Do you have sat nav.? I got sat nav, then reversing camera. I think it can be done without, but easier if you have it.

4 brake light mod is on ebay for £75.

DRLs look pants unless OEM.

Not got sat nav but looked online at reversing cameras which display through the screen and look pretty good.

Just wanted a recommendation as to what to buy or avoid.
Agree the DRLs look the best in OEM but thought there may be an alternative option to keep the ££££ down

I'm also looking for reverse camera. Pretty sure there's a company in the states that sell them. Phone company or similar?

Almost forgot. It's R35 audio that sells the 4 light kit. Might be cheaper if buying direct on here.

Reversing camera, Google car kit company the guys name is Brian.

4 light kit R35 Audio.

Y pipe Litchfield who can also fit the camera and 4 light kit for you.

DRL. Don't bother they look pants unless integrated into the bumper..

How about an auto closing wing mirror module, makes the wing mirrors close and open automatically when you lock and unlock the car? Cheap and tasty little mod and you will know if it's locked or unlocked just by looking at the car..
dudersvr, misters3 and E3BLS like this.

Folding mirrors - Mine is by a company called Top Secret think it was £100 pretty simple to install - they can be tempermental now and again

don't bother with 4 tail light - when the lights are on it looks silly as one is will darker - you can get your self a set of 2011 - 2013 head lights cheap enough, even sell your 09 ones as well then they will work better

DRLs are costly - by the time you buy a bumper etc you maybe looking at 1,500 by the time it's sprayed up etc - Knight racer do a replica bumper for 800 but not sure on fitment as it is plastic

reversing cam - yeah google Car kit company or even Nissan can do the conversion but I believe a bit more costly
Y pipes sound amazing - most company's are good a deffo a good to do

Agreed - I've never seen an example where the lights are of different brightness.

Folding mirrors - yes they can be, remove battery + for 5 mins and back on seems to sort mine out

4 tail light - mine are all the same brightness and look quite cool.

Yep, they are, but just on normal lights all 4 are the same. When braking the outer 2 only light up dim.

DBA brake lights are brighter than the sun, they make the drivers behind you put their hands across their eyes, haha.

edited to correct inner to outer.

Yeah, suspect he means when braking, inner ones are brighter. The main thing is all four are on with sidelights.

Kept in stock if you want to drop me a PM Kimmea

Where would I start to look at the wing mirror mod?

Thinking about it, I'm about to order the camera kit and folding mirror module. I wonder if we could save on postage by buying together.
