It is a booster for the headlights. It is supposed to simulate HID

didn't your lights come with instructions?
basically u take out your old bulbs and put in the catz bulbs. take out the 2 fuses for the headlights, pop them into the white fuse containers. i forget which wire is used look at the pics of the fuse box mook posted. take the cables from the ballasts and plug them into the fuse box. ground the 2 wires, perhaps on the battery itself. oh yeah you cant get the highbeams to work with the lowbeams unless u splice the wires like what coiled did.

is the fuse box for the 5th gen in the engine bay or is it inside the car. Also how does the plug look like for that? is it like the standard h1 plug or is it something else?

im also starting to get interested in this zeta thing. how much do these things usually cost? from risin's explanation, it seems pretty easy to do. has anyone actually done it here with pics?

Well i kinda dont want to say this but oh well. I work and Circuit City and we get a special accomdation price from catz and i can get the lights for myself at about 133 shipped and lights for about 5 a bulb. How well are the catz h1 lights? I might get a few and if anyone wants some let me know or something.

Here are some pics of the zeta....
If you can, save your money for HID.


High beams


Low beams (dirty car)


Ballast installed. The blue on the left is a multi-battery isolator.

Sorry about any typos, I'm drunk off my balls.

That's a nice prelude!

thanks risin. I got them off ebay. The instructions are in Japanese. I am pretty sure how to install them but I wanted to be positve. Why does is have two fuses per module?

BoYgUaN They are supposed to be pretty good. I was told they were especially designed for the zeta system.

coil222, thanks for the pics. is that in your lude by the way?

can someone tell me if these zeta things are good or not? does it actually give u better visibility and not just the brighter look like most cheap aftermarket H1 bulbs.

and why do i hear people say i should save up for HIDs instead? i mean i know HID is the best u can get but is the zeta really not that great? BoYgUaN said around $133 so thats not too expensive if it gives out alot more light... so whats the good and bad stuff about zetas? seems like u guys r saying its not worth it...
