    Nope, I screwed it up pretty badly :p

    You need it to be about 3/4 inch diameter

    Job done.... not to bad... ya want a 25mm auger drill bit for the holes in the headlamp cover, was no problem.

    Finding a pace for the ballast was my only issue... on the drivers side anyway. Happy with the results tho :)

    Nice one, told you it was easy!

    Some people made proper mounts for the ballasts, but to be honest I've just zip tied mine onto the holes on the wing/bonnet surround.

    Is it safe to mount the balasts within the headlight unit?

    Great thread, helped me get mine fitted few years ago - Prob worth putting at the top of this thread that these are now an MOT failure as i found out a few weeks back; due to a change to MOT standrds I believe,

    Cheers
