    Clusters look fantastic!

    Red stuff looks horrendous.

    Coloured interior bulbs belong in Corsa's and their various counterparts.

    Its your car though!

    I know what you mean about the red i only had it in there about a week then ripped it out. Iv now got blue but thinking about getting a new gearstick and handbrake gaiter. If it was you would you go with black leather with the m3 strips in the corner or black with the m3 coloured stitching? Im not quite sure which one will look smarter, They both cost about the same so that part aint an issue, I have already taken my clear rear lights off and put my m3 style ones back on as they look smart in my opioion. but not sure about the gaiters inside.

    Your car looks sweet, I have always wanted a soft top but not sure if the wind as im driving along with the roof down would affect my hearing aids so never really brought one incase it did.

    To get mine proper blue i had to take the cluster apart, remove the dial faces from the clear plastic then get some cottonwool balls and some nail varnish remover and scrub the glue off the back of the dials cuz they had this orange coating on um once the glue is removed put it all back together pop ur bulbs in and away you go. it took me about 45 mins from start to finish but its well worth it if you ask me. The indicators are the same but instead of a cottonwool ball you should use a cotton bud and go around the arrow on the dial faces. Just one tip or word of wearning if you do decide to get the orange glue off be careful not to get any nail varnish remover on the dial face or it will start to bubble and the black face will start to peel. You only want to get the glue off on the back of the dials. Hope this helps mate.
