'08 Front headlamps - connector question?

Hey guys, just a quick question...

I'm currently away with work at the moment and I don't have my car with me, I'm in a company car.

I am planning on buying some angel eye headlights for my '08 plate GP Multijet while I am up here on business. Because I don't have my car with me I can not check this for myself at this current time. What I am wanting to know is, how many pins / holes does the headlight connector have on an '08 plate GP as I have been told to check befor I buy because they apparently changed in 2008...?

If anyone could let me know asap please I would really appreciate it... as I would like to buy the new headlights before I come home to save postage and packaging. Cheers!

Sean

Do you have silver or dark grey headlights as standard?

According to this https://www.fiatforum.com/grande-pun...fit-s1-gp.html the series one silver headlamps use a 14 pin connector with 7 wires in it. the series two grey headlamps have an 8 pin connector. Although the link I have provided shows how they can be modified to fit.

Re: '08 Front headlamps - connector question?

I have these with the single projector with HID's as my low beam they are the s1 version so I had to fit my standard plug off my standard lights. They are abit of a pain to get the beam pattern set up but with the HID's they are alot better than standard and look good on my White gp
Thanks BUG-Z thanked for this post
