So, today is the day! It's a bit like ChriSTmas day for me at the moment!

 

As some of you already know, I'm trading in my ST185 STealth for an ST250 STealth, so I've been up since 6, even though I don't collect until 12!

 

This afternoon will mainly consist of cleaning and changing bulbs, oh and putting in my club stickers!

Well, Who would have thought that buying another ST could be so exciting?

I've only done 20 miles so far, but I'm impressed so far!

 

I've already installed LED puddle lights, Osram Cool Blue cornering bulbs and of course, FocusSTOC decals!

You think so? I can't say I'd noticed actually. Even if the chocks are still in there they're staying in as is rides better than the 18's! 

I was worried about the ride, so I drove to the garage along some rough country lanes to get a feel before heading back the same way in the new one. The new car feel may have affected my opinion, but it certainly wasn't any worse!

when i changed my st last year i went from 18's to 19's but was a bit worried about the ride, but as you say it rides better on them. the mrs reckons she needed a sports bra in the old car. :rofl:

How difficult was it to change the puddle lights and cornering bulbs?

Nice car.

 

As above, how difficult to change the cornering bulbs? Is it a headlight unit out job? As there doesn't look much room under the bonnet.

 

PS. That colour does look nice with the black 19's.

Headlights are only held in with 2 screws so not difficult.
