#431980 New Black Headlights Fitted =)

Posted by kpg on Yesterday, 09:54 AM

Interesting. A lot of different shape bulbs come up when you search "12v 2.3w" but the most common seems to be called "G4". I wonder is this the code for the bulb ie. 501, H7 etc. ?

Yeah, no problem, I try to put it up today when I come home from work...if I remember correctly, something is actually writen on the spare bulbs that came with the headlights, maybe it's even the type of the bulbs...I definitely have to have a look at them :)


Thanks very much, look forward to the pics.

I know I'm resurrecting a thread from last year here but I just wanted to ask if the rings in the headlights look as white in real life as they do in these pics? From the stock pics on the website it actually looks quite orange but yours look like ice white?

Sweet, thanks for the info Lenny. I'm imagining my install will look like the first pic in your guide. I'm actually ok with how that looks if I'm honest.

I just can't wait to have my dash completed with a nice head unit and matching fascia.

After changing the centre console to the mk2.5 style I couldn't put the new fascia on as I have the square head unit at the minute, the silver carbon effect is lighter on the mk2 than the mk2.5 and is the curved cutout.

Wow your bulbs for the rear are bright and footwells. What you got fitted?


The rear lights are genuine Ford RS LED units with normal red bulb for brake and silvatech for indicator.

The footwell lights are 30cm 5050 LED strips from eBay.

Next thing now will be an ST spoiler I think. I can't seem to find any good pedal covers anywhere, metal ones, anybody have a link to some ?

I've got Santa bringing me a Pioneer AVH-X2600BT head unit for Crimbo so excited about that.

Going to purchase myself a set of door sill plates too next time I get paid.

Can't really think of anything else at this point in time. Just really enjoying the car at the minute.

Got the lights fitted, a lot easier than I thought. The hardest part was removing and putting back together the trim in the boot. Wiring was simple, match up the colours and pick a black wire for the ground. There's two grounds already present in the MK2 wiring, one for each bulb (break and indicator) but the MK2.5 looms share one earth wire. So it doesn't matter which black you chose to use as the earth wire.

Here's a pic of the way I wired the lights up:

All in, I think the lights cost me £130 which isn't bad.

£80 for the lights
£32.68 for one of the looms
£20 for the MK2.5 plugs from breakers.

Looking excellent mate,
If you get the time to piece a guide together would surly help alot of others,
An ST spoiler with clear smoked brake light would complete the rear end,
Perhaps pick one up in the new year,


Yea I plan to do that. I'll get part numbers and stuff but I'm surprised how easy it actually was. Can't wait to get them both on and working.

So that's it working, so happy it worked!

Here's a close up of where I spliced:

You can see from the pic above that I've left my standard bulb holders on there and just tucked them away.

It is literally that easy. I'll prob do a guide at some stage with part numbers and stuff at a later date.
