    The compact has been getting a little neglected recently as most of my time and effort has been spent on the Z3.. however when I was on the phone to Quarry Motors to get the roll hoops for my Z3 I also picked up new rear lights for the compact! Amber indicators are a pet hate of mine especially on dark colour cars!! - it was one of the first things I changed on the Z3 and it was the first thing I changed on the Compact as well (I've got smoked indicators front and side on the Compact) - although I never got round to doing the rears until today!

    I had a few projects planned for today - but unfortunately the weather put the brakes on them! :( the good news was I managed to get the lights swapped over! - here' some before and after pics - love the new look especially on the black.. looks a lot cleaner.

    AFTER:



    SIDE BY SIDE COMPARISON:


    Very happy with the results!

    it's orange bulbs that are in at the moment (all I had to hand!) - but I'm going to get chrome bulbs the same as I've got for the Z3! the only thing worse than the amber look is the 'fried egg' look
