Looking good mate.. Like the look of the dipped lights without the plastic shield.. Is it not an MOT issue?

Help with a link on where you sourced yours..

A guy/shop on eBay called ggpautostyling sells them. Don't think they have any at moment. Bummer is they use standard lamps not led lamps. Also you can't use HID's with them either, they get too hot for the angel eye.

I like the look of the headlights but not keen on the angel eye bit.

That's a bargain cause they are over 150 new and the guy on eBay wants 90

Looks good! You won't know how well they perform at night yet?

Just wondering how they compare to the originals for lighting up the road?

I was told HIDs are actually cooler than normal bulbs because they draw less power or something... Although the ballasts get redderz...
But they wont be near the ring
