    Depends on the type of sharkeyes. If they are OE fitment, or aftermarket H7/H7 fitment?

    You'd best have a search for what else is needed mate because with those ones you'll need a D2S HID kit, bulb retaining clips, indicator bulbs and finally you'll need to convert your wiring yourself to allow them to plug in

    They are the OE fitment ones then. All the wiring needs altering on them as they just have a single plug. Rather than an individual plug for each bulb like non-sharkeye headlights.

    It depends on how good you are with electrics

    As I said before have a search on here as how to's have been done before, questions have been asked and part numbers have been posted for the bits I mentioned above that you need to get from vauxhall

    Hi Craig

    I've just installed the DEPO Sharkeyes on my Coupe.

    These lights have already been wired up inside the lamp housing for the light bulb and they have one single 10 pin connector on the rear of each lamp housing. You can buy an adapter cable off ebay germany for approx. €50.

    If you get the adapter cable, you will also need the 900x-series connectors - these are the female plugs which you connect the car's male wiring into.

    (2x) 9005 plug - side lights / parking lights (link)
    (4x) 9006 plug - low and main beam (link)
    Can't remember what plug is used for the indicators at the moment.

    *EDIT* Noticed the link i gave you there are the male connectors, not the female ones you need*

    If you're going for the D2S kit, you will need the D2S bulb holder from Vauxhall and you will also need the indicator bulb from Vauxhall.

    You will find the part number's on here somewhere, can't seem to find them right now

    Hope this helps!

    I've got the same Depo's with 10 pin connectors and I've got the D2S retainers + indicator bulbs. Can I just ask what the parts above you have listed are for? As I thought they were standard fit side lights + main beam? Also I thought you could only use the Vauxhall indicator bulb?
