I fitted these today to my 2.5 during a club Tech-Day meeting. The instructions are in English (of a sort) as well as German now, and taken with the information in other reviews it was easy to work out what to do. When the kit arrived the lamp holders were the wrong way round in their surrounds but is was a simple matter to reverse them and then they fit like a glove with no sloppiness and no need for double sided tape etc.. The wiring was less easy to install. Having identified the plug and socket carrying the wires needing the "current thieves" fitting it was quite awkward to get the plug appart and to crimp the "current thieves" into the attached wires - the problem being that there is very little slack in the original cables and even less room to work!

Despite this the work would have taken about 30 minutes had it not been for the fact that the connector to the red "current thief" was badly assembled. It took three attempts to get a good connection because part of the insulator was getting trapped between the two metal parts of the spade connector.

I would advise anyone fitting these units to pre check the orientation of the bulb holders in their surrounds and the allignment of the connectors in all of the cable ends before starting the job.
