LED bulb upgrade, H7s right gassed to fit but worth it.

They look good :)
What brand/LED did you fit? Do you get issues with bulb check lights? On the dash?

Nighteye H7 and fog lights, cheap on eBay but are rebranded Novsight so pretty good with some led side lights.

Yes bulb errors but will code out via Carly.

Need to remove headlights to fit and need modified bulb holders but worth the hassle in the end 👍

Spent all morning polishing her only for it to go and rain an hour after I finished :headbang: new tires going on next Saturday, finally ditching the run flats and hope it makes a difference!

Originally wrapped these steering wheel controls, but it didn't work too well so had a go at spraying them yesterday.

Pretty good results but think the finish is a little too matte.
