Come on Toby, we're waiting for your prices :)
I'm working it out right now for you guys.

Do you want a price including new Depo's as well?
Cheers :) in my case I don't need new Depos, I'll be sending a pair over to you rolled in about 5 metres of bubblewrap. So, a quote for the conversion including price of projectors, LED rings, brackets, labour etc. And return shipping of course. Thanks

How do you mean? Converting halogen headlights? Or fitting factory Xenons?

Did you PM Mihad1? He fitted factory Xenons on his car that came with OEM Halogens. IIRC he didn't go with levellers or washers. He did some wiring changes, bit of coding and Bob's your uncle.

Hey Toby,

Excellent write up,

Would the same conversion be possible with a regular set of halogen headlights??

Just a thought?

Cheers

Unfortunately not bud. I can't split OEM's as they are permasealed together making it a genuine nightmare!
