I've got a 2006 Alfa 159, want to install angel eyes on it and wondering if anyone has done it and where they bought it. Did they fit it themselves?
Also can I have it so the indicator bulb runs a halo daylight/headlight but turns off when it's needed as an indicator?
Let me know any advice or recommendations. Would appreciate it. I live in London if that helps recommend!
The kit Samir makes is a DIY kit but he may offer a converted set on exchange (or a refundable deposit once you return usable lights to him.)
Build up is straightforward depending on the age of your lights. New ones can be dismantled using gentle heat as the glue hasn't cured yet. Old ones are impossible and require the destruction of one set to get the lenses and another for the backs.
If you've got the Halogen lamps then I'd recommend buying a set of new lamps to dismantle and keeping your originals for spares. If you've got factory BiXenons then buying a set of used Halogens is the way to go. Cutting away the body to leave the lense intact and cutting the lense of the original BiXenons. All parts are common to both types of lamp unit with the exception of the internal chrome lamp assembly.
Wiring looks simple enough, reassembly with a bit of Sikaflex/Tiger Seal is simple too.
The electronic control box lives in the cabin with cables routed around the engine bay/scuttle. The current one has a start up sequence activated by the remote door opening key fob and yes, use of the indicator will turn off the relevant halo ring.
