    All are plug and play but you need to make a large hole in the back of the headlight cover for the wires to run through.

    Very easy indeed, total time including removal and replacement of front bumper is 20 mins to half hour.

    Once you take the bumper off ther will be a nice cosy place under the headlight to fit your ballast mate so easy to do

    Thanks for replies people, so just a cheap HIDs then? I wondered about the differences of 35w and 55w and dont fancy melting the plastic face of the headlights.

    I totally agree headlights on vec c is.crap!!! I can barely see at night!!! Will HIDs still show lines as it does with standards??
