INFORMATION ABOUT CUSTOM HEADLIGHTS


WHAT ARE CUSTOM HEADLIGHTS?

Custom headlights are your factory headlights that have either undergone cosmetic/aesthetic changes, or lighting upgrades.

We can customise your lights as much or as little as you want - from either blacking out the chrome within the headlight and leaving everything else as it is, to retrofitting specialist bi-xenon projectors with tuned projector lenses, upgrading the angel eyes to different shapes & colours, and complementing it all with body coloured shrouds.

ARE THEY LEGAL?

Yes! All of the following items we supply/fit is completely road legal/MOT passable;

  • Internal painting (any internal reflectors will be retained)
  • Bi-LED projectors (will be tuned and have a legal beam pattern, and low/high beam will functionally act like OEM)
  • LED headlight bulbs (are within MOT pass brightness thresholds)
  • LED bulbs (meet & surpass minimum brightness thresholds)
  • Bi-Xenon/xenon builds (as long as your car has all the requirements functional - auto levelling & headlight washer jets)
  • LED high beams (meet legal beam pattern criteria)
  • Angel eyes (acting as either side lights or DRL replacements on white colour)

 

The following is NOT road legal and for show use only;

  • Demon eyes (apart from white)
  • Angel eyes (set to any colour apart from white)

 

Headlights with projector retrofits will levelled on our test bench at a maximum beam angle of -0.5°. If the headlights have been manually levelled from within the car, or externally from the brackets via the split plastic mounting rivets then you will need to get the headlights correctly levelled from a MOT station or garage with the correct equipment.

WHAT'S THE PROCESS OF IT ALL?

  1. Choose your custom headlight specification
  2. Ensure that you've chosen the correct build process for you (either core exchange program, leaving the vehicle/headlights with us etc...)
  3. Book your appointment via the website and select your preferred date
  4. Check out through our secure payment gateway to secure your slot
  5. Arrive on the appointment date and get your new shiny custom headlights
  6. Enjoy your new purchase and be safe in the fact you have our 2 year warranty on our workmanship, and 1 year warranty on products

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

The end price of our custom headlights depend entirely on what specification you want.

Because we've now redesigned the purchase process to be entirely modular, you can tweak your specification as much as you like without having to redo anything!

There's some information that you'll need to know in order to make an informed decision when purchasing your custom lights. This won't take long to go through - promise!

YOUR VEHICLE CHASSIS

You'll need to know your chassis type or code in order to proceed with your custom headlights. This is to ensure that we know what headlights you currently have in your car, and to cross check against our inventory (for the core exchange program).

If you don't know what chassis code your vehicle is, you can use the last 7 digits of your VIN number (found on your V5 or the vehicle), and putting it into a site like www.realoem.com under "Serial". This will give you a code that will start with either 'E, F, G, I, or R' followed by 2 digits. For example 'E36, E92, or F32' etc.

If you can't find your chassis code on our website, then please don't hesitate to get in touch - we've merged some chassis' together for ease of use, and will be happy to assist!

THE BUILD PROCESS

If we don't have your headlights in stock - there's a couple of options from here:

  • Leaving either your car or headlights with us while we carry out the conversion for 7 days (Friday evening drop off, Saturday morning collection)
  • Leaving a second set of headlights with us - you'll be able to collect your headlights on your appointment date providing we have your headlights 7 days prior to the appointment date
