wehhooooOO MTec's Installed
After hearing all the good things about MTECH and the frightening things (finger prints and accidental droppage causing premature burnout), I decided to nut it up and get them cause I am tired of my fogs outshining my headlamps. I took pics but since Houston has been pissed on for several days and the lights in my garage are pretty bright you can't really see how much better they are than the stock sylvania lamps...and I was too lazy to take pics when it went dark out cause its humid as hell and wet everywhere, the mosquitos would probably give me some kinda of encephylitis or west nile spineyes but rest assure I am totally satisfied with them and the awesome light output. Should have done this sooner grin my thanks to the EverythingCelica store!
My only advice to those wishing to install these in the future is go buy the game "Operation" and latex gloves; then practice practice practice laughsilly ...it takes great paitience to get them in without bumping them against the housing. I was lucky and had one slight bump when a neighbors dog ran into my garage rofl bulb was fine though. I CAN SEEE great mod thumbsup

yeah the come prefab with the connectors standarrd for the bulb type, unless you are talking about the socket that the low beams plug into just carefully remove the rubber boot...unclip the metal brace then wiggle the old bulb out of the black socket, replace with new bulb then reverse the disassembly... ecelica has detailed info..

for the price $71 shipped and the fact I got Highs, Lows, and Fogs for a bit more than I paid for two Piaa H3 Amber Ions bulbs ($42) I couldnt justify the cost of piaa all the way around grin I have the Piaas still installed and will used my MTECH fogs for reserve when the Piaas burn out...been almost a year for the Piaa's.

nothing that involved just unplug then genlty replace the old bulbs and boom you're done...took me 30 minutes...good manual dexterity and small hands would help thumbsup

My one foglight bulb had premature burnout, but I think it had more to do with me accidently stepping on the bulb & popping it. cry
