    Aye man, it's your fault lol, after seeing yours at AITP it had to be done. Then of course they will have to be taken apart and blacked out..... never ends lol.

    Looks well mate! Do you have any daylight pics of the rears? Love the rear led's just not sure about the black line around the outer edge, especially with mine being red and black, just dont want the over kill of red and black. Im interested to see the conversion. Mite have to tackle it myself :)

    I didn't realise you could swap the covers from the OEM clusters to the Dectanes. I'm sure it's straightforward, but I'm very nervous about giving it a go. Knowing my lamentable lack of nous, I'd end up ruining both sets of lights.

    That's a kind offer, Bez. To be honest, if I was going to have a go, I'd be happy to use my own OEM ones to start with. What troubles me is the idea of heating the Dectanes in the oven. Doesn't that risk buggering up the LEDs and circuitry?

    Im sure i read a guide on audizine bout this, but i might be wrong, it said that the oem lens would stick out further than the dectane one and that you would have to do a bit of trimmin to get it to sit properly.

    Cheers fella, splitter is vinyl wrapped in brushed steel.
    I will be ordering those LED side lights from Trups, they look spot on, on yours.
    Not sure how much for the rears, done a deal with Matt (Ultamodz) for the bi-xenons/tails/gearknob/engine covers/R8 oil cap
