    3SE - a lighter colour woud work, I also think that it lifts the interior a bit and brightens things up a bit. I hated the grey that my interior was.

    I bought the angel eyes from e-bay from a company called Litespeed and fited them myself. They took a while to do because the bumper needs to come off, although the hardest part is splitting the headlight units. There is a really good how to on this forum done by a compact owner called Cal.

    Yeah a lighter colour would be better, i was thinking maybe a silver, or something? still trying to figure out whether i should do it myself or get someone whos done them to do mine.

    Ill look them up and see if i can get some of them angel lights, and get my mechanic to do them. found some mv2's without tyres for £299 you think its worth it?

    I looked at them - they look OK. They only reason that I went for mine was because there are a few other people on here who have them and are really happy with them. Their feedback seems OK as well, so I dout you can go too far wrong with them.

    In terms of your interior, I would have a crack at it yourself. As long as you prepare it properly and take your time you can't go too far wrong. The other option would be to buy a set from a breakers, paint it and if you're not happy with it you won't have mucked up your only interior trim.

    oh dont get me wrong its not a problem with the preparation its actually getting them out of the damn thing that worries me you know.

    A little update.

    I've recieved the new rear tail lights that I ordered all the way from london on friday. ( recieved monday morning...very nice)

    Ordered the Angel Eyes, friday aswell from birmingham ( still havent arrived...Thank you post office...)

    Ordered and paid for my MV2 alloys in silver today ( arrives tomorrow)

    Thursday I hand in the car to get painted and done up and fitted so hopefully if no other cyclists crashes into my car again or unforseen incidents happen, Pictures of what the car looks like will be on friday!

    Is there a good place to sell my previous wheels and tyres though? Isit a good Idea to advertise in the forums or best to put it on ebay or somewhere?

    Good stuff mate - looking forward to seeing the pics. Are you getting it colour coded professionally or is the paint to do with something else?

    In terms of shifting you existing wheels, e-ay is probably not a bad bet, along with this forum.

    my car is all colour coded anyway mate. its that ive had damage on the car from before and some moron on a bike crashed into it when it was parked so ive had to get them all re-done. its only scratches and dints and stuff but i want it spotless. i'm also gettin the bonnet re-done because its got a few stone chips on it.

    im not sure what to do with the alloys to be honest.

    my new wheels are coming already fitted with performance tyres anyway. so i dont know.

    not done the interior trim though...
