    I was thinking of doing what you're thinking hippo, but the costs were like 5x the cost of fitting an aftermarket kit.
    I ended up buying a 35/6000 kit from HID-Direct on ebay for £39.99. The guy emailed me and said if I waited 7 days or so he'll send me the new range of kits he's got coming in. Better, slimmer ballasts or something (I'm no expert on them). That was about 5 days ago.
    Might worth you considering that approach.

    I am just about to do through this mod myself. I have purchased some vxr xenon headlights with the ballasts. Just need to get the loom and level sensors then I will fit them. I already have the vxr front bumper fitted with fully functioning factory headlight washers so may as well finish off the front end.

    Not the cheapest way but my preferred method. I prefer factory fit even if its a retrofit.

    I have 8k xenon for hide direct. If you want OEM look just get the head light washers and aftermarket hids it would be less hasle and be cheaper.
