    They look good !!!! I'm interested.

    How have you fitted them ? i.e. location, have you removed the headlight or bumper ?

    We need better pics !!!! preferably with them switched off, so we can see how you've done it.

    Just popped outside and took some more from the phone
    They are very easy to fit. They fit between the headlight and the bumper.
    loosen the headlight screws on top of the headlight. Squeeze between the gap and then tighten back down the headlight.

    wiring goes direct to the multi plug socket on the back of the headlight unit.

    easiest and cheapest mod i've done. great visual impact. Work as daytime running lights for the front only.
    All other lights work ok. it doesn't interfere with the Check Control system.

    Happy days. All for under £10

    ebay link at the beginning of this thread. very easy to do.
    you will need the following tools

    8mm socket ( headlight )
    Torx screwdriver for the 4 screws that run along the top of the bumper into the slam panel
    Soldering iron and solder
    Voltage tester

    If any one needs help, let me know

    This sounds good and quite straightforward...(apart from the electrical and soldering bit lol).

    The way you have set them up........ do they go on with the sidelights, or are they permanently on when the ignition's on ?

    permanently on when ignition comes on.
    If you wire to the side lights, when you turn ignition off they will flash because of the check control system, pulsing for 30 seconds after the power has been turned off. Also, when you start the car they will flash unless you turn your sidelights on.
    So not advisable
