I know not every-bodies cup of tea,however really fancied a set after seeing some others.

These are Angel Eyes Black so the middle of the lights look darkened.

I had a spare set of back plates and the wiring loom wasn't cut just added to so nothing is irreversible.

The modern human ape by its nature is fundamentally flawed therefore why would that species allow a few of its kind to take charge of the rest??

I've fitted these to mine (full tutorial in the tech archive) and I can confirm the benefits at night. So long as your headlight relay and charging system is working correctly, and you've fitted some Oseram Nightbreakers, these are a massive improvement over the standard lights. The projector beam really lights up the road well and you can see street signs for what feels like miles.

Here's a link to the headlights that are fitted.

http://www.ebay.co.u...uwAAOSwGtRX0EU1

They vary greatly in price and from the addresses they are delivered from.
I just typed in Angel Eyes Black E32-E34
Basically I paid about £160 including the postage

They are aftermarket however the quality is quite good and to be fair they get cut about anyway.
They are dual LHD-RHD fitting so need to be set up for the side of the road you drive on, which is just a case of unscrewing and twisting the body to move them to RHD.

The T5 halogen bulbs were replaced White T5 LEDs with side facing bulbs as they gave a better light spread around the ring and being a white car fitted in with the look.
The ring bulb holders did get a slight modding so the bulbs sat at 90 degrees within the ring.
Again you just have to remember they ain't fitting how you want unless you are prepared to nip and tuck where required.

As for getting then in the car it is exactly as per the post within the Tech Forum.

Whilst admiring the picture of the new lights there I suddenly wondered what a Capri would look like with 6 headlamps rather than 4. Presumably it would mean fabricating extension backplates and covers using 2 sets of originals, changes to the bonnet lip and making up a narrower grille. Wonder if anyone has ever tried it.
