Sorry for asking what might be a silly question to some but whats the difference between these and normal OEM lights?

Cheers

I'd be interested to know if they're better than the standard lights when it's dark, sure they look good, hopefully they're not as woefully inadequate as the standard lights.

just to update I managed to get around fitting the lights,
could not believe how easy it was to change the lights over, just a
matter of removing some bolts and screws which are all explained in a neat
little manual inside the box. I first hooked them up to make sure they worked
and fitted in correctly then I needed to adjust the beam?s which was a pain to
manually do so I took out the old motors and installed them into the celis`s
put the parts back together. I also got some headlamp protectors to keep the
lights in mint condition. The lights give off a cool blue glow and a
bright white beam once turned on, personally I would say these lights are alot
superior compared to the Fk angels, I showed the lights to mate of mine who had
the fk`s on his mk4 and after seeing mine the Fk`s are currently on ebay ready
for the celis lights to be installed on the weekend!

here are some pics, although they don?t really do these headlamps justice, as
you need to seem them in the flesh, will get around taking some proper pictures
in the dark to compare.

Would there be further discount if there is a group buy?

I'm currently considering FK's but only cos they look good for the price. (Around ?130 on the bay) But I'd defo go for the hellas if they are cheaper with the group buy! [:D]

there may be a possiblity of a discounted price if I were to run a GB on these lights,but I am waiting to gather more interest as I said I need at least 5 or more members interested for the GB to run and confirm price`s etc... If anyone else is interested in a set let me know quick.

I am confident that you have no chance of getting these lamps for around the ?130 price mark mate, the FK lamps are just not built with the same components and are not the same spec.

Sorry, I wasn't expecting to get the Hellas for ?130! I realise
there is a significant quality difference. Just wondered if the
group buy would reduce them from the ?270 mark [:)]

more info on prices etc.. these are genuine Hella`s so they wont be as
cheap as chips[;)] , as I am sure you are very well aware of baker21[:)]

Guys, I dont think I will be able to them for 200 anytime soon, as
these retail for at least ?300 from most outlets`s and I checked euro
car parts who sell them for ?303.45 ! and that`s without delivery or
vat. I dont think I need to express how good quality these headlamps
are and they really do need to be seen in the flesh to be fully
apprectiated.

Pricing wise I have tried very hard to get them at the discounted rate
that I have, and can only go back to my contact once I have more
interest to make it worth the while.

I`m only selling these as they seemed like a great offer and wanted to share with members.

PM me if anyone needs more info.
