they light the road up great now, the lights are out of a punto mk2 and then converted them to HID\'s.

i borrowed the tester they use for MOT\'s to check the beam pattern and set them all up with that.

Post by: karl_tate on June 27, 2008, 05:21:38 PM
they are 8000k and the bulb fitment is H7 which is the standard fitment size for the punto lights.
