allright... the pics are up... I still need a pic of the amazing cutoff, but these will have to do for now.


These are the old ones w/ the housing unscrewed.


This is what comes in the box... one lens, bulb, and dustcover for $45


Plugs right in! no aiming or wiring needed!


Plugged and screwed in


housing in. finished look


New look on an old car

Those look really nice. It cleaned up the appearance a bit. I hope you adjust them so they dont blind anyone because they put out a lot more light. Do the high beams when you get a chance. COOL.

Yeah! That's the way!

I agree, do the high beams when you have the time.

Were those halogen sealed beams or not?

nope... I think they might be origional. We haven't bought any since we got it, so the 1st owner must have put them on if they are add ons.

Damn... the difference must be night and day! Is it?

Anyway, if you are thinking of aiming the lights checkout

Are you going to do the high beams as well?

Well dan's website that holson gave you should show you how to lign them up, however if you want to know real quick I can tell you. Get your car 25 feet from a flat wall, measure from the ground to the center of your lights, mark on the wall three inches down from the measurement. Measure the width between the lights and center that on the wall with the center of your car such that they are parallel. The cut off is horizontal, then up to the right at like 20 degrees. Well put the center of the cut off half inch to one inch to the right of center for each light respectively so that you wont cause glare and you can light up the elk on the road. If you have any trouble next time I come through san diego I can help you out. Later.

Hey Man, Looks great, I bet you love the performance on the highway. I would set them down a little more considering you live in the city. I set mine up because I live in elk country, and once you put in the euro lights, man you see them all the time.

As soon as I sell my SLK wheels I am going to put xenons in my car. So if you know anyone that wants slk wheels let me know.
