Ah mate, no problem, hope all things are well! Thanks once again .. if you do get a spar moment would love to see more pics of the car with the lights (from various distances).

Also do I just order what's being sold or would I need to let him know what power rating bulbs to send.. i.e. were your's 7000k or etc...

Changing your LED's will be much more complex and involved.

Personally, if i had your car I'd leave them as they are as they will have 4 perfectly illuminated rings, my main issue was the outer rings weren't bright enough in day light, the colour change was a bonus

Hope this helps

Yeah, very straightforward - smaller hands help, there isn't allot of space but easily doable

Well, as long as i've owned a coupe, either this one or the SE before, i've never got my head around the stupid push/pull paddles on both sides, i got on fone as slow speeds when having time to think about what i was doing with each finger and thumb, but when driving spiritedly it just didn't happen !

With this in mind i junked them and fitted the M3 versions, much more my liking !



I fitted them the other week, makes for a nice drive now.

About the bulbs you've got dude, does one just place an order of what's being sold by the ebay seller does one specifically ask for a purpley tint??

I've also made this :



Stripped both the new switching unit and my existing one, to make one unit suitable for my car - everything illuminates as it should, the green auto light button, front and rear fog buttons and the light mode selection key

I also added some smoked side repeaters too :



Subtle but effective, allot brighter - along the same lines I added s pair of LED front indicator bulbs which are massively brighter, nice improvement over stock.
Changed the rear indicator bulbs for some silvertech mirrored bulbs, cleans up the rear light lenses somewhat.

Just arrived this morning, a handful of LED bulbs or the other lights in the rear clusters

Alittle freshen up for the end of the year ��
