    Winter is coming!! so i have put my winter wheels/tyres back on the car :smiley: and given the others a good clean and tucked them up for the winter. Also did a full bulb refresh on the front end, Looks like the small connector that does the headlight adjustment has melted together :worried: and the other headlight has both the lower fixing points not there :worried: so will be looking at getting a new set of headlights and a connector from somwhere

    I guess its that time of year was definitely cold this morning and evening. Frost warning light came on my dash to and from work today. Sorry to hear about the headlights. Euro car parts have a 30% code for tonight till 9pm (flash30) 2 oem headlights would be £180 after the discount if that helps.

    oh, and it would seem not having the headlight adjuster working is a problem :tearsofjoy: keep getting the cars in front of me tweaking their interior mirror, and cars coming the other way flashing me

    My headlights are pretty much gone. Where did you get yours.
    Mine have also stopped leveling, how did you sort that, or is it all part of the new headlights.
    Cheers

    You got a link to the ones you bought, there are loads?

    Can you tell any difference between originals?

    Gave it a good wash today, as it was quite dirty, and a bird decided to crap all over the bonnet/windscreen/roof/boot some how :worried:

    Things for next year

    Sort plug for auto leveling
    Fit new headlights
    Fit refurb calipers
    Full front and rear brake refresh
    Fit heater panel
    Might get the winter wheels refurb next year, not sure

    Just done my heater panel. Fun job. It took hours. I practised putting it back in with the old one as I was damaging it massively. Eventually figured out the best way to get it in, then covered the new one with lots tack masking tape.
    Only other tip is to make sure it is seated properly, I had it nearly all back together but couldn't get the bottom panel to clip back in. Turns out I was a few mm away from having the bottom of the heater panel clipped in correctly.
