    To fit the Vx Xenon lights you'll need to twiddle a bit with the wiring and also have a Tech 2 on the car to enable them to work properly. See merikiito's How 2 thread which explains it all.

    Now found out that its a different story for facelift Xenons as you need a new plug for the passenger side light. VX do not do this separately so it means you need a wiring a complete harness which is £'s! At the moment I working on sorting the issues for "Lump" one of the members on here. We hope to acquire a plug from a VX breakers off a facelift VXR as this is the only car which has the standard Xenons fitted as standard. Others usually have AFL Xenons. Will do a how 2 on facelift Xenons once we have solved the issues
