    Default Facelift - Which HID kit?

    After driving the car in the dark for the first time since I bought it last night, I need to sort out the lights and rather than spending a fortune on bulbs etc and after reading posts on here I think the HID conversion kit looks to be the way forward.

    It was scary to say the least!

    Can anyone recommend a kit, I know a lot of you go to HIDs direct but there are quite a few options.

    I know I'd like the 50w 5000k version but just want to make sure with you guys what kit it is I need, is it H7 or something else

    Plus what about sidelights as mine are currently very dull and probably more yellow than white

    Cheers

    so can i! with the mtecs, they are a winning combination in my opinion. if you don't want quite a blue effect then perhaps go for the 5000ks.... 6000ks work well for me though

    just ordered, won't arrive till Monday though, gutted! But, on the bright side I'll be able to see where I'm driving after Monday.

    Quoted the forum too and got 10% off so really happy with that. Ordered the 50w 6000k kit with mtec 501 sides and a pair of new H1's

    Cheers for the advice guys, said I may require tech2 but very unlucky if I do!
