I'll also have to show you the lights with the new loom in, it really is incredible  :grin:

So you didn't think 'I think I'll get some illegal HID units' to upgrade your headlights, you bought an upgrade loom and stayed completely legal?

You must be not retarded or something......
Just because you're offended doesn't make you right.

So that the headlights do this.....






For mine, I also invested in a set of Phillips Xtreme bulbs and it made as much difference again. Not cheap at £20 a set, but they are still 55w and completely legal, they just burn brighter (probably at the expense of life expectancy).

Totally recommended.

Yep.

Alhough its been done some time ago, so the wiring/relays are getting a but crusty. Its nearly time for a refresh.


How are your wipers?   Have you sorted the other "Corrado Chestnut" out yet?

Yeah,

Sorted the wipers out more or less straight away, bought a complete new mechanism and they were still not contacting with the windscreen properly so I stripped the mechanism and shimmed it up to remove any play and added some aero wipers and *touches some wood* they work fine now  :laugh:

Just this drivers window now  :angry: ran the meter on the connections an I have power to the motor when I press the switch so everything is working now except for the motor so I'll have to source one  :sad:
