Maybe the pictures aren't revealing enough, but I don't think it looks that nice because of the old style hatch pattern headlight covers/lense. Notice how most modern head lights have moved away from that and use more of a clear lense. Pull the headlights off a new Seville, and then we'll talk!

Well put it like this they look much better than the sealed beam look alikes that come stock. The mechanic at the dealership almost crap there pants looking at mine in amazement, it was group of about 6. Also the 98+ Seville projector lights have horrible visibility also would require some major body work, for what just to look like a Seville. There would be plenty other choices before those for the effort.

do you have any instructions or pictures on how you cut down your corner lense and how you got the bracket to fit correctly when you installed that in the eldorado? thanksssss

The bracket is fitted basically by placing then cutting/shaving over and over til it sits properly. And I just mark the lense with a marker where I think it need to be cut by just looking at the fitment and then go to work on it with some sort of saw.

I was wondering if it's all about the clear lens then why not getting the '02 eldo one.. But the only problem with it is that the brackets are little different and you need to adjust or cut... but don't you think it's better than cutting of the corner lamps?.. :)

Damnit this is where everyone ran to!? I didn't know this forum was getting this kind of traffic. Anyways I did it to my Eldorado right after Mike Keo (<--- the very first guy) did it to his. I think I'm going to go to the European ellipsoid BMW lights within the net few months. Right now I have 9006 Xenon lights (the real deal) in there. It's pretty nice, but the pattern would be much better with the European model (has projectors). Also the cover is actually glass instead of plastic too. I might try the angel eyes also... Next week my Sylvania X1010 Xenon auxillary lights come in. Four Xenon low beam lights gonna be nice and bright :).

Could you measure the lights..... I want to see if they may fit the Q, that would make the car look MUCH more expensive........
