Depo (what he's used) are aftermarket headlights. Valeo are the OE examples.

if they dont, the amount of light that is given off on the road will be pathetic.

Nice guide mate,

Another tip would be to put the lights in front of a fan heater and go watch telly for a bit, worked a treat with mine on the golf, No worries about burning the house down and no waiting for the water to dry out,

Smoked standard lights are the way forward,
