Thanks for the advice on the lights guys, is the HIDS conversion a straight bulb swap or does it need some tinkering? I need to get a load of spare bulbs for it so I'll either go for the Halford Brillance or the HIDS if its easy to do.
Thanks Brad for the console offer, but right now I think I have more pressing jobs on the car to spend the money on, so like you did, I think I will have leave it for a while until I get round to that job as the console is not too bad for the time being.
Did some fiddling with the radio today and found that selecting the initial settings allowed me to set the radio up to dim when the lights come on - why it wasnt selected before, I have no idea. Also manged to get some of the none working lights going, though not the glove box lamp.
I'm also a bit puzzled why my car doesnt seem to have foot well lights as described in the owners manual, mine only has the mounting holes and no wiring?
I gather it should also have an electric aerial, but mine doesn't so the rather wobbly current one will be swapped soon.
The Mrs got hold of the keys today and is smitten - says it reminds her of our old Sud Ti from a handling perspective - looks like I have competition for it now
