Does anyone know how much a pair of nf/nl cornering lights would cost?
Also how hard are they to install? As i am no electrical expert.

Thanks in advance,

Dyl

You could install them urself easily enough i rekon..
They look good on all e series, thats why they are becoming popular as of late.

The fairlanes/ltd's run them off relays n only stay activated for like 3-5sec.. boring!
Most are set up to come on with parkers, as are mine, good idea would be a switch for them if yor worried about being hassled, however i didnt bother as i havnt been asked about them - they arent bright in anyones eyes nor do they grab attention like the ss/xr8 ones do.

So you can hook them up and have them for just the parkers or high beams, both, all? Not worried about being hasseled as you said they arent a pain like the new cars. and they are around $120 for the pair.

thanks for the feedback.

hey dyl, i have them wired up to my headlights so they are on lowbeam/highbeam all the time.

Improve visability 10 fold, (and they look sexy :lol: ) but have not had anyone complain about being blinded.

I've got mine hooked up through the parkers, but they go off when lights are on highbeam. I thought running them through the headlight wire would draw too much current.

Stevo are they much brighter if running them through the headlights?

The $120 is employee price at ford, if you can't get employee price you'll be paying about $160-$170 give or take a few $$$.

Definately a good addition though, they look real good

This wouldn't be a problem if you use a relay.

They can only be as bright as the bulb thats in them, however if you wired them up to the headlights without a relay then they share the current with the headlights and would then be dimmer.
