    i've been deliberating whether to go for the ccfl rings in the OEM lamps or go for the replacement units with the projectors and just came across these as i was browsing around.

    Cool, they look nice. I bet it looks quite mean at night with all the rings on:) No fogs on the Ms so can't add those

    Looking at the front of your car, i see you have removed the orange indicator lens but did not fit the white lens ( at £90 i am thinking twice on this option)

    It looks good but does it work ok??

    as in does it emit the light bright enough ??

    a photo at night with your lights on are in order i think.. B-)

    Hi stevie_a

    The head lights were fitted at the same time, they are complete replacements from eBay...Item number: 230410167841

    All I changed were the bulbs for Chrome, they passed the MOT last year...

    May just try a night time photo...when the weather settles... :ymblushing:

    Same lights but not chrome! The change with these projector lights is the difference between night and day. Bought mine through Simon at JustRoadster.com. Cost about £250 for the units including the main bulbs. Switched mine for chromed indicator bulbs for a nicer look!

    Question :

    My car does not have front fog lights, is it a case of just buying a switch with front and rear and the fog lights

    and the wires are all sitting behind the switch and fog light blank plates?

    or will i have to wire it all up?

    There is a good chance that all the wiring is in place (I think the cars have a standard wiring loom), have a look behind the blanking panels where the fog lights sits, the wires should be there.

    If the wiring in place, it is just a case of adding a switch & lights etc.
