    Default Retro fit automatic headlights?

    I had this on my old car, it was great. Can it be retro fitted on Vec C 08. Looked in How2 section but cant see anything. Any help would be appreciated.

    Would need the rain sensor/auto light sensor upgrade, new autoswitch and programming.

    Dont think any modules need changing but certainly would require programming..

    Do a search for rain sensor / auto lights to check out the threads..
    Plasma's Tech2 services are now open and able to provide services

    Is this everything that is needed? Apart from auto headlight switch? Why a new windscreen?

    Thats a preface set up that only does auto lights.

    The sensor you need is one that has 'EX' on it.

    Not sure if you need a new screen if you get the metal bit that is bonded to the screen or not.

    That is the sensor you need and it looks like it has the metal bit that bonds to the screen too.

    I have all the bits but not got it all fitted yet lol.
