You need the wiring and self leveling kit to do it properly.  Look at Kufatec for kits.

im doin this at the moment and it is proving very problematic. I think it is down to a dodgy loom from kufatec. And by the looks of things, thats not a first!

JPC can you do a detailed write up about this Mod, it is very interesting and i am sure it will be popular once people see how you do it.
It might even get you some install work.  :happy2:

it does depend on the car and if you want levelers etc.

I for one am not concerned too much about fitted these without levellers etc. i had my anni with projector lenses fly thru 2 MOTs and not fail.

its pretty straight forward with the right adaptors! ;)
