My man came round yesterday to fit the headlights - it took him longer than expected, but he got there...

Went with 6000k HIDS for dipped beam, 6000k LEDs for main beam and 6000k LED fogs.....All coded in with no errors, level adjust from light switch dial is working, albiet a bit jerky compared to oem. Beams also auto level on start up.

I'm really pleased with the colour of the 6000k's, light output is a world apart from the halogens, main beam in particular is like a new sun rising! Dipped beam feels like a narrower spread than before, but I can put up with that for the improved light levels, might have to get the turning fog lights coded in...

'Scuse the sh1tty photos - I really don't know how BrennanF30 and others get such good shots uploaded.

This made me laugh so much yes I am Irish, no I don't use a super 4K potato

You might be suprised to know that I use a rather humble mobile phone to take my photos, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge

Yeah BrennanF30 takes them with his phone and spends about 2 hours adding after effects to his images to make his car look remotely good!

Are these the only LED's that will fit these headlights (Main and dipped beam): http://www.horizonleds.co.uk/headlam...-led-headlight

What about these or are LED's (http://www.horizonleds.co.uk/headlam...en-4000-lumens) or are LED's with any type of heatsink other than the braided copper not fit at all?

Thinking of going all LED, but I'm unsure.

Don't bother buying anything from them. I've had a really terrible experience buying overpriced, but terrible quality stuffs from them. Once they have taken your money, they won't even put an effort to reply your email or enquiry regarding with delivery or products. You will also lose delivery fee when ordered and also postage fee when return the item and take ages ages to get the refund.

Apologies for the lack of photos guys. I've had the car back to garage to check the installation as the angel eyes and signature line still go off when dipped beam is on, I'm now thinking they may need coded?
Anyway, I'm still pleased with them as they make the car look a lot better and the light output from the HID is worlds apart from the halogens.
Managed to get a couple of quick photos on the way out of the door this morning
