    Default hid conversion on 56' facelift model

    hi guys

    was looking for some advice on getting a hid conversion on my facelift vec-c

    which kit to get?
    is it difficult to fit?
    do i need resistors and possibly capaciters as mentioned in a how 2 on a pre facelift?
    does it need to be a canbus kit?
    would i need to fit a projection kit?

    and just any general info on the subject that may help me, i live in a rural area and do a lot of country lane and unlit road driving and im finding the standard lights very poor, is this the case on all non hid models?

    thanks

    Shouldn't need them for a facelift model, as they already have the xenon function activated from factory.
