As most of you who have been following my build thread will know, about a month ago I decided to treat the motor to some new headlights

You'll also know the amount of trouble I was having with the company after they took my money but failed to tell me till a while later that the headlights were out of stock and had no idea when they would be getting anymore in :angry:


Well now I can happily say that the day is finally among us and after a very.. very very.. very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very long wait..

My new headlights have finally made they're way from doichland today :D :D


After hearing a knock at the door from dhl man I bolted downstairs to be greeted by a box big enough to comfortably fit a mangled body or two in ;)

And inside that box was smaller box

And inside that box was two smaller boxes

Posted Image

And finally upon opening these boxes I find this

Shrink wrap removed and I am left with this thing of beauty :wub: :wub: :wub:
Posted Image


Immediate thoughts are they look really sexy and they quality seems decent enough so far


I've finally been out to fit em, and after a bit of a faff removing the old headlights in the dark.. Here they are up n running :D

Thought you would be ;)


If you was to get em though I'd say give FK a wide berth n get em from german ebay instead. Not that you can get em from FK now anyway as they are already out of stock again.


They a bit funny trying to get em back in the car but nothing a little giggle won't solve.

Also getting the backing on em is really hard cause its a very tight fit trying to clip it in.

Put as far as fitting the bulbs n transplanting the leveling motor over its a right doddle.


I've gotta whip em back out tomorrow as after fitting em n closing the bonnet, I noticed the breather hose on the old head lights units n remembered the new units dont have em.

Few second job of transplanting the hoses over onto the new headlights n job done.

Id take it to make sure the beam alignment is right aswel :) when i fitted my angel eyes they didnt give a very good feild of view mainly cause they were pointing down towards the ground lol always worth just getting it checked. Gotta love angels eyes though :)

Just been out n took a load more photos

This is high beam

Heres the beam patterns from inside

Low

High

I think one of me high beam bulbs may be in the wrong way round or aimed downwards, as when crouched down looking at em dead on, one is a lot brighter than the other. Thing is with these headlight units theres no notch for the h1 bulbs so I cant see a way of making sure its in the right way up.


With the h7 bulb there is a notch, though it is actually upside down compared to the oem head light unit


You can see what i mean about the high beam in this photo

As Dan says, I need to take it to get em aligned properly
