NOOO!!! no no no take off the bonnet key thing. im from australia where our foci are sourced from europe. that bonnet key latch has to be the WORST invention ever. its worse than gonorrheae (not that i'd know).

e.g. u start the car and notice a funny noise. u must then turn it off before u can open the bonnet and restart the car. this time there is no noise and u have to check it again later.

e.g. u start the car and just remember u installed a new sri that u want to show ur mate. car must be turned off, bonnet opened and car restarted before u can show it off and rev it up.

e.g u get into a crash and the key thing gets smashed in... how do u open the bonnet to check if the engine is ok?

e.g even doing regular things such as checking engine oil and air filter requires u to find ur key before u can start work

see my point? i hate that thing with a passion!!!

you got a point, but for some of that i can just have the key with detachable clip.

the euro rear wiper had broken off during some rain. the wiper in the first place was already broken. when i was installing it, i had used to much pressure in trying to install it.
so ill be ordering a new one.

and my parts are finally painted!!!!!!!:

the parts were painted and healed and left outside untill i arrived. unfortunately, it rained so now the are dirty[bawling]. but all is good! they are finally ready to be put on!!!

actually i did order double reverse lights. not many people have that setup, so i just wanna try it out and see if i can pull it off.

normally, there is only one reverse light and one fog lamp(red). depending on which side the driver is, depends on where the reverse light is. soooo my reverse lights is one from the UK and another from somewhere across Europe.

and i know what you mean by how dark backing up is lol try backing up with no light and a small exit backing hoping im not hitting the fence.

its sad, i have to turn on my under glow to get in our driveway so i dont go in the ditch... my parents place is in the country so no lights out there... when the sun goes down, its black! lol
