    looks good,

    why didnt you just take the bumper of to fit them? only 4 screws and some clips?

    I would say xenon effect mate.. the bulbs are standard items but it does give the effect of xenon.. Heres a pic of my old motor with sharkeyes in the dark.. the blue was coming from white LED side lights..

    they are the xenon style lights but with normal bulbs fitted, if you fitted a HID kit then would be the proper thing,

    They say they are Xenon because they look identical to the Gsi Xenon upgrade headlights, mine are genuine Xenons and look identical to those at first glance. Only way you can tell is to look at the back of them and it's very apparent then that they are copies, proper Xenons use a different wiring harness so the OE Xenons have some odd connections on the rear. I also seem to think the OE Xenons have a non removeable orange indicator lens, you can't convert them with silvertec bulbs as the OE indicator bulb is very odd, the copies might be able to use silvertec bulbs, I can't say without seeing one close up.

    Mine on main beam
    52 Astra G 1.8, 18" Mille Miglia alloys, 325mm Brembo 4 pot conversion, Coupe leather interior, Raid strut brace, Whiteline rear ARB, Irmscher bits (skirts, Carbon steering wheel, Bonnet extension, M3 mirrors, boot & roof spoiler), Reiger Rear Diffuser & Front Bumper, Koni Adj. dampers, 35/30 Vogtland springs, Duplex quad exit ASCAR stainless exhaust.
