    Silver X10XE Slow Project

    Finally got registered on here after a few problems so i may aswell get my project up. Here it goes

    Firstly hello everyone my names Tony and i live in sunderland

    Right the car! Bought this two and a half month ago from my uncle it is my first car and i love it


    As you can see it didn't take me long to fiddle with it. Within my first week i had replaced my sidelights, interior light and number plate light with some white LED's

    Nice picture as the light levels decreased


    Then a few weeks later i decided to order some white xenon look headlights from ebay




    They stayed in for all of a week before i decided they were too weak and not bright enough

    So i replaced them with some phillips H4 bulbs
    They were much brighter then my ebay ones so i am happy with them now

    A few weeks later i decided i wanted wind deflectors so bought a set of heko deflectors off the internet.

    Before


    After




    Thats all the pictures i currently have although i have also installed some FLI speakers in the front and a pair of 12'' woofers in the boot. I just forgot to take pictures when installing them

    The speakers i bought

    I have also carried out a service on the car and my oil filter looked like it had never been changed. It just crumpled in my hand when i took it out.

    My current todo / want list

    Colour code
    Respray wiper arms
    Different rear wiper
    Figure out rear washer problem
    Decent Wheels
    Possibly lower 40mm
    Sort fuel filter bracket / bolt
    Tint windows
    Light tint rear lights
    De badge
    Rear spoiler
    Paint interior trim
    Subtle exhaust
    Angel eye headlights or depos depending whats cheaper at the time
    Seat covers and mats
    Sunglasses holder
    Better map light
    Glovebox light installing
    Blue leds for centre console, MFD and light switches.
    Blue leds for clocks
    Find out why my temperature gauge isn't working :/


    Thats all for now thanks for reading

    It's not highly rated but it also did a nice job with mine. Isn't permanent though as mines looking like it needs another run now it's been a few month.
    Other plans ?

    I am looking into it as well. You can get kits on eBay cheap, but fitting them is the problem

    I've had a go at it myself before, side windows aren't too bad to do. The issue is the boot - curves are not easy at all! I gave up in the end as I ran out of tint (I wasted about 3 lengths the size of the window) - will only get it done professionally now.

    How much did you pay to get it done professionally?

    A lot... The Freelander came in at 210 for the rear windows (although that's actually 7 separate windows). It was the most expensive but best company for it in my area - I've heard places do it for a lot less.

    Hmmm I might give it a try, the kit is 20 for my car, would rather waste 20 than spend that much

    A more realistic figure for the rear windows of a Corsa would be 100-150.
