I dont mind them and a HID conversion would be simple, they are actually ford focus lights, I have used these in many set ups as they come with built in adjusters, fitting them into a escotcheon to suit the XK is a good idea, there are no headlamp alternatives (I did make up a conversion of sorts myself but just kept it for my track car)
Maybe if they done the LEDs as a continuous strip like the new cars may of been better but I understand why they did it they way they have
I had my MOT on Saturday, the lights did need some minor adjustment, but passed with flying colours. XKRacer is correct, the lights are actually Ford Focus, and are much brighter than the originals on dip and main beam.
I am installing HID conversion this weekend, so I hope this will further improve them. I will take some more pics of the LED's at night.
Next project is changing the seat covers, I just received replacement covers, they look great, I just hope they are not to difficult to install.
I put a set of these on my '98 XK-8 before I sold it. I really wasn't happy with them. The LEDs started to act up shortly after I installed them. Did do the HID conversion and it worked fine and there were no isses. The lenses scratched very easily (and buffed out with a lense kit) but I missed the glass so didn't repeat this with the XK-R. Had a Halo light conversion done to it and thought it looked much better.
