Pros: easy to understand.
"Has all the stuff required to fit a set of lamps or other accessory. However could do with a few more connectors.
Easy to fit, the relay is already connected, easy to follow instructions if needed.
Overall good easy to use product though little pricy for wot it comes with.

Pros: perhaps a good starting point for 'standard' cars
Cons: be prepared to modify
"I was given some driving lights to fit to my Land Rover 90/Defender and needed the wiring to install them. This kit is advertised as a 'fast fit' with everything you need. Most of the kit is pre-wired with connectors and it comes with the necessary relay. To me the 'fast fit' description is a little misleading - the only time saved is really not having to crimp the various connectors/terminals - you may have to do this anyway to either extend cable runs or shorten surplus cable on very small cars (unless you have somewhere suitable to stuff spare wiring).
The contents of this kit will not be sufficient to install driving lights on the front of a Defender (or probably anywhere else). The very short earth wires with tiny 'ring' type terminals are pretty useless (went in the bin). The'ring' type terminal on the fused live feed from the battery is only good for smaller battery bolts (the one on the battery clamp) - useless for the heavy duty battery fitted to a Land Rover 90 (had to fit larger terminals).
The length of wiring supplied is far from generous and certainly not sufficient for any vehicle where the battery is not fitted under the bonnet (as with a Land Rover Defender). I needed to buy at least 3m of additional cable(s) to route the necessary feeds to both the light switch and the relay.
The kit included the connector to tap into the main beam feed - one of those 'press in' jobs - this went in the bin in favour of some 'proper sized' bullet connectors. The illuminated light switch and mounting appeared flimsy and looked rather 'naff' - even on standard vehicles I can't imagine any self respecting 'boy racer' screwing the switch supplied to their dashboard (went in the bin).
On a final note, unless you have eyes like a 'galley rat' be prepared to dig out the magnifying glass to read the instructions.
In summary, this kit is designed for 'smaller' vehicles. Even then be prepared to modify terminals and probably buy a suitable dashboard switch that you can conveniently route the wiring to. If you happen to own a defender (or similar) - just forget it - measure up for required cable and buy the other components as necessary."
