    Well while trying to remove the last screwing in the engine bay that holds the front drivers wing in place (ended up f***ing rounding it off :banghead:) i had a look over the engine bay and noticed something quite alarming.

    The drivers headlight is cutting into the upper boost hose, its the ballast under the light i think thats doing it, the silver caseing thingy, its cutting away at the silicone (i am running SFS hoses).

    Now has anyone else had this problem? Think it may be a case of cutting an inch off the end to pull it up more, well i hope.

    The thing is the SFS hoses where/are larger then the OEM hoses i took out ages ago.
