    pm andy.l if you want to know how to wire them up the proper way. but a hid kit will be a lot easier and cheaper.

    If they were, then there would be loads of posts about it.

    Unless I've missed them, there have been hardly any since the new regs came in.

    No big deal to swap back to halogens for the test though

    You'll pay a fortune for the genuine Xenon headlights though & by the time you've fitted all the other stuff you (technically) need you'll sure have an empty wallet. The Vecs are not too bad as they have projector headlights so as long as they're aligned correctly there's no reason to get stopped or fail MOT for them. Especially if the tester is lenient. My advice would be to get some 35w 4500k or 6000k max. Don't even need to be expensive, then find someone on here that's able to activate the xenon setting on the computer and you'll not even need the cancellors.
