Thanks a lot guys for the replies, once again.

The other driver didn't make any offer for the damage on my car. He wanted me to compensate him in the opposite. Given the determination of liability can be controversial (alleged speeding v established nearly completed lane changing), and given the damage on my side is minor (just a few scratches), I once proposed on the spot that each side bears its own repair costs to resolve the matter. The other side refused. Then I told the police officer to start the formal procedure.

I understand the general rule against changing lane vehicles. However the application of this rule also depends on the circumstancial evidence, including the area of crash. I believe I have, at least, a reasonable argument because my car was mostly in the lane already and the car behind bumped into my very rear part (rather than doors, front etc.) which evidences carelessness on the other side. Anyway I'll see what my friends will say after looking at the photos.

Will check the doors and trunk today - thanks for reminding. Will also run the car for a bit to see if everything is performing as usual.

I think it is the other way round, HK$1700 for taillight and 1600 for spoiler, both items price goes up , I remember you get the taillight for 1600.

The spoiler is unpainted, the painted one cost over 2K.

Thanks man! I search the whole Mongkok....only 1 box of a PIAA 4700K H11 among all the store.

This H11 type is rare. There is also a brand called BEAM BOYS, but has to order the white color ones. They only have the yellow one in stock.

So I just took the only white/blue H11 stock.

I will try to disassemble the panels tonight. Crossed my fingers!

Yes....not sure whether the blackline will suit the TiAg in real life. Will there be a LED version soon?

I wonder whether Valiant will have some blackline in stock without the long wait...

How much does it cost you, other than lots of sweat and hard work?

I guess w/ a pair of foglights that powerful, you are not afraid of "Dai Mo Shan" anymore! way to go my friend!
Sunny, I know fog lamp should be more yellow-ish for its original purpose.
But I would like to match the colour temperature of my mains and fogs.

I can only find the only one named "BEAM BOY" last Sat, which costed me ~ 200.

Anyway, it's a bit dimmer than the original fog lamp now(may be due to the colour temperature)...so I will be slower in Tai Mo Shan
