I didpost if it will be available for the Kuga, but no reply as of yet. If they don't maybe ifwe get enough interest maybe they will do it? As I think it could really set it off as a cool Kuga in the cool blue!?

Hi Daisbuys, really like the look of the SMD upgrade. Are you still doing it for the Kuga? Imay beinterested in having mine decked out in blue, but am worried about the warranty being voided etc. Are there any issues with this?

Looking at Daisbuys profile they've not been online since: 22 Mar 2010 at 4:49pm you can try sending them a PM to see if it triggers them into coming back but I wouldn't hold yer breath.

The name of the compnay who fit/fitted the smd lighting is Profile Auto Evolution- based in Stockport

http://www.profile-automotive.co.uk/

Not sure whether or not they are still in business or doing the SMD's since the last time I spoke to the owner Gary was when I had my ST back in 2009 (incidentally - I'm 99% sure that the second pic down at the top of this thread was my ST). IF he's still offering this service then its a nice modification to have done - and certainly something I'd have on my next Ford!

Thanks Chaps, will PM and see what response I get if any? What are your thoughts/suspicions on whether this would void any warranty?
