    Good idea but use them with Eibach springs.

    I think they are h15 bulbs, Iím not 100% sure. I was thinking of upgrading them but I canít seem to find any, other than led type bulbs.

    I dropped off the spoiler at the bodyshop today, he placed it on the car to see how much prep work there was going to be, and to my surprise it only needs rubbing down on one side to make it sit right. He said i got lucky because aftermarket spoilers are usually crap fitment, especially fibreglass ones.

    They are gonna call me when they need the car to fit it on, probably Wednesday morning.

    So once they have the car, Iíll probably be picking it back up Wednesday night before they close or first thing Thursday morning.

    Iíll update with pictures very soon.

    Nice one mate. Looking forward to the pictures.

    Please put these in your car for your DRL (day time driving light)
    https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?m...2F321462335826

    See also if your reverse lights use t15 and buy another set. Youíll be able to see when you reverse and they are very bright.

    My bad. Completely forgot. Are you running millers shots or shell vpower or BP ultimate every now and again?

    Were you able to look at any of the filters etc. The cabin filter is one people rarely do.

    I run BP ultimate all the time but itís a 190ps diesel.

    Iím using shell v power diesel whenever possible, However i am guilty of using supermarket fuels afew times because they are closer to where I live. Iíve not added any fuel Additives yet but I might try some this weekend

    The cabin filter wasnít changed on the last service, so Iíve already done that afew months back due to getting bad smells from the ac, all sorted with a new filter and some bacterial spray.

    The air filter, fuel filter and oil was all done the day before I collected the car.

    You donít have to use v power but it helps. It all comes from the same place but it saves me having to order millers and trying to get the Mrs to put it in each and every time so we put BP ultimate. Roughly £5 more a tank for me than supermarket fuel.

    Some places use more bio diesel in the mix when it comes to diesel though. If it doesnít say EN590 donít use it. Regarding normal diesel.

    Never use bio diesel.

    Iím not sure if thereís a BP station near me, Iíll have to check. Whats the EN590 refer to? Is it about the quality of it or what itís mixed with?

    I prefer to use shell anyway due to receiving points for money off vouchers, and itís supposed to be better quality fuel or cleaner fuel etc etc.

    Itís just a standard. EN590 will only relate to standard fuel. So check for that when putting normal diesel in.

    The likes of v power and BP ultimate are different though as they are premium. I would prefer shell but I donít have one here.

    When you service your car next search for Quantum longlife 3, 5w30 itís Audi/VW genuine oil. £26 on eBay or amazon.

    Isn't the fuel station at Damons/Doddington Road roundabout a BP? I'm sure it was anyway. But always thought it was dear, because of being on the bypass no doubt.

    @IndigoGrrl You donít need to put premium fuel in really because your car runs perfectly fine on standard fuel. Itís just helps keep the engine cleaner. Most fuel just comes from the same refineries, itís just the additive pack thatís added. Not going to get performance gains in a small engine in the Corsa.

    Ah Ok, thanks. I must admit I heard bad things about supermarket fuel so try and use Shell, giving it a treat of V-Power when I'm feeling flush!

    Itís good to put it in every now and again. You can also buy fuel additives that do the same thing. Just make sure itís EN590 for diesel. Look up at the pump.

    So finally the spoiler is painted and fitted.

    The bodyshop had to delay the work due to a family issue which I wonít go into. They informed me that it would be painted and ready to fit over the weekend.
    So I dropped my car off on Friday night and have collected today (Tuesday).

    Whilst out doing my deliveries, I received a call this morning saying it was ready, luckily I was heading back to work to reload, so I stopped on the way to have a look at it and to pay for it.

    I only took one picture then my battery went flat so, hereís a before and after.

    Iím thinking about having the middle brake light tinted as itís very red and stands out loads.

    Love doing this sort of thing. Figuring out what can fit is all the more fun. Have you done the number plate lights yet?

    Sometimes width and length can be a issue but should be all good hopefully
