Re: What have you just bought?

A new headlamp unit for my car - £680

Would have been cheaper to buy a torch and a load of blu-tak

Re: What have you just bought?

it's an Impreza SnoopZ

They're factory HIDs and one of the seals failed so condensation has fouled the unit. Just out of warranty too

Wow! I only paid £200 odd for a full aftermarket Bi-Xenon upgrade for my car.

That's dips and mains in Xenon HID both sides. Bulbs and balasts.

Thank you kind sir, likewise yourself

It is a bit of a riot up here, these Scots take their Hogmanay celebrations very seriously and give themselves 2 days to recover.

It's a dry night for me as I'm the designated driver, but that suits me, I prefer to have a cast iron excuse not to get plied with too much drink when I'm at a big party. And besides, there's a bottle of 22-year-old single malt awaiting my return home.

Re: What have you just bought?

I just bought a Samsung Slim Portable Blu-Ray Writer (SE-506) for my laptop as my built in DVDR doesn't write anymore, but reads.

Install the PowerDVD Software it now plays 1080p blu-ray films

Re: What have you just bought?

Bosch titanium 3mm drill for £5.95 to help to do the b'stard job from hell on the car. Trying to drill out a steel rivit in situe (because another bolt won't come undone to get the lower wishbone out) that seems to be made from Gundanium alloy. It's so hard my normal drills won't touch it.

It took 15 minutes with the angle grinder to get the head off the damn thing. Unbelievable.
