Well, what i done to my MK5 today??

Bumped it into MK1 Ford Mondeo. Fu"" I hate this feeling now!!!

My MK5 has not even got single scratch on it, which is good news, but Mondeo needs new bumper and indicator! Hopefully the guy who owns Mondeo will not go through insurance, i offered him to pay cash for repairs. Lets hope its not mega £££.

Nice bumper by the way, what are you planning to do with old one???

Like the bumper, is that a "conversion" one or a genuine one?
Bumper is genuine but with TDI front panel

eBay my friend! They're not genuine articles, made by depo who make all the ones the Mk4 guys rave about. Cost £109 with £7.50 postage.

I used Philips X-treme H7 in the dipped beam (£23 from eBay), Osram night breaker plus h7 in main beam (£13.50 from eBay and incredibly bright), and these LED sidelights from eBay (£13.99, very nice white light).

Reccomended on R32oc forum.

Beam pattern is very good, even got complimented by the guys at the garage!

Link to the lights!

Come with levelling motors installed, and are a great fit once they're in properly.

Haha noo a link to the bumper I don't want your crappy reflector headligths! [:#]

Olsen, when you say front panel do you just mean the polystyrene bumper thing, I was under the impression the genuine R32 and GTI bumpers didn't fit without a lot of work [:S]

They fit [:D] but as u said: lot of work [brick]. It took me over 4 hours to do it. And the front panel I mean the panel which holds radiator. Normally u have to change it too or cut the bumper a little bit.
