The side repeaters are easy to change, you have to take it off to change the bulb anyway

Just not so easy when it’s caked in solid ice!
Having to endure temperatures of -9 during the daytime at the moment.
Haven’t been able to wash the car for nearly 3 weeks now, im beginning to suffer withdrawal symptoms

Re: Trend setter

Hey Guys,

I really like that there are Evo owners modding already.

I am one of these 'corsa lads' that modded my corsa and am looking to now make some subtle changes to the Punto Evo too.

At the minute im just looking at:
Tinted side repeaters (ordered from ebay today)
Lamin-x front lights
K&N induction kit (wana hear the Turbo!)
possibly lowering springs/coilovers (any Fiat/Arbath approved ones??)
Arbath bumpers (maybe)
either vinyl or sprayed - gloss black bumper centres
HID kits and led lights

and depending on how your unique mod (MrB) turns out i may have to copy that too! im assuming it is a clear plastic with a red bulb fitted for the fog?

Yeah that's it exactly. In Europe because the drive on the opposite side of the road they have to have their rear fog light and reverse light the other way round. Which means we can order the european reverse lamp unit and fit it where our fog light unit is or order their fog light and remove our reverse light unit. However this means you end up with a red reverse light and that's not ideal because I use the light from my reverse light on the drive and to let others know you going backwards. It is totally legal to do both as we don't require a reverse light by law, just depends wether you want two White lamps at the bottom or two red!
Thanks CrAiG 135T thanked for this post

Ah excellent. You know when you'll be receiving the unit? I want to see pics!! This is something i would like to do. I did hear on 350Z-UK that the law may get tighter on rear fogs as at the minute a red bulb is fine but apparently there is talk that it may soon be deemed not bright enough...

only talk though, on my corsa i had both fogs/reflectors tinted and no police cared in the slightest!

Cheers again
