Sg- pm me if you want the badges.

Had my rear brake pads changed today, so took the opportunity to apply some brembo decals to my freshly painted calipers. Bit sad I know but hey makes me happy!

Fronts







Rears,

Nothing wrong with them, they look great! I have been thinking how to do mine. They are still silver.
Silver currently? Are you changing the colour ? Silver would look good with a black brembo brake decal maybe?

Got me thinking, I'm not sure if they are painted or need to be as they are straight out the factory so nice and clean still in Silver. Shall be putting these bad boys on this month when it is backfrom the bodyshop:)

Close, but I wanted the sticker curved, as suits the calipers more. Straight wouldn't work so well due to the smaller face of the calipers.

Don't get caught out like me. Price is for 1 decal, not a pair so first time I ordered got one front and one back! Size and curve is perfect for the standard calipers.

Yes, seen that. It's a chap from Malawi, and he's been posting on my thread on babyrr. He thinks his lights were the test set and they've had them a long time, but do look great now. He's not got them back yet fully assembled. They are based in Italy so you'd need to send your lights to them. Not sure if I'd fancy that!

I'm sure someone in U.K. I'll be able to convert full led now or soon if not.

Have you got a full led set to convert?

Will look good. If caliper nice and new I'd leave them. Could add a black decal? What are you having done at the body shop if car so new?

This photo makes it really obvious, this is when I got it back the first time from the bodyshop. I'm still not happy with other parts of paintwork. In the showroom on collection, it had a scratch on the bonnet that has been painted really well since and a few other bits where the paint finish was not acceptable that still need to be corrected. Being a white car I'm so glad I noticed the initial scratch.:(

Wow, that photo really shows the paint mis match! Sure it's not so noticeable in normal light so good spot. Hopefully you'll get it sorted. Presumably they will have to blend into the front door and rear wing to prevent the same again. Is that from an LR dealer? Much planned for her apart from the alloys?

Should add details of where I got my lights converted really if anyone interested.

http://www.rcautomotive.co.uk

Apparently have converted lights ready to go, or can convert your lights as they did for me. Great service and lights work perfectly thus far. Over the moon with them. Nice chap and easy to deal with.

Mine were xenon so not sure if he does the full led lights but contact details on site if you want to ask.

Well dispite the horror stories decided to have a go at fitting my interior led bulb set I got off eBay a year or so ago! Yellow ish interior lights look so dated!

Foot wells were a doddle. No covers. Bulb out, bulb in. Excuse cleanliness of carpets!





Rear boot next. This had festoon type bulb and again popped out easily. Just getting polarity right only issue, so took a couple of attempts!



Then left it a day and decided to tackle the rear roof lights. Little bit trickier! Managed to get one out ok, and sorted. Second one managed to break the clip. This said so **** tight even without clip it's not going anywhere! So rears done.



Just front centre dome to go now..... left this another day. Read some real horror stories on this bad boy! Had a dabble with a screw driver, wasn't budging! Left another day. Watched the powerful U.K. Video again where it just popped out, and tried with a thin trim tool. First time popped out straight away, result! Bit of an iffy angle but swopped bulbs over in ten mins and after opening and closing the doors a few times and arming and disarming the alarm all worked perfectly.





Happy days. All visible bulbs now a nice bright white led. Going to have a go at the vanity mirrors another day but will be getting a few spare fuses before attempting!

Hi yes, this was taken care of by the dealer and in the daylight it is less obvious but has a more creamy white. I can spot extremelyslight differences in colour so it would always bug me. But having to wait for so long has hampered the progress on everything.

I bought the SE Tech as I thought I was going to buy a motorbike as well and didn'trealiseI'd start to alter it.Things to do:
I have blue LED interior light bulbs, Sports foot pedals tofit.
I'm not sure if I should colour code the bumpers and side trim white or replace the sides with white dynamic body-trim sides.
Or keep the trim black and add the side steps as having them next to black would probablywear better.
I might look into how much the Overfinchkit would cost but not sure if I would prefer Overfinch or keeping it Range Rover.
Maybe loweringsprings and chip it?
All good fun :)

Hi, thanks for trying. I got my Evoque back Friday and the door matches great but not the small dent in the paint. Luckily didn't dent the door but more upheaval waiting for it to be fixed ˜ž
