I have HID lows but am trying to get LED for brights. Having trouble with getting them bulbs installed. The clip is crazy and the aftermarket one no one knows how to install so I am still trying to upgrade that
I will stick them in on Saturday. My understanding is these go right in....stay tuned.

I think the lows are easy to do. The highs have a goofy clip to hold the bulb thats becoming a problem trying to upgrade
They went in ok...tight fit against the housing but once they were seated (twisted in place), no problem. The rubber caps are not completely sealed (95% seated), as the fan housing sticks up a bit; might get the raised covers. Will try them out tonight. BTW, no way you could do low beams in place; you have to pull each headlamp assembly out.

I used the raised covers, but the driver's side kept popping off. I was able to put the stock cover back on and it fits OK. The pass side is the side that needs the other cover, and it doesn't come off because the radiator reservoir keeps it from coming off.

The new low beams are WAY brighter. I need to aim the right one a bit. But, very pleased so far. I went to Folsom Cars and Coffee this morning and there were probably 300 cars there; amazing stuff....like this beauty...

How did you get the highs to stay in?

Haven't bought the high beams, yet. Wanted to be sure I liked the low beams before I bought more. But when I do, I will post something.

Any pics? I put these in the ZX2 last month but would like to see the light output on the Fiesta.

Adjusted the rotation on the low-beam LEDs. It turns out there is only one way to get these to align in the socket in a vertical orientation (out of 3 total rotation possibilities). Any other of the 2 rotations suck. They are bright!
