Fitted xenons!



  1 of 19 Recaro'd 182 Cups
Thanks to Matt Black for supplying the goods :cool:

After(without sidelight):

Agreed.... looks great, but the numberplate text 'cheapens' the front end- it's HUGE!

Other than that, lovely motor

I heard the washers leak....can be bothered with that.

As for the number plate...i like it :rasp:

You werent at Lymm services around 15:00 on sat by any chance?!! Sure i saw you having a perv at the 197 ;) ;) I'm sure it was your car :)
 
When thry are off how can you tell a xenon from a non xenon ?? I often see folk on say things like 'no xenons' how can you tell ? I've no idea.

It's better with them, but I agree about that front plate.

Can see the bulb in non xenons, just looks like a lense in xenons

You will notice a big difference at night with those.

I miss mine

Mine fitted make a funny pattern on the road at night, its hard to explain but they shine down onto the road and about 6-8ft infront of the car the light makes a /_/--/_/ shape, like a 'W' basically they dont fade out in a smooth line, is this normal or are there any adjustments that can be made?

Xenons are overrated on the Clios. I had a 172 Cup and much prefered them to the Xenon'd 182 that replaced it (cup-packed).They look pretty, but in reality, a set of uprated Halogens H7's in the Cup offer better light output. They can be adjusted iirc by a white allen key type adjuster on each cluster

yeh i noticed that white plastic allen key slot, mite have a play with them at the weekend, but agreed they are not as good in terms of light output as my Lupo GTi ones seem to be.

Not where i go ;)

Plus tbf most MOT monkeys won't notice. Id be more worried about the plate and De-cat :cool:

This is how my xenons look on the road at night, notice the zig zag beam pattern, is that normal or should it shine a smooth faded out beam from left to right? Dosent look as though its shining up either into the road ahead...more like down onto the road....

How affective are the washers? I mean dont the xenin lamps get dirty like any other>? Not very?
 
  1 of 19 Recaro'd 182 Cups
Ahh right, don't know mate, your better off asking someone that has them, although my car never gets dirty to a point where it affects the light output of my headlights so personally don't see the point.

Looks like they deffo need adjusting, they should be lighting the road further than that.

Thats probably why your lupo looks better cos they were already fitted to the car. :)

I'll get a pic like yours tonight and post it up.

That would be great dude, just need some sort of comparison and don't know anybody else with a 182.

Don't think that was me, cos i've been up in bradford this weekend.

I have no idea what the master potter estate looks like hahaha, but i used to work at jcb compact products.
