I have been asked how I got those magnificent :) LED headlights and angel eyes. Here’s how and how you can also get a pair yourself! They look great and update the car’s look like those MK2s.
A simple Google search will allow you to figure out how to DIY. I considered trying myself but after a few days of reading on the subject, I got discouraged. Yes the parts are easy to find, such as clear corners, LED strips (white and orange), angeleyes, etc. But the assembly is not that easy! First, you need to take your headlights away from your car and disassemble them completely. Then, you need to take out the old blinkers and configure the LEDs to switch to amber when the blinkers are turned on, back to white after, etc. That’s done with extra material you can’t find on the web. You need to go to a local shop and find the electronics you need. You also need to add the angel eyes and wire them properly. Not for me, I decided…
Instead, I found it easier to buy a complete kit that I only have to install myself. Not the internals, the complete LED DRLs! I found a supplier in UK and we both agreed that I would order a pair and also become his reseller in North America.
So, if you are looking for a pair of LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL), with or without angel eyes, go to this page.
Below are pictures of my headlights being modified. The mods are: Paint from silver to black, smoke corners, LED blinkers, European style headlights without the orange patch on the side, angel eyes (light strip around the high beams) and finally, yellow high beams. Talk about being different! Whenever I drive on highways, left lane, coming rapidly onto cars, my headlights make the difference: people see me coming from far away, just wondering what kind of car is behind them. So they dive into the middle lane, without even me having to do anything! Incredible how headlights change the way other drivers behave. What I love most, is when I need to “flash” them, using my yellow high beams. I get an instant “Oh my god, let’s change lanes” reaction. Since yellow high beams are rare in North America, this is a sure way to get the attention of upcoming traffic. Anyhow, as you can see, I love my headlights and I enjoy them every day. :)
Now, the pics, from assembly to final look, on the race track.
