This is NOT a one hour job and it is NOT a DIY job.
The quality if the headlights are good, except for a few things. The balls on the supplied motor arm has not the same shape as the original and has a very tight fit into the original bracket. Be careful not to destroy the plastic lining of the original bracket. The lamps need a lot of adjustment as from the factory they are pointing up in the air.
The big problem is refitting the lids and if you read the other reviews here, only one or to have managed to do so.
I finaly had to get it done by a garage with experience mounting these headlights. They did some violent twisting and now they are OK.
It must be possible to make lamps with a better fit!
Editors Note: As we have said before, unfortunately this is as good as it gets. So many cars are different. What you don\'t see here are reviews from all the customers that had no problem! We sold 158 sets of these lights last year, with so few reviews/complaints, we can only assume that the vast majority were happy with the fit. We\'ve had cars in the workshop where the lids dropped straight on, and others that have been a mile out. On our own car, one lid was so far out we thought we would never get it to fit, tried a \'new\' lid and it fitted first time. To look at the two lids, you could not see any difference! Another customer came to us with a lid that wouldn\'t fit at all, we thought it must have been a problem with the cage, so swaped it for another (from a different batch) and it was identical. Having said all that, we\'ve never had one that we could not get right, its just that some take longer and need more fettling than others.
