    Drop the bumper,takes all of 5mns,and shove the ballast under the headlight,might have to cut 2" of the foam to fit it in,all in youre looking at maybe 10mns tops!!!

    If you take the bumper off there is loads of space accessible under the headlight in the wing.

    strapped it to the inlet pipe in the end!

    they look awesome. Still annoying how the drivers side points at the floor though...!? I know it should be high so you don't dazzle on coming traffic, but it is far too low
