What's people's opinions on the wrapped lights?

Undecided whether or not to cut out a secret to on for reverse lights, also makes it legal I guess ha.

Yeah it's great thanks mate..

Only negative is its constantly dirty from diesel and does chuck it up the back of the car more.

But a small price to pay for a much cleaner snarter looking exhaust..

Another little update:

Tweeters fitted and sounding great, does make quite a difference to the sound, clearly noticeable.



Thanks to mob17 for all the help with these.

And, while my car is in to get the ac evaporator changed, here is my courtesy car:



She is a 2010 audi a3 sline 2.0tdi 170..and..

I really dont like it, not anywhere near as nice as i had expected and really want the e91 back.. it has heated electric leather, bluetooth dab etc etc but just feels bland and disconnected.

I am obviously a true bmw lover ha!

Most important bit really:

Xenon upgrade is underway:





I Have washer jets and as you can see the lights, ballasts, bulbs and an auto switch.

Left to get are:

Loom
Level sensor for auto levelling
Washer pump and separate/different washer bottle.
FRM2(hopefully fully coded from Sam(makkan)

I need to say a Huge Thanks to Danny.B for all the help and guidance on this as without him i wouldn't have attempted this! and Thanks to Sam for continuing help and advice.

Thanks
