    I think only the mods have got access to change the titles but i'm sure someone will be along soon to do it. Sounds like a decent set of plans to start with - the new pics arent working though (if there are any!)

    Ride is tidy...

    The only off-putting thing is the headlight covers - i think they would only work on a black C2 (GregWVTS had them on his and looked OK)

    Go for tinting the headlights - would look a whole lot nicer and more OEM+ than plastic stick on gubbins that stands out like a sore thumb !
