Re: White headlights

I have Osram Nightbreakers and they are whiter and brighter than standard but still look yellow compared to the DRLs.

LED or HID is the only route to take unless you buy blue coated halogen H7 bulbs which are white but light up nothing.

Re: Advice on waxing please

If you have access to a plug I would just buy yourself a DA polisher and do it yourself. Plenty of tutorials on Youtube and not as hard as some 'detailers' make out.

You can then repeat the process every year to keep it looking brand new.

Re: Gloss black powdercoat

Looks great. Tips are a bit bigger than the 1.6T I just fitted.

Re: rpm when shifting from 1st to 2nd in 1.4t?

Probably around 3.5k. Depends what mood I'm, sometimes it's 5.5k but it becomes a bit notchy higher up.

Re: My 1.4T

Exactly why I fitted one. Always liked it on the 3dr J.

Re: My 1.4T

Finally fitted a 1.6T backbox and wrapped the plastic trim in gloss carbon to match the mirror caps and interor trim.

Re: Buying a used 1.4 turbo SRI

Walk away, but don't reject every 1.4T. 99% will run perfectly and there are thousands to choose from. No guarantee a 1.6T or 1.0 will be in better shape or driven properly.
