    ye youve got it soak them in boiling water to remove the top layer give them a good sand to remove any small parts use a plastic primer give it a couple or 3 coats when dry wet and dry sand with 4-600 grit sandpaper, make sure you do it wet!!!! then 3-4 light coats of base coat, then 3-4 coats of laquer if your not to comfortable why not get the body shop to do it?
    love life as much as your car

    as has been said really mate i wouldnt waste money on a remap you would probably get more power from a good cai(cold air induction) like piper cross viper /k&n typhoon or my personal favourite green cotton twister filter and a good quality exhaust eisemann springs to mind or milltek both excellent products

    So what sort of lights should I be looking for or if any of you guys have purchased any bulbs, xenon. Can you recommend any and do they have a really white out put?
    I need to sort my bulbs out as well - although I want a slightly blue tint to match my CCFL's. I have the Super Brilliance bukbs in mine and they're not very white, bright yes but still slightly yellow.

    I think I'm going to get a set of Philips Blue Vision bulbs and hope they match. I think you may struggle to get halogen bulbs bright enough to be honest so a set of HID's may be the best option.

    see the problem is them HIDS need kits, and from what ive found out most of them tend to be illegal. so i really dont know where to go, theres no point in spending good money on angel eyes and have them look amazing just to spoiil them with them yellow bulbs.

    ill look around and see what there is.

    nick, if i was to add any of them to my car what sorta performance would i be lookin at ?

    look on the respective web sites mate and it will give you an indication of what gains are to be had from each product but its hard to say really the only way to tell is to have it put on a rolling raod but if your gonna remap then its best to get all the tweeks done before you get it mapped every little helps but just remember not all the same car with the same engine will make the same bhp after a remap

    I'm not totally up to speed on HID's but my understanding is that with projector head lamps you should be OK. I also understand that legally it is a bit of a grey area - a well set up set won't cause any issues. I however decided that it was just too much hassle and risk, so I'm ging to go with a set of really good quality bulbs with a blue tint. The Philips bulbs always do really well in AutoExpress tests etc.

    There are xenon bulbs on E-bay, but they seem really cheap so am not convinced that they quality will be up to scratch.

    true, i recently bought some lights from my local spares, and it was a 55watt bulb said it was white with a tint of blue, just had a quick look at them about half an hour ago they look ok but you can still see abit of blue. tomorrow after im done in the body shop ill take good quality pictures of the angel eyes in the dark and also the lights i bought.
