My new car! I've always loved the look of these so I'm very excited about it. It's a facelift model with the BMW efficient dynamics so 177 bhp, 67mpg (on paper) and £100 a year road tax. I do a lot of motorway driving so this will be perfect :)

Former car - no longer own this car17 updates 20 followers 14 mods2014-01-24 11:30:34Well that was bloody fiddly! One of my sidelights and dipped lights went so I decided to replace the entire sidelight/dipped/full-beam setup with upgraded versions. Much better! (Old yellowy one on right, new on left)
The driver side is much trickier than the passenger, we had to take the entire wheel arch trim out.
The dash warning for the dipped light has now gone but I'm still getting a warning for the sidelights so I'm going to take it into the dealers.
The image with the cables etc. shows where the sidelight goes, you can see where the lights shine in which then get split into the two rings. Pretty clever!

Bad: Found a nice scratch (down to the plastic) in the front bumper. Possibly from motorway debris.

I have 3 of them on there, the middle one is a special edition black version.

Zero miles of range left but managed 700 miles on one tank. That's to London and back to Wales twice!
