    Depo Sharkeyes vs Vauxhall Sharkeyes?

    Hi all,

    I am looking at some Depo Sharkeyes at the moment, H7 H1 fitment.

    Are they any good? Is the beam the same as the vauxhall beam etc?

    Thanks for any information!

    Should all be the same but are you sure they are H7 and H1 as I always thought the orgionals were H7 and D2S and the aftermarket were twin H7's

    Thats what I thought, but I emailed the seller and he replied they were H7 H1 and made by Depo!

    Heres a link:

    I am unsure about buying Depo again, as my current Depo headlights aren't the same as the Vauxhall version beam wise, hence this thread

    Thanks for your help

    I guess the DS2 wiring makes no difference if fitting HIDs?
    Whats the wiring like for the sides + indicators

    What did you have to rewire? Also, what are the beams like? Is there just a straight edge at the top, level all the way around?

    What is the light output like? I had projectors before in my angel eyes, and found them rubbish, so hoping these are better!

    Sorry for the questions, but you will be a godsend if you can answer them

    Thanks!

    All different it has a different plug so will not fit the standard wiring loom without soldering easy enough though DS2 uses the same ballast just different plug for the xenon unit, you will need retaining rings for the DS2 and indicator bulbs as they are different ones all can be got from VX though The angle eye's i had where not bad but i've got a lot better lightout put through these

    Thanks for that!

    I think I will order myself a set! Now I have to get some D2S HID's, as I only have H7's
