The bulb assembly has a double flange soft silicon-rubber seal that must sandwich this hole you drill, so one lip is inside and one outside. It takes a little bit of effort to pull the exterior flange out, but it makes an obvious water-tight seal when you do it correctly. I used a 1 inch spade bit and braced the cap on a piece of wood. Easy to drill; took about 10 seconds.

Ok.. so after more reading.. I when ahead and order Alex F01/f02 and E70 kit.. Hope to get them soon..

-Gassy.. on your#2.. do you find it easier to install the bulb assembly thru the light cover, then install the bulb into the socket. Or install the HID bulb into the socket, then run the bulb assembly thru the cover?.

-Falcon - how was the install on the E70? how was access the H8 bulbs compare to the F01? any tips.

and yes.. Alex was very helpful and very quick to reply emails
