    Default Astra Coupe - xenons

    I finished fitting the xenons in my coupe today (well almost finished as i've still got the healight washers to retrofit), was supposed to do them yesterday but went to the Rother Valley meet instead. So gave it a quick wash and took a pic as I don't usually get near it that much as its the Mrs's daily driver but that will change in the near future when we find her a new motor...20130408_193459.jpg

    Not a massive amount to honest. I was quite lucky that I found a car with a set of genuine xenons fitted so I got the full set up. Just a matter of cutting the old plugs off the existing loom and soldering the new plug on colour for colour. The rear beam level sensor had the plug already there and the headlight switch just needed swapping over

    Looking good. The Gsi bumper should have been standard. Shark eyes were hard to get hold of when I had an astra coupe (nearly 6 yrs ago)

    You will also need to add in the dash loom to make the rear beam sensor work. The loom from the back only goes as far as the front left kick panel with a blue plug on the end.

    There is nothing on the other side of it. So you need to make up a 7 wire loom, connector all up and then programme the rear sensor with Tech 2/Op-Com.
