    Noticed one of the LED sidelights had a couple of smd’s failed so bought new lamps and fitted & tested them
    Old lamps - white and the new ones - black

    Had mine serviced and new thermostat

    Ordered butyl tape for obvious reasons in this weather

    Thinking of lowering as the starfish alloys look lost in the standard ride height arch gap

    Awright Lee, I’ve had H7 HIDs from eBay for a few years now - 35w 6000k but can’t remember which ones, they were about £45 when I bought them 2-3 years ago

    Sworn at it, kicked it and have found that if I drive into my local scrappies they'll give me 300 for it - right now thats not a bad offer.
