You'll need to get yourself a cable (check DIY section)

The H7 are fantastic, although I believe they've stopped producing Diamond Vision I think. I believe they were renamed to extreme vision or something along those lines. I managed to find a seller (opie oils) which sold Diamond Vision though.

I had them on my old fiesta (also H7) which lasted me a year before I changed car, but the difference in brightness while driving at night and white colour is brilliant.

I've replaced both dipped beam and high beam with these!
Thanks for your info, there are plenty of diamond vision bulbs on ebay from many sellers. I will have to look in to this cable to remove errors.
