    eBay. get any cheap ones from China. they all come from there anyway. buy the cancellors and or get "xenon feature" activated on your car through tech2. this will stop any dash board errors coming up. you can go for 35w hids which are fairly cheap, around the £20 mark or pay a bit extra and get 55w hids which are around £43. i can highly recommend these which i have on my car, you wont be disappointed.

    The blurb in the link says "3 times brighter than a standard halogen bulb but with 40% less power consumption"

    A 35w HID bulb is approx 3 times brighter than a standard halogen; a 55w HID bulb will be more than that.

    Also, how can a 55w HID bulb have 40% less power consumption than a 55w halogen bulb? They're both rated at 55w so will consume the same amount of power. I guess he's probably referring to a 35w kit when talking about 40% less power consumption.

    4300k Metal-based bulbs too. I split the existing bulb holder to the metal part and the plastic electrical connection part and used to metal part to fix the bulbs in place so didnt need seperate bulb holders.

    Your profile indicates you've got a facelift. Facelifts don't need the separate bulb holders. The HID bulbs just clip into the same fixings as the stanard halogen bulbs.

    The metal based bulbs will clip in better then the plastic ones. I have the plastic ones, they are in nice and tight, but personally would have preferred the metal bases.
