    Yeah you have to cut away a little of the wing, nothing too taxing though...

    As you look at the wing with the current lights installed; there's a 'crease' where it folds in behind the indicator portion; which comes to a small piece of wing that sits behind your indicator, that's the bit that needs to be trimmed. It's not difficult or particularly risky so long as you take your time and work to the rule "you can take it off but you can't put it back on" - once cut you'll just need to seal the bare metal on the cut edge to prevent rust; but you can use whatever you like to do that as the edge will be hidden.

    You'll also need to make an adapter for the wiring, there are a couple of ways this can be done but again, nothing too tricky.

    I'll try to find some pics/links...

    Regards,

    Rob.

    There were some pictures to go with this but they're no longer in his webspace; I'll try to find some more. This is probably the best way to do the wiring too as you don't end up modding anything on the car's wiring...

    Regards,

    Rob.

    what did you guys do regarding the change position of the lower screw on the headlight? did you make a bracket?

    I found that because of the way i trimmed the wing, the headlight sits in very tight anyway, so it only needs the 2 screws at the top to hold it firm.
