will throw up a photographic tutorial.

had a look at where the bolts are etc last night and at this stage i would rate it as about a 3.5 difficulty on a rating of ten....where rating 1 is starting the car up and rating 10 is....well.....something really bloody hard!

Baz are yours in Aust yet or just on the way?

They look far better in the flesh than in pictures. Nobody would know they weren't genuine benz lights.

To make it perfect every LED had better work or I will flip out!

very interesting to see how good they look on your cars. So far, I love the Depos ... what a difference in giving the car an facelift. Pitty the light coming out of them is completely useless in dark streets. :(

Assume you mean the headlights and not the tail lights?

If so post a new thread and we will post how to fix what youve got.

I installed them and wouldnt you know it - i left my digital camera at home! Will update with pics tonight! Sorry!

And above - must be talking about headlights - because the new LED taillights are without exaggeration 2-3 times brighter than the standard ones.

They are awesome......i have to say i am very impressed with them in terms of their looks when they are off, on and their performance.

Install took about 5 minutes per side - the longest thing was just working out where to stick the transformer inside of the quarter panel! Easy!

If you havent already.....ORDER THEM!
