DIY: fitting OEM Xenon headlights on a pre Xenon car

I keep seeing threads and finally got around to uploading pics from when I swapped to Xenon headlights from my non Xenon's.

I'm not going into detail about removing headlights as this has been covered before - instead here is the difference in what the headlight plug's need to look like to fit - and I've shown the difference in socket for guidance.

Easy enough and take barely a minute to sort:

xenon headlight fitting:


non xenon plug trimmed to fit:



original non xenon headlight to highlight difference:


original plug shown before being trimmed:


Hope that helps someone else

Thank you! I was a little concerned about doing this, as I'd be the guy with the "oddball sub-harness" or something to that effect.

No worries. I've sent details to a few people and replied to posts. Pictures always help though
