    I have just bought a pair of Xexon S3 lights off of e-bay to replace my very badly pitted A3 halogen lights. Just occured to me, do the pre-facelift lights also have automatic levelers? If they do, will I still be able to adjust them myself? /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    khufu, all Xenons have auto-levelling I think, it's a legal requirement.

    The auto-levelling stuff is at the back, shouldn't be that hard to er, make it fit if needed. As your not that far from me, if you want a look at mine, give me a shout.

    Just remember and get yourself some protectors, well worth it after the sandstorm run I'm sure you'll agree. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif

    Cheers, I have had a quick look at the ETKA6 and it shows a sensor at the front and one at the rear. I'll see what comes and take it from there. As you say, those protectors were a godsend that day.

    Oooh, one at the front also, I didn't realise that. Mine's going in on Tuesday to get the levelling looked at, it's still playing up sometimes.

    Do you have version 6 of ETKA? It covers the facelift model up to 2003. PM me if you want it.

    Ok, I went for the second option and wired the xenon lights to the battery via a relay controlled by the side light power. Everythink is working fine, although I'm sure they will need to be adjusted. So part one is completed, now for part two and to get the self leveling installed /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif. What a difference even in the workshop - I'm now waiting for darkness to fall.

    They do make a difference don't they! It's only when you drive another car without them (I do) you realise how good they are.

    Keep us posted /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif
