffuser. I will be going for an offset chrome twin tip.

    I have also ordered a Rieger style boot spoiler from Ebay Germany, so it should be with me by Monday.

    Set of 5000k HIDs coming in a couple of days as halogen lights are poor.

    Thanks lad. The LED bulbs are from eBay, they are P13W and you will need 4 of them, 2 for each headlight. they are usually sold in pairs. Mine are 11W, I got them as a set of 4 from WeSellHIDs, although I am having issues with one of the bulbs going out and coming back on every 2 seconds. Although I'm not entirely sure it's the bulb as my dipped beam H7 bulb was going dim and bright again one night. I'm hoping it's a loose connection somewhere.

    As for the HIDs I'm fitting them hopefully tomorrow night so I'll take some pics for you :)

    Nice progress. Good choice opting for the 5k rather than the whiter 6k or chavtastic 8k. At least you will be able to see where you are going! Oh and about the exhaust, plleeaaassseee dont make your car sound like a Bora/Toledo/Tractor with that "pppiiooww" sound. Naaaa I know you wouldnt you have more sense driving an audi :kissmyrings: lol

    Got my spoiler on last night. Its not as noticeable on a black car but adds a subtle sporty edge to the rear. :D

    Hi mate loving the car. Just got a question about your HIDS is there a beam pattern on them? Were they difficult to fit?
    Cheers

    They are in halogen housings so the beam pattern isn't as sharp as they would be on projector housings, but it does the job fine. I have them angled down onto the road so they don't blind anyone. I haven't had one other car flash at me yet.

    It's the best of a bad situation, I wish my car had factory xenon but this is the best I can do with what I have. The light output is fantastic compared to the poor halogen bulbs.

    Not sure what you mean bud but It has a low down pur to it, you can hear it when going up through the gears, not very noticable but it definitely wasn't there prior to removing the backbox

    On a cold start there is moderate noise, you'd know something was removed from the exhaust but once car is warmed up it goes quiet again
