Got new headlights for the Lude!!!

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...m=250353065865

Bought these bad boys on eBay.

Waiting on the delivery so I can get them installed.

Anybody else with Angel Eyes??

Will I have to remove my bumper to get the old headlights out?

Re: Got new headlights for the Lude!!!

yes you will have to remove your bumper to get to two 10mm bolts holding the headlight in.

Re: Got new headlights for the Lude!!!

well you dont HAVE to remove the bumper, but i suggest it. i didnt take mine off to replace mine. i got lazy. and thanks to that laziness all the flex i had to put on the bumper wrinkled a nickel size patch of the paint just under the corner of the passenger side headlight. but, i love my halo's. so, to each his own...

Re: Got new headlights for the Lude!!!

What were they thinking when they decided to have to bumper to be taken off just to unbolt the damn bumper. Wont take longer than 20min, if you've done it before.
OEM headlights for the win though.

Do you live in the USA or somewhere else where you drive on the right side of the road? If so then don't get these lights you will just blind everyone.

^^^ Lights are you Right Hand Drive cars.

I live in Ireland, driving on the left.


@h22_spin_em: probably end up selling the stock lights on eBay. And if I don't like the halos I'll sell both and get a set of HiDs. I was gonna head for HiDs first but couldn't be assed with the install.

I'll post pics when lights arrive and I get them on the car.

the bumper is a piece of cake to take off, 2 bolts and 2 clips to take the grill off, 5 clips underneath that and one bolt on each side where the fender and bumper meet. pull on it a little and it pops right off. i can have my bumper off in like 5 min. i had alot of practice when we were workin on my retros.

you could prolly sell those headlights faster if you posted them on here first, there is obviously already interest in them.
