they are lockwood ones but they are white not silver but still look nice, took her out for a spin today as sun was out and i loved every minute of it and come back with a big smile on my face :lol:  just got to give her another clean now as got loads of bugs on front yet again....because its so clean i think they say hey there is a clean one and jump out i front of me LOL :lol:  :lol:  :lol:


Cheers for the info.. I might get some silver ones and take a look...see what they look like fitted.   How easy is it to fit the middle gauge facias.. the oil guage / petrol gauge have small studs holding them on.. do u have to undo those studs to fit the lockwoods?  (The rev and speedo just unscrew so they ae easy by the looks of it)  Thanks mate.

I bet your five is already gleaming again by now!  :lol:  liking the sound of the new toy on its way...keep us posted ....sounds cool!  8)

You don't have to remove the actual gauge to change it, just the needle. If i remember correctly on the smaller guages the dials are held in place by something sticky.  :?:

 When you havent driven it for a while..  u realise how much you've missed driving it!  bet your 5 looks stunning in all this sun  8)  I used some Autoglym today.. the gloss protecting one..  left it on 1hr and seemed like glass afterwards..   have always buffed it straight off without leaving it on before...  I knew I should have read the instructions b 4!  :lol:  good stuff.
