    Factory fit would be expensive.

    An aftermarket kit from www.hids4us.com or HIDs Direct is what you want - BUT make sure it's canbus compatable for the bulb warnings, etc. 35w 6000k is pretty much the norm. 4000 or 5000k bulbs for a more OEM look. Any more than 6000k and you'll get a blue coloured light and lose some of the light output too.

    I'm pretty sure there is some fitting info in the how2 section.

    Easier with the bumper off and headlights out. Although some will tell you to remove the airbox.

    Under the headlights is a dedicated recess where the factory fit ballasts normally go. Makes for a much tidier job IMHO.

    Kits do not have to be Canbus friendly if you know someone with Op-com ot Tech 2, they can switch the Xenon option on and it will stop the bulb warning.

    My facelift just worked straight out of the box and they were just a cheap set from Fleebay, not marked as Canbus or have cancellors on them.
