    My new lights (MK3)

    Well, there seems to be a major lack of MK3's on here but hey here goes! I don't know if you all remember this pic....





    Well, I saved up for a bit and had to wait a month or so for the right lights to come up on the bay! I couldn't help noticing a flurry of sh*te quality headlights, with crappy 'yellow' halo rings. So I held out for nearly 3 months until a decent set cropped up, and I knabbed myself these:



    Both are taken in low light, so I apologise for the quality.. it was also taken on my phone :P

    I haven't got round to getting a HID kit yet (The lenses are glass, and HID safe - I checked!) - So I put 2x Phillips 'ice white' bulbs in, £15 a pop!



    Also had to get them aligned at the garage, didn't wanna dazzle everyone!

    So, I know there aren't many mk3's on here but anyway... opinions chaps? £159.99 I paid and I think they transform the front end of my car

    they're angel eyes, not morettes/twin headlamps, so not sure how you mean "original lens fitted on top"...


    I like them Adam0r, what bulbs did you have in your standard headlights in the "before" pic though?

    Sorry, I also have an 'infinity' grille, they're not morettes I can't say I've seen any lights like mine on any astra yet, only the crappy yellow ones! Aaah!

    I had the sidelights that Oddjob is currently selling on the forums, Pete. They were awesome! I gave them to my mate and he put them in his Toyota Hi-Lux Surf

    Edit: The infinity grille *just* nips the top of the angel eyes off, I left it like that on purpose though =)

    Mmm, that's nice. Same grill as me. They look like standard, but have clear circles where the beam is Custom jobby perhaps?

    I wasn't chuffed with how my standards chucked out light either, even with high power bulbs in I want HID's for main/dipped eventually
