OK, so I've got an EP2 (2004 Sport) as most of you will know by now :p

Anyway, I'm looking to do some upgrades here and there, but as I've not passed my test and only just turned 24 last month, I can't really afford (insurance-wise) to do any performance shit... yet. So, this is my list of stuff I'd ideally like to do/get done first.

Replacement boot lid/hatch as I dented mine on a stupid Transit van ¬_¬ but I think I've got that covered, just need to double-check the guy still has it. £80+ Delivery (think it was £30?)

Spoiler from a Type-R for about £50 delivered if I'm patient on eBay.

Seats (preferably from a Type-R) £200 delivered - again, if I'm patient off eBay...

Black or smoked rear lights for about £60 dfelivered (or about £3 if I just get a pair of black tights from tesco, haha)

HID bulbs for £65 delivered from that JDM guy, plus I'll have to find some matching sidelights to 'avoid looking gay' haha so any help with the sidelights would be great. Think I'll go 4 or 5k for the headlights?

Improved brakes, ideally straight off of a Type-R, no idea on the prices though...

Oh and I'm toying with the idea of saving up to have it sprayed a brilliant white as I reckon it'll look amazing, not to mention rare as fook! though I've already been told by people on here that it'll be £600 to a grand for that shit! :(

So, what do you lot think - Prices reasonable? Or am I looking to spend a lot more/less on any of those. I'm just using those figures as a guide, plucked out of my arse, haha!

For the hids, if you get bi-xenon they have a built in sidelight and a relay so itl save you hassle of getting seperate sidelights, the only thing is they are more expensive than stand alone sides.

Id say get 5k though, 5.25 i believe is natural daylight, so thats the most useable light.

Any links to info about those bi-xenon things (preferably ones to fit the EP) or even what to search for on ebay.

Also, does anyone know what the engine code is on a 2004 Sport?

Bi xenons are not available after market for anything other than H4s , they dont have built in side lights and the best colour for ultimate road light is 4.3k
but yes they are more exspensive than singles , as true bixenons have built in solenoids to pull the globe back and forth to replicate H4 twin filament bulbs.

How much are we talking here, and surely it would be easier to get those HID lights from JDM for £65 and find a similar sidelight? Aren't the EP lights H4's anyway?
