    Trim : GTD

    You'll not have, you will need an HID kit - ballasts - as HID run at a higher voltage than conventional Halogen bulbs that are in your car just now.

    But they are not legal unless you have:

    - Headlight units for HID use
    - Self levelling system (headlights or suspension)
    - Headight washers

    If you get them and are unfortunenate to get a copper who is a stickler for the rules then he will in probability ask you to remove them.

    You can buy the kits from:

    HID Direct

    If it has them - many of the earlier ones do, then you will not have a light level adjustment switch near the headlight on and off button, also you will have headlight washers.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
