    Default Auto Headlights

    Hi All,
    Thought about upgrading to the Auto Headlights. What do I need to do it basically? Is it as simple as just changing the headlights switch unit or is there the installation of sensors etc?
    I've got a Vectra 1.9 CDTi SRi 2004, obviously half canbus.
    Reading some other posts the 03 cant handle it but some others can... I have the wiper feature as my wiper speeds change automatically depending on rain. Dunno about lights though :/

    Why do you need a new screen? Is there anything special about it as my secondhand sensor came with the window mount ready to silicon/bold on.
