Default Grille & Spots .. - 30th June 2014, 03:12 PM

Looking to get rid of my spotlights , and replace the aero grille . Couple of questions,

Can I simply unplug them and get no bulb warnings etc ?

Some people like spots, not my culpa , whats 2 black spots / brackets and an aero grille with holes worth ? Hoping to recoup the cost of a grille ! Going to do splitter / air ducts bottom grille at the same time whilst the bumper is off ...

Just unplug if you don't want them and unbolt the brackets. Can leave the rest intact incase you want the spots back at sometime. Not coded on 2nd Gen so no warnings.

They are wired in to the footwell control module, so if you do take them out, I'd suggest taking everything out so you can sell the complete kit.

Grills usually go for about 30.

If any one is interested I also have a set for sale (just listed today on E Bay but can end listing).

They are Genuine Mini Black backed and include the genuine brackets. Have been on car for only 1500 miles and I would describe them as mint.

Feel free to ask any questions.
