    Default Which HID for a Facelift

    Again another HID question, but I cant decide what and where.
    I think I would rather deal with Hids Direct but which kit do I need as I dont really want anything to tricky to fit and also what power and colour is the best to go for, and will the car be ok at MOT time.
    Please help guys as I will be getting this as a Christmas pressie off a family member so it has to be right.
    I almost forgot, would the HID kit work in the Angel Eye Headlamps that are available now for the Facelift as again they might come my way as a Christmas pressie too.

    got them off a guy on DW so cant say where they came from, but very easy to fit. just get the ones you like the look of. and colour is determined by the k so the higher the bluer

    Yeah, standard fitment on OEM xenons is 4300K, which is pretty pants to be honest - 6000K is the one I had, and is much whiter with a hint of blue, and much more pleasing on the eye...

    Sore subject that matey. I lasted a week on that job and while I enjoyed it as the job was very varied it really caught my back and by Friday it was painfull to walk so I had to give it up which really pi$$ed me off. The boss was really understanding and said what could he do to make me stay but there was nothing else going but he will keep my name and I am at the top of the list for anything less physicaly demanding.
    The boss at my old job now knows and has asked me back but I am thinking about it

    Yup, got mine of them a year ago. Cost me 150 squid back then, they're less than half that now...

    On the plus side, I managed to fit them to the fogs in my new car so they still look great...
