Hi!

My name is Ivo, I live in the Netherlands in a little dorm, in a suburb of Amsterdam, called Amstelveen. At the moment I am studying medicins in Amsterdam.

Me and my boyfriend Jordy - he lives in the Hague - have two cars, a Peugeot 306 Cabriolet(click for photo)for the sunny days and a VW High Up. The Peugeot is the car I use most of the time. Jordy uses the High Up! to go to work for aprox. 70 kms a day.

Config of our High Up:

Dark Silver
60 hp, bmt
5 doors
Drive package (Cruise control, PDC and Board Computer Plus)
Executive package (maps & more and climatic airconditioning)

First week I fitted in Ring Ultima Xenon bulbs, perfect white/blueish halogen bulbs that give lots and lots of light. Also mounted the original armrest between the two front seats.
After that went to garage to change VAGCOM setup:
cornering lights
anti-carjacking
changed l/100km to km/l
coming home light

To do list:
chrome indicator bulbs
LED license plate light
DRL white (no led)
Fog lights white (no led or xenon)
short antenna (Suzuki SX4 antenna)
tinted windows (back doors, will be done next week)

Some pictures:

















Armrest:





We have the car now for over two weeks, until now drove 2600kms (1600 miles) with it. We're very pleased with the car, drives smootly, it is quiet inside at high speed, has good seats and great audio (6 speakers). We love the economical fuel consumption (1litre / 21kms) as well, and we're satisfied with colour pick too!

What do the cornering lights and coming home lights do?

Thanks!

Cornering lights: if lights are turned on, if speed is lower then 30 km/h, when steering left or right, the foglight left or right turns on too. Also when waiting for traffic light with indicator on, then the foglight on that side burns too to illuminate the corner.

Coming home lights: when you just turned off your vehicle, you pull the stick for high beam, and you open the drivers door, all the lights will turn on. When you close the car with your remote, the lights automatically will turn off after 10 seconds. When you do not close the doors, the lights will automatically turn off after 30 seconds.

Those lights are amazing, I have got Osram Nightbreakers but yours definitely look whiter in the pictures.
