    Yeah I might go with the non-sequential ones instead of messing with the wiring.

    Hey I'm looking to upgrade the bulbs like you did with a few questions:
    -Is there a special indicator LED you got from ebay? Will any T20 bulb fit?
    -Which high beam bulb did you get specifically?
    -Did you upgrade the 'C-light' bulb aswell?

    At the back of our owners manual has all the references to exactly which bulbs you need mate. I got all of mine from blingworks. Don't not use eBay they the wrong voltage lol. I changed high beam, fog, drl, reverse. If you want to do indicators you need orange glass or get orange led. White led indicators are illegal. I got pulled over. Warming no fine :) I will be ordering the tail lights too at some stage.

    Email japanparts enquiring about the sequential version. Not sure if they have them yet.
    Send me a PM with your email and I will send the instructions to you.

    Wow that looks freakin' awesome! I like your idea! I'll consider doing my own vinyl wrap project as well but will probably seek some professional help from Gatorwraps.

    Cheers Outdoors Guy.

    After seeing your link to Gatorwraps i'm wondering if you reside in USA and have been fortunate enough to import a Levorg.

    With the 12mm pinstripe for the window trim delete did you have a minor gap still? It's not easy getting it centres to minimise it!

    After importing some wiring harness from China and paying an insane amount of tax, it is safe to say that importing a car will literally cost you an arm and a leg in Turkey.

    Yes there still is a slight up close detectable gap. I could only readily source 12mm pinstripe so after umming and arrring i ran with the 12mm.

    The whole front bumper has to be removed to replace the grill. Hope that answers your question. Not a massive job, just surclips. Have someone with you to slide the bumper off and back on again.

    Have only just seen this... Yes 2 person job, be gentle on the clips/whole process. Took me about 2hrs yet if i did it again the time would be less. Have a look at youtube vids for the rex bumper removal ;)

    Can be done alone, but i suggest you get someone to help you the first time. Especially getting it back on.

    Haha! :D
    It's dangerous for us Norwegians to ask for help, we'll rather swear for a while and do it alone, than take the risk of asking for help!;)

    Looks and sounds great mate. You're now making me think about doing an exhaust to mine.

    Cheers Gents.

    After near on 1000km's done since installation the system has settled down nicely.
    I was abit apprehensive at first about the potential 'drone' noise yet this slight 'in cabin' sound has calmed down to a feasible comfort level... hardly even noticeable now.

    Prior to installation i used a sound deadening product in the tailgate/boot area. The start of limiting both road & exhaust noise and definitely worthwhile.

    :D
