    Hi all,

    Probably covered a lot of times. But im not happy woth my lights at the moment. Covered in scratches and filth on the inside. Also dropped a 501 bulb in the one too. Im looking to get new ines. I what does everyone recommend. Ive seen some halo ones i like the look of on ebay for £160 but not sure on fitting.
    If you recommend OEM headlight units can someone provide me the OE numbers for them or tell me where i can get them from for a good price.
    Also does anyone have a removal guide for the headlights as i found one but no pictures work anymore.

    OEM.
    Can probably find a decent pair from eBay or breakers for a good price. Add a HID kit, LED sidelights and a light tint to the front. Sorted.
    Four screws. Two top, two bottom.

    Thanks, does the bumper have to come off to get to the two bolts at the bottom.
    Ive looked on ebay could only find crap used ones.

    Yes, bumper off.
    Make sure if you do get a pair second hand that all four tabs for the screws are still intact.

    Thanks for the help. Any reason why you say no to the halo’s? I think they look alright and the projector ones. Im just after something bright as headlights

    They're complete rubbish. Build quality is horrific and light output is woeful. OEM headlamps produce a minimum of twice as much light output.

    I've just replaced both of mine.
    What a difference! So good. Uber reflective. Takes years off the car too.
    Bought brand new genuine headlights.
    Then LED upgrade of all bulbs. Now looks like full HID conversion with no drilling. And bonus is the bulbs are cheaper than standard bulbs.
    Info in my readers ride.
