That's very true Gaz - perhaps if Matt modified his statement to the "best Mk1 827 SLi" that would be almost guaranteed to be accurate! :wink: :D

The 827 is looking good Matt, are you using white LED bulbs in the tail lights?
Cheers,
Dave

They look a little pink to me Matt, might be how i've got my monitor set though.

I use red LEDs in mine from :

https://www.classiccarleds.co.uk/

During changeover of the bulbs on my old Coupe, right hand cluster has red LED bulbs, left cluster still on filament bulbs, sidelights only.

If you look at the red puddle lamp in the drivers door, that has a whilte LED bulb, you can see the pink effect from it. :wink: :D

Dave

The LED headlamp bulbs are well worth it Matt!

Image

Image

Three 800s there, all after checking alignment. From the left, new ebay cheapy "Xenon look" halogens, centre 2 year old LED bulbs and on the right, Osram Nightbreakers (2 months ish old). All reflectors/lenses in good condition and alignment checked on the same MoT approved beamsetter before the photos.

Easy to see which performed best with the most definite beam pattern! :wink: :D
Cheers,
Dave
