    Another quick shot of the rear number plate lights, they are quite bright aren't they! they look more like rear facing headlights! once again apologies for the low quality photo.

    I've also fitted a VXR badge to the front grille, nice little touch. Might stick a pic on tomorrow. Tempted to tie it on with fishing line or something similar as I'm not convinced it will withstand jet washing.

    Nice, they look better quality than the ones I tried a few years ago, do they dim down a bit when you put the dipped beam on?


    There's really no need for the fishing line, although it is a good idea, I've had the badge on the grille for 3 years and its still solid.

    Thanks Wardy,

    No they stay the same brightness when on sidelight or dipped beam. However I've noticed the bulbs don't work on DRL mode, anyone any ideas?

    Cheers

    I fitted my HID kit today (sorry no pics) and I'm very happy with them. Took me a few days to get everything ready e.g. the caps but they look very crisp and make the car stand out even more. Need to road test them a little more but been out tonight with them and so far so good.

    Car got a few mods on now, so starting to feel more exclusive & passed 3000 miles tonight too, car feeling & driving good.

    Thanks for looking

    Default My Summit White GTC VXR Astra



    New private reg and custom number plate.

    Car booked it next month to try and eliminate the clicking noise I'm experiencing when turning at speed. Could be CV joints, could be brake pads don't know yet. Been in once to no avail, hopefully this time round it will be sorted or I'll be asking questions of Evans Halshaw.

    Thanks for looking
