Re: Custom front valance

You can buy an RGA front spoiler which imo improves upon the original in every way, whilst making it look slightly more aggressive without going over the top. I have some high quality fibreglass replicas for sale if you're interested, much cheaper than any of the online vendors too.

Re: Is it possible to upgrade the in car heating fan?

All done! Its bloody AMAZING! Never thought i'd be at the point in my life where i'd be getting excited about an in-car heater fan but there you go. Its such an upgrade too! The slowest speed is 2x faster than the fastest speed from the old motor, and the fast speed might as well be a hurricane! :lo...

Re: Is it possible to upgrade the in car heating fan?

Gutted the interior of my car to get the heater box out. That's lower dash, glove box, steering column loosened (as I can't get the lower dash section with the hazard switch on it if I don't), radio out, facia off and entire center console out. ( I swear I can probably take one of these dashboards a...

Re: Anyone know anything about HID's?

MOT rules are changing this year. HID bulbs that are fitted to light units without auto height correctors and headlamp washers will be a fail. Good to know, as it's been such a wishy-washy grey area for some time now, glad there's finally going to be some conclusive answer. I hope all the idiots ru...

:lol: I very much doubt that but it would be nice! Still, it'll be ready for when it gets cold again, probably during the summer knowing our weather ;)

Re: Is it possible to upgrade the in car heating fan?

Capri gear to the rescue once again! He has hooked me up with a brand new motor and resistor, hopefully by the time this is over I'll have a heater that can actually defrost the windows properly and the luxury of TWO speeds ;)

Re: Is it possible to upgrade the in car heating fan?

When I changed mine I bought a complete box, ready to fit, from Tickover. (£70 I think it was). Easier than getting a motor and opening the box to swap it over. Might be a better option for you, as I know you drive the car a lot and you may want the quickest option, took a few hours to fit, at a le...

Re: Is it possible to upgrade the in car heating fan?

It just died. Smelt something burning, but living where i do you can never know if its outside or not. Unfortunately it wasnt, as i felt the air vents and nothing was coming through despite the fan being on "full blast", i turned it off right away, left it for a couple of minutes and tried...

Re: Anyone know anything about HID's?

Maybe they're wired in series rather than parallel? Half power to each? I think that's probably unlikely, but you never know!! (I'm assuming parallel would be hoe they're wired from the factory?) Perhaps, would explain the dimnes. I'm going to have a leccy take a look. Any ideas how many amps or cu...

Re: Anyone know anything about HID's?

Bin those aftermarket HiDs, chaps, they're now a no-no That answers the question whether to convert to an aftermarket HiD kit. Perhaps the OP should try Osram Night Breaker bulbs instead. Andrew. I have those, still like having candles at times. High beam is like daylight, dipped beam is dangerous....

Anyone know anything about HID's?

Anyone here know much about High Intensity Discharge headlights? I'm seriously considering getting a set because my headlights are dangerously dim at times. I'm pretty certain they are working properly, they have good bulbs and are adjusted correctly, they just seem dull. I've upgraded them from the...

Yeah, depending on how much they are and if I can find one I might just do that. Cheers.

Well that didn't last long. As with all good things in my life they never last, and now this heap of shite is back to being crap, if not worse than it was before. I've tried everything short of taking the headlining out and adjusting the hinges there, nothing else seems to work. Ugh. I'm just not g...

An annoying new "feature" of modern cars.

Has anyone else noticed this stupid new trend where some modern cars turn on their fog light upon turning? I thought i was seeing people driving with their fog lights on (despite it not being foggy, but you know what people are like) and one was broken, but as i paid more attention and saw more and ...

Re: Is it possible to upgrade the in car heating fan?

So.... this is strange.... Today I went out to run some errands, and I decided to turn the fan on for what little air it blows out to help warm up the inside, and for some strange reason I can't possibly begin to understand the fan is working better than it has in years. I can actually feel the air ...
