      I've been thinking about possibly buying some halo headlights for my Corrado. Are halo headlights basically a plug-n-play replacement for a Corrado, or is there any additional electronic/wiring work needed, and do you need to any computer mods to change the light behavior at all?

      From recollection they use euro plus, 4x4 style so you would need to convert them from the US 9000 series plug to the euro plug. Hope they come with it cause last I heard those plugs are NLA

      I'm sure a quick search would easily provide you with your answers...

      The lights Never come with the plugs. And there are no computer mods that can be done to affect the lights behavior.

      I went from my U.S. spec headlights on my G60 to E-code (they may all be I don't know) and snipped off the plug and wired em in with female blade connectors and have no issues. I get the source for power for the halos from my side marker lights. I ordered the Euro 4X4 plug and it took quite a while to come in (like 2 months). I have yet to install it. I think I will save it to use on my e-codes I got for my VR I just bought.
