    I can answer this....... A LOT, essentially its an extra pair of fogs, extra set of rings, then there's the wiring work, plus 2 sets of HID's to go in, thats it I think providing you dont mess anything up as that would mean buying more lol

    it is a different car , there is a bit of work you need to do before you fit the insignia parts , ( and a clutch lol ) , but it worth it

    UP DATE

    I fitted the paddle clutch and it had not slipped once
    when back to MW Performance had it on the rollers and after a small adjustment ran spot on and preformed as expected

    353 BHP / 566 Nm
