    I can get a set on a courier up to you within the week?
    Understand if you would rather not the hassle tho.

    About a 1 on the retard scale if you get a complete unit from Christian...


    Slightly more complex for a full DIY install.. (I did it on my old Lasers headlights, I'm just not game enough to attempt it on these... Plus mum won't let me break in the new oven with my headlight)

    are you referring to the projectors into the headlight housing? if so, there's a guide in the guide section..

    for installation, just remove the headlights and install it..

    If it is too stressful to get done in limited time Christian I understand and can wait.

    Only after low beam HID also.

    my question about the headlight quality is also for Roy, if you can please provide me a photo of its quality..

    this will determine if its a yes or no for me to go ahead with the retrofit
