Well that's both headlights done
Not without hassle tho snapped a clip on the headlight cover lol and getting the buggers to sit just right so their flush with wing/bumper and bonnet when down is a pain lots of bonnet up lights  adjust light cover lights down bonnet down and do it again lol
Also replace number plate lights with white led ones and the interior lights and glove box ones replaced with ice blue leds
Might change these for white leds yet like

Yeah they seem a lot better but ain't been out yet and with the led side lights they make the front end look far more modern at night but not cheesy which is a fine balance

Anybody ever bought any CORP stuff? Was looking at there radiator silicone hoses etc on ebay (very nearly clicked buy) and noticed they do a full front mount and pipe kit for the FD as well. I know it's never going to be as good as the named stuff but budget won't cover all the mods I want at the mo lol so something has to give and be upgraded later
