QLD, Australia

long story short. hit a kangaroo the other night that was peacefully "sleeping" in the middle of the road, and thought to myself
"i may be getting that gt kit painted alot soon than i thought".
however the damage to the car was very minor, the front bumper popped straght back out and is only a little shakey and other than some blood on my nice white car all was fine.
or so i thought

my right hand in headlight doesnt work properly any more

can anyone tell me if... (sorry about the technical terms) the big bulb in the big light has 2 stages, because it lights up with the high beams but not with the lows (make sense?)

i have xr headlights to replace the standard ones when i put the gt kit on so it dosent really bother me if there f**k, was just hopeing to flog them of on e-bay when i did

Have you ever thought about playing some carmageddon to relieve some of that tension? lol :lol:

Double check your wiring, and swap the globe from your xr headlights over (if you got a bulb with them) just to see if its the bulb that has blown which it sounds like it has. Does your park lights work? for all I know they run off the same circuit.
