So.. I was planning a lot of modifications to my Up! but then I realised that none of my ideas would come to life if I don't have a blog or something so I decided to make a new thread about it, and here it is!

First, I saw someone install Philips Silver vision indicator bulbs and I just HAD to have them. Unfortunately they were impossible to find around here (I hate to wait for orders...) so I thought I'd try out Osrams Diadem bulbs instead. Here's the result. I still think they're too orange though...

Original:


Really easy to change. Just a little twist and change it.


After: (maybe I have to take new pictures...)




So what do you think? Good - bad?

And another rather funny thing I saw just yesterday, the first day it rained since I got my Up!.



They mounted it wrong! :) The dealer got a little phone call from me afterwards and they will fix it immediately, hehe.

First off I just ordered a pair of headlight brows to get it look a little bit more angry. Then I've been looking around for either 16 inch or 17 inch alloys. I'm not really sure which size I want yet and neither if I want them in black, white or just ordinary color. I'm really into AEZ Valencia Dark at the moment but also som nice black Dotz... can't decide! :(
Other plans are also a new exhaust system so it sounds better. Probably with duplex ending. I've been in touch with a swedish company for custom made.
But these plans are the more or less the same what you guys already done so I have a few extras.
I want to do something to the grill. Cut it out to get more GTI feeling and some net. Or order a bodykit. I really like the little horns on the bumper and would like to make them stand out more.

I will probably do more things but my wife tells me to slow down :D

My neighbour got home with some rear light tint so I decided to have a little fun with the Up! at the same time. I only did the clear/white area so it would have the same look as Golf IV GTi had and I'm not really sure if I like it or not. What do you think - keep or clean it?

The indicator lights are no problem, it's even better in strong sun, but the reverse lights is very dark so that is one reason to take it off.

I thought it would blend in very well with the black colour but I'm not convinced.

Now people know how it looks like to tint the indicator area though!

Yea, I wrapped mine in orange for a while while had US spec side repeaters, it's a subtle touch that makes a big difference..
Was thinking red next!
