Hi Ian, just wondering where you bought it from and the cost? I've not seen one yet but if it's as good as you say I ought to get one. Thanks.

Thanks Ian, that seems like a great price to pay.
Didn't know about the legal side Gus. What about MOT time? Are the l.e.d. rear lights also illegal? Mind you, these pesky cameras can't tell! Might just wait before I 'bling' it up as I don't need anymore points.

Illegal as a retro fit (in theory) but mine's been thru 2 MOT's now without a word. As most police forces don't have a dedicated traffic division anymore, finding a copper that knows a HID from standard is VERY unlikely. Speed/number plate sizes and exhaust are all they get trained in now round these parts :roll:
