    What a pig to get to with my bl00dy big hands
    Ended up having to take the airbox out for the drivers side. Passenger side not too bad to get out but a sod to get back in. Sorted in the end and what a difference

    Got These in the end m8. I bought some for my Freelander from him last year with no problems. Arrived in a week and that was over New Year too. Cost £12.99 + £3.99 postage. Do the job

    Thanks for that caterman. These headlights need a shake up, I don't half miss my GSi's Xenons.

    I was infront of a facelift this morning on the motorway and to be honest the facelift's don't look that bright either. Behind the facelift was a Mazda 6, now they are cracking lights.

    I fitted my 'SilverStars" on Friday night. Very pleased, but they really should bundle these bulbs with a pack of elasoplasts!

    I fitted mine the other day, exact same bulbs as Caterman.

    They looks swish when you turn them on!

    Xenon is the gas used to fill the glass bit of the bulbs. It's similar stuff in both lamp types, but they are different types of technology.

    That any help?
