They look super bright.

What bulbs did you use? I got some but they were just as bright as the standard bulbs.

Bought them off FB off a company called Little More Lighting.... Highly recommended...

Not done much really to the car over recent weeks.... However I've bought a number of new parts that I will be fitting over the coming weeks....

Hybrid BBT K300
Hella Celis Headlights
A rare Hella Spoiler with matching side indicators that sits inside the spoiler.

I'll be honest, they weren't to my taste but I think they actually look really good on a black car.

IMHO they would look loads better if the angle eyes where actually bright white... i hate yellow light and the first thing i would do is replace the yellow lights with bright white leds, followed immediately by the joey mod...  yeah i know you had anni lights so you might enjoy the chrome look for a while than one day it'll hit you... the reason why they had to grow on you is because of the chrome...  

 

I've been through that when i had my golf mk3 VR6 went from oem to In.pro R32 look chrome headlights just to still not be happy and not getting why... until i went and photoshopped the head lights black... the same day i took them out and satin blacked them... also took the time to replace the angle eye bulbs out and swap them with 6000k led bulbs it was the best mod done to the car... it brought the whole car together (my mk3 had a complete mk4 r32 look bodykit (except for the side skits.. those were m3 look ones)

@northpole if I'm honest I have to agree with you they do and would like better Joey modded...

If I decide to split them then I will Joey mod them.

As for the yellowish halo rings I've been reading been reading on online that it's a combination of the LEDs and sunlight that causes the yellowish effect... I will sort them and most likely replace the halos with a ccfl type halo ring...

My only reason I haven't split them yet, to test fit and need the other parts ..

Also can't justify splitting a 400 quid set of lights yet...

Here is some pics off a guy on FB that are Joey modded....

So yes I kind of have to agree with you on this onec555c0e47100e573dd7d102df7232c56.jpg6da116679c5bffa6d69dd4ef9c1307f0.jpgc697ab00c7063bf93e95fc5fa90463f6.jpg

Thanks for agreeing but I went through the same and for some stupid reason they look way better when Joey-modded... it doesn't make sense to me that hella didn't sell them in black... In.pro started selling them in black not long after I just bought mine.... so later on I could just buy them in black, and they were actually cheaper than the chrome versions....

So I've been a little busy over the last couple of evening and I've managed an hour or so for the last 2 night and finally got run to fitting the hybrid k300.

Old turbo removed and even managed to get the turbo out without removing my strut brace, turbo and down pip removed with no headaches snapped bolts etc...

This evening (Wednesday) managed an hour on the car and had a fecking knigtmere trying to line up the top oil and coolant lines.. finally after about 20 mins got them sorted...

Turbo connect and secured to the manifold, decat all fitted and a few other bits sorted....

Tomorrow's job is to finish off fitting the TIP, and get it running...

Hopefully while I'm at work I will powdercoat the charge pipe...

Finally got round to fitting the r32 seats , not everyone's cup of tea but i love them...

Also while the seat was out it was a perfect opportunity to deep clean under the seats..
