The lights look brilliant but I still enjoy blinding people with my Xeons

...ok.so exactly how much technical knowledge do i need when replacing the standard headlights?....as the original headlights have 2 bulbs and the new ones have 3 (inc. halos)..im guessing the outer bulbs are the ones at the bottom tof the standard ones?......there are a set of instructions that show that you have to follow the wires (underneath the sound-deading material..) .....is there a step by step guide or is it REALLY simple?
..bare in mind, i've never really fiddled around with any wires near the engine bay.....

thanks in advance....

....also..do the halos come on with the sidelights?

That would be the side light i'd say then the inner one to that would be the main beam then the upper one to them would be dipped all guess work so i won't be held responsible

fitted my chrome ones in today...a bit tricky (if you dont know what you're doing!)....
also noticed that the halos are not very bright (especially when you have low beams on)


OH and one other thing.....one of the headlights (the driver side) was a funny as in wasnt able to fit flush to the bonnet.it buldges up like its higher.the passenger side one is fine tho. main concern is if any leakage...also i do notice it when im driving that i can actually see the headlight (chrome bit) from the drivers side. anyone else have this problem...or have i just been given a dodgy headlight???

can i just say that these are alot brighter then the phase 1 xenons,and a hell of alot lighter too,as there is no washers,ballasts,motor for the headlight level.
fitting was easy if your good with a spanner,and i found it easy to wire up too.

Has anyone used the extra light yet?

Either as a second Indicator or as something elce?

If so was it a straight wiring job or did the relay for the indicators need upgrading?
