Ta Daaaa. Finally arrived

Post by XCOsmium » Fri Oct 19, 2018 5:11 pm

Hello All,

Finally got my D3 R Design Pro in Osmium grey on Wednesday. It's been a long wait since 4th March with 3 promised and 3 missed delivery dates by the Stealer. It been worth the wait though as a lovely drive. Do miss the sound of my V5 V40 but would have been stung by the Ultra Low Emission Zone fines coming in Feb to London.
Dash cam has gone in and LED tail light upgrade done so far so slowly getting her just right.
Just a few niggles like the missing ground/puddle lights but for those still waiting hang in there as a great car.

......and thanks to you for the info on the LED bulb upgrade. A brilliant share and I'll look to do similar. I'll get on to Amazon and see if I can find the right replacements. Seems unusual the LEDs aren't standard from the factory - oh well..!

No probs. I tried to post a video of them working but the forum wont have an mp.4 file attachment. My tech knowledge doesn't stretch to changing the file to one that uploads. The indicators look great and a 5 min job to do

Any chase you could post Amazon links to the led lamps or give us the sellers name?

Hi
May be you can upload the video file to Dropbox and share with us the link?
I am really interested to see the outcome on the indicators.
Thanks
