    Looking good there. I see you still have old design alloy wheel centres.
    The new OEM part has the roundel going right to the edge and is domed a bit more. There a few sets on the bay about £25-£30 a set BIN or a few auctions running with them.

    or here

    PS are they OEM flat/evo wiper you have, and how are they compared to standard ones? Also looks like you can change your front indicator bulbs to silver ones to "hide" the orange if you wish, 5 min job. Cheers!

    sure did.. tried meths, polish, i got some intensive glass cutter from halfrauds today and i used that (states it removes rain repellant) and it made it slightly better but never done my wipers because they will be filthy and i havent washed the car so when i do ill redo the windscreen and wipers and see what comes of it..

    p.s... I want your car! trade?

    Indeed!, just a very thin silver coating means they are chrome appearance and almost disappear when off but still light amber/orange. They sell them all over, even Halfords do them, they are E-marked and legal to fit. google images "silvervision" for some comparisons.
