What non-performance enhancing mods have you done to your R 2?


Recommended Posts

I am still trying to replicate the dim blindspot monitor lights with LEDs  on the dash in front of the steering wheel.

Many people have made suggestions and cautions about this some of which I have tried without success. Be assured that when I succed I will post a complete How-to document . 

 

Now I would like to see what is behind the blindspot pattern of the glass. Perhaps there is a resistor or bit of circuitry there.

You can't see from the rear of the glass as whatever lights up is enclosed.

 

If anyone has a busted mirror, can you break away the glass & post a photo.

De chromed the mirrors, roof rails, grill and splitter on the barge. 

Looks a totally different animal from a Wagon with Cadiz wheels.  A Transformation imho.

Yeah it’s why I waited when buying for one with the prets to come Up for sale.

 

had only seen pictures of them online before, went to test drive one and it had Cadiz and I almost turned away from it as an option. 

now I’m in love. 😍

Think I’m just an R Fan. Can admire the harder sporty look, lowered, blacked or carbon details……but can also Get the super sober, restrained, under the radar Q Car approach. 
Im looking forward to the Mk8 Wagon hitting the dealerships. Come on!

Fitted some body colour mirrors. 

 

Looks so much neater than the stupid plastic chrome that doesn't match or tone with anything else on the car. After seeing my parked Atlantic Blue 7.5 from a distance with folded mirrors I just thought "spaniel ears" and couldn't then unsee it. So I did the same.
