Its a bumper off job to fit the lights etc but is no biggie to do. While I had the bumper off I also fitted a hid kit to the fog lamps and applied the yellow lamin x film to them.

I can PM you the number of CPD as i'm not sure if I am allowed to post there details in my reply.
Hey, thanks for the reply

If your could PM me their number i would be very grateful, could you also tell me how much your local paintshop charged you to spray the kidneys? As i might ask mine but dont want to get ripped off :/ lol.

Cheers again westside

some good work right there!

what was involved in fitting the back box? did you need to have a new mount welded to accomodate the other side? how much was the backbox as well

hi Norman, the estate has a canaster on the drivers side where the second bos was due to be mounted. The lads at Pro Custom mounted the 2 boxes on the passangers side (one for each side so they some even as oppposed to using a duplex system)

Some nice touches there. Where did you get the induction kit from? Does it give any extra performace or is it just aural pleasure?

ahh thats some good work there. Will keep it in mind if i do decide to go for the conversion!

did you fit the headlights yourself? if so when you took the feed for the angel eyes did they cause any bulb errors or are they just plug and play?

hi bud

yes i fitte dthe lights myself when i took the bumper off to give it to paintshop to spray and fit my lip.

The headlights come with angel eyes there the depo ones (however the bulbs they use are yellow) I ordered a set of white leds from german ebay which are made to replace the yellow bulbs in the depo lights. They cost 29 euros all you have to do is replace the 8 bulbs in each light with the LED ones job done. No errors.

For the HID your have to buy a digital canbus kit to stop and errors being thrown up i did the same for the fog lights

Hope that helps..

Hi bud yes I had the non angle eyes I looked in splitting the headlights and fitting aftermarket angele eyes but it looked like a complete nightmare.

The front lights cost me 220 from CPD. Car Products Direct based here in the UK.

Mods not sure if I am allowed to mention the name of the compnay i got them from so please feel free to remove the name.

hi link for LED lights for ther Depo headlights

http://www.ebay.de/itm/110625118088?...fvi%3D1&_rdc=1

Also when i fitted the kit the kit to the light i brought the HID bulbs h7r this also stops glare to on comming cars but as the headlights also have projectors built into them this also helps. ITs then worth going to a MOT station to have the angel etc set up. The depo lights come with a leaver inside which you have to push down (IIRC) to set them to RHD

hope this helps :-)

Going to change the plugs etc this weekend I have had some of the engine covers painted to match the brakes and RPI scoops I'll get pics up then its time for a strut brace :-)

Another couple of questions for you, where did you purchase the RPI Air Scoops from? Also did you retrofit the headlight washers?

Cheers again.

Hi Scott my car came with the headlight washers already. The RPI scoops I brought from my mate who sold his e92 m3. However you caqn buy the RPI scoops from Roy at CA Automotive. Id also suggest replacing the filter with a panel filter if your not running an induction system

HTH :-) happy modding
