Would someone mind explaining to me the different options open to upgrading the lights on a 996 to Xenons or similar. I have been quoted almost £2k by a main dealer with them telling me I need to change the whole unit. On the other hand I have been told by an independent that £500 will be enough to upgrade.

As always any advice much appreciated.

dealer is fitting complete new light units, where as indy is adding the xenon unit to your existing lights...

Would there be much noticable difference between the two?


Thanks

the complete units have automatic levelling and would also be warranty covered..

but do you have manual headlmap levelling on your existing set up ?

in terms of road performance, it is unlikely that will be a any noticable difference but only an aftermarket verses offical xenon comparison would show.. but the units and bulbs are of identical operating spec....

although you probably want to check with what exactly the indy is going to offer ? add on unit or complete change... as if you can get a complete change for £1500 and then trade you old lights in for up to £500 then it may be worth while going for the complete swap !

Like - a guy goes to the doctor because he was accused of being obsessed with sex, the doctor says tell me what you think of when I show you these pictures -

Shows him a square, the guys says 'a naked woman sitting'

Shows him a circle, the guy says 'a naked woman standing'

Shows him a triangle, the guy says ' a naked woman walking'

Doctor says 'well you certainly are sex-obsessed'

The guy says 'what do you mean, you are the one with the big collection of dirty pictures'
