    hi there depends on what CCFL or angel eyes you have bought?

    Check my 'How To' thread on installing them if they are similar to the ones i had you can fit them on the outside of the lens, which i agree looks better!

    Personally I removed the lens completely, the rings sat just in the recess and siliconed on from behind. Looks much better IMO.

    Also I left the sidelights (but replaced with leds) as I've wired mine as DRLs (with a switch so I can turn em off if I want)

    I'd also say wire them up to come on with interior lights as well, if you have remote locking then unlocking and the rings coming on is well cool and very handy.

    I had mine with the central locking looks wicked at night. I still have the wiring diagram if you want it. All u need is some crimps, cable and a diode

    Yes it does look very cool
    Mine are actually LED which came with a relay harness and 2 different wires for activating them. I threaded both through the bulkhead behind the glove box, one connects to the footwell lights, the other to switched live behind the stereo via a switch hidden in the sunglasses cubby hole. The principles the same though.

    The ones I've got would only clip in where the lense goes originally, wouldn't fit behind the lense as they were too big. I agree with Jimbob, de-lensed looks better in my eyes.

    They look great, turned out well, so i guess you jus stuck them to them outside of the lens like mine?
