Hello Guys
ea
I just got my Upgraded Jewel Style Headlights for my 99 S70 Today. I bought them on sale for $770 on IPD. I am going to have a mechanic install them for me. How much should I expect to pay to have these installed on my car. Are they easy to install.

^^^ Agreeing with the above. It took me 30 minutes for both sides. Three 10mm bolts on each side. The connectors are all plug and play. Be careful with the plastic tabs on the corner lights - they are fragile.

I would not pay a shop more than 45 minutes to one hour for the installation.

You will definitely enjoy being able to see while driving at night again. The jewels are a pretty dramatic improvement!
