    What he said.
    6k are a common choice, they are white with a hint of the blue. Mine went through MOT but with the new Euro MOT standards "potentially" coming into play HID's were on the list to be looked at.
    They have said it would be looking at aftermarket HID's with no headlight washers and headlight levelling. This isn't in play yet and I dont think it's 100% confirmed that this will be the case if the new MOT does come in, I just know they were looking at it and HID's were on the list.
    Have a look in search and type in HID and you will find everything you need to know.

    HID bulbs fitted to main/high beam aren' recommended.

    1. HIDs don't like to be continually switched on and off as it can shorten their life.
    2. The delayed full illumination time is a safety issue.

    The rest of your questions are as others have already said.
