I've spent ages agonising over how to update my front lighting. I looked at loads of different headlight replacements but none were quite what I wanted. I ruled out OEM xenons on grounds of cost (sorry Nigel!), so in the end decided I was going to leave the OEM halogens in place.
I've ordered a set of Dectane Modulite DRLs (real DRLs, that is, that come on with the ignition and dim when the headlights come on). They take the form of a grill fitting that sits behind the gap in the bumper, and wires straight into the existing looms. Here are some pics to give an idea of the effect.
Obviously the bumper will need to come off to install them, so while it's off, I'll take the opportunity to change all the bulbs in the headlights and foglights. Osram Nightbreaker Plus white xenon-look for the dip, main and fogs, plus LEDs with error cancellers for the sidelights and indicator.
I should have everything here to do the install in about ten days, and Amason007 has kindly agreed to help me (I've never attempted to remove the bumper before). Real pics will follow in due course.
