I agree that they look good, especially on a black car.

What hints or tips about your experience of fitting them do you have to share with other members?

Yea the black on black is real nice. the headlights was really easy to install. stock headlights used H7 bulbs but the Depo Headlights used H4 bulbs so u would have to buy some H4 bulbs.
first off unplug the corner lights and headlights. remove the corner lights first. when u have it off pull out the old socket and use it on the new corner lights. loosen up the 3 screws that holds the headlights and there u go. might have to wiggle the headlights around just a little to remove it. SIMPLE! took me 30-45mins to install.

They look "AWESOME". Turns the bug eyes into a Sports Car.
Wish the set I bought would install on mine. Unfortunately mine is an OEM Xenon set-up and they can not "plug and play" swap out for any aftermarket lights I've seen. I did buy a set exactly the same as yours and I was warned they would not work in my car, but I went ahead and tried anyway. They will not work in a OEM Xenon set-up car. Now they are expensive dust catchers.

Nice to see how they would have looked anyway.
