It must be yellow ink Steve,

I was expecting the yolks to be green seeing as how near the chickens are to sources of LHM...

Maybe they will fit then Malcolm as my front has circular cutouts in the black DRL areas for fogs.. It all looks to be about the same size apertures as in the previous model..

So, we may have a deal... :wink:

this is a good game #-o :wink:

looking at your front bumper

it looks like the fog mounting points are at an angle, so

https://www.dropbox.com/s/ee32qtsmekwrj ... 3.png?dl=0
these look more correct for your car

also with the part No. of your bumper , you car comes back as defiantly C1 and not aC1 (B4) which the kit i have is for,

sorry for getting you all excited hun #-o :wink:

Jim hun
in completely :? :? :? :? now

as the part No. on the kit i have comes back in an all family search as to only fit

"1 document(s) found for C1"

doing the same search with the part No. for the front bumper that comes up on your chassis/VIN No. it also comes up with

"1 document(s) found for C1"

although looking at the image for each type ( C1 and C1 (B4) the actual lamp's in the kit i have match the C1 (B4),

so in the words of

http://www.mirror.co.uk/3am/celebrity-n ... ap-5120770

we have a c c c c c conundrum

if i had much hair left i could pull some out #-o :-D :lol: :rofl2: :rofl2:

You're a better man than me Malc, I couldn't find any trace of it on service.citroen.... That must be for a MK1 C1 though, and service.citroen lists the same part number for all Mk1s I think.... :?

i could not find the kit listed except by entering the part No. on the kit i have into a search on service citroen,
