    if they dont fit you might just have to put some new connectors on yourself, i think they are just superseal plugs so they are not hard to do

    probaly some electrical retailer like maplin or somewhere like that, any waterproof electrical connectors will do matey but if you got superseals then it would match the rest of the cars connectors, i will try and find em for u on the net

    thats the sort of connectors u want matey or something similiar anyway, all you really need is a pai of non insulated crimps and your away, the ones we use at work on the fire engines are made by a company calld AMP if thats any use to you

    Dunsy does the back of the lights look like Darrens pic in his thread? or are they entirely devoid of wires except inside the lights? if the later then they are genuine Vx Xenons and the fun has just begun good news is that I've already done the mod and can advise on what parts you need. However Darrens electrical connectors look fine for the OE wiring loom so if yours is the same why can't you get them to fit.

    Maybe a pic would help.
