    Not thought about LED’s are they still brighter and whiter than halogens, what brightness did you purchase 5000k or 6000k as I thought LED’s were not as bright, would you have a link to a good set as if they fit easier into the light casing then I might consider them. Thanks

    These are the ones I had in my facelift http://www.horizonleds.co.uk/exterio...d-headlight-v2 They fit nicely inside the housing with the cover on.

    I took a few pics of the install.

    After the halogen bulb was removed




    Led bulb in place




    Just before tucking the driver and cable inside the housing




    Once the driver and cable are tucked in, spread the mesh heat sink then replace the cover




    A pretty nice colour match to the drls




    As you can see....A lot brighter than halogens. Not quite the output of hids but not far off and they're instant on...No warm up time like hids




    As you can see in this short video

    Thanks Marco, they look really great and I’ve ordered a set and it also turns out there’s a 35% discount on top so I’m well pleased. I’ll look forward to adding these to the car soon.

    I'm not sure if you've changed bulbs in a facelift yet? It can be a bit tight getting access. The driver's side (in the photos) it the easiest because you can pull the airbox up out of its rubber mountings and swing it out of the way. That's the side I'd do first so you know how everything goes before you tackle the passenger side. That's a little harder to get to. You need to remove the filler neck of the screen wash. Just wiggle it and pull up at the same time and it will pop off. Some have removed the fuse box to gain access but you shouldn't need to. Its a bit tight but there is enough room once the screen wash it out of the way.

    Changed the lights on my car today from old naff Halogens to LED's and what a difference, it's brilliant. The process was extremely straight forward and was exactly how Marco301 explained in his fitting instructions above in the thread. The whole process took 20 minutes and was so worth it, and I totally recommend the LED's as they fit in the light casing so easy with room to spare and are so simple to fit.

    Nice one! Glad you're happy with them. They're a bit on the costly side but better than hids because you rely on them when flashing your lights too so no warm up.
