    New headlight question

    Hi

    I want to change the headlights, looks like the previous owner has had some eyebrows on at some point and there is loads of crap left on them. They are also preety scratched and chipped so would just like some info on lights that fit.

    Would I be able to chage light for light if I were to buy some gsi headlights like these off ebay? I dont want to have to chop and change the loom so am after some which my current loom plug straight into.

    thanks in advance.

    Just done mine, best just to take the bumper off mate, 3 screws in each arch then 3 clips took 10 mins! Makes it alot easier. Just a word of warning tho when getting the clips off underneath u need to pull the pins out to remove them, and they are bloody hard, it's easy to destroy them so try n be gentle lol. There is a how to on removing front bumper, take a look at that.
