Re: Bulb upgrade

I have converted my headlights to LED , but you have to have the 3 sided 6000K .. 4 sided are crap . 2 sided leaves a dark line across the middle . They are a vast improvement ..

Re: Daytime running lights, switching off.

It is a legal requirement for the DRLs to be on , if you do disconnect them and you take it for an MOT it will fail .. Also if you have an accident and the insurance find out , then that will be a modificati...

Re: Hybrid battery
