Re: Marea 20v HLX saloon

Well it's been a year since I uploaded pictures of this car ......it's still going strong at 99,000 miles so doesn't move much ....she's looking lovely ......loads of work has been done including a felt end overhaul of suspension components ......

Next for the Marea is :
Paint Correction (still not done)
Rear end overhaul of suspension
The passenger side floor pan is getting a length long plate made
Also looking at getting a stainless Steel replica of the original exhaust system from the down pipe back with a 100cell sports cat fitted ....

I'm also testing LED headlights which make a massive difference compared to the HID units
Will let you know how it's goes
She just passed her MOT today aswell with no advisories ......Click image for larger version

Pleased to say they are brilliant ......
They are just as bright as the HID
The spread pattern is very even
They are CE marked
They have no ballast
No flicker over bumps
Don't need to heat up like HID
Only down side maybe is cost as they cost 52 a set

reasonable quality Xenon HIDs are about that much, so I might get some for the full beams, I wondered about putting HIDs in them, but the warm up time dissuaded me. What brand did you get out of interest?
got any pics?
