Bear in mind the nearside light always looks duller than the offside one due to the beam being biased towards the kerb.
Saying that, a nip to a friendly garage for a beam alignment check won't hurt at all.

Were all the wires plug and play and the bulbs exactly the same?
I'd assume the halos took the place of the side lights?

Yes mate thats correct

Bulbs plug n play the same way, still h1 and h7 fitments and the indicator bulb is a straight swap over aswell

Then theres just load of extra wires that go to the halos and yup they completely replace and act as the side lights.

V-tempted now.
May have to flash the credit card next week while the missus in away in the sun with the out-laws.
Then again just bought a set of window shades, i want the tint effect but with the option to remove when visibility is bad (also no need to tell Mr Insurance Man).-

Special offer until the 28th and cheaper than on eBay. ;)

I thought about getting some of those blinds but the £10 delivery is a bit of a rip off.. Always in 2 minds with rear tinting / blinds as to whether it'll make it look too much like a van.

Looking good with the lights though B)

Now if only the Xenon ones for mine were that cheap in black :(

I wanted a tint effect but without them being permanent.
Should keep my 3 hairy monsters cooler in the summer and allow me to open the rear windows without all the crap blowing in (or out).

Its always advised you get new headlights properly aligned anyway :) it was the same with mine they were dead low aswel but ive found since he done it my main beam seems too high :/ think its the same adjuster screw. Im thinking about getting a set of morette twin headlights anyway :) http://www.morette.c...nufacturer=Ford
