Right so I recently traded my 60reg CTS for a 57reg CTR GT and am absolutely over the moon with it.
Here it is:

As with any car I can never leave it be...
Here are the first mods I made:

1. The all important 'civinfo' sticker:

2. Refit my Heko's taken off the CTS

3. Grill badge - just seemed bare without it!

4. Cree led sidelights and number plate lights - super bright and super white!

5. 5W Cree reverse lights - amazingly bright, lights up the dark night like the sun :p

In comparison to standard (using Tom's car):

More to come due to Christmas ;)!

Very nice :)

Where did you get your Cree bulbs from?
Thanks :)

Reverse bulbs from here (listing is for one bulb by the way):

T10, 501, W5W, T10, 955 5W CREE Q5 LED power bulb 12V/24V | eBay

Too bright to use as sidelights and they get so hot - DON'T touch them whilst they are on - will burn your fingers, trust me - so be warned!

Sidelights and number plate leds from here:

Lisa, that means one bulb for £14 ait? [smilie=holyshit.gi:[/QUOTE]

Yep - but well worth it IMO. I have the solarplexius tints and I couldn't see a thing at night behind me before so it's a great buy for me :). I bought them last year when a pair was £20 - couldn't find the link, was a Japanese company. That link was the only one I could find to them now.

Watch those number plate surrounds - I have them on mine and the gel strip that contains all the emblems comes off in persistent wet weather. I found out after my mate had his drop off.
I ended up putting mine in water in the bath for several hours, peeling them off then sticking them on with super glue after drying. I did email the seller on ebay and he said he would look into improving them. Just beware!
