    Think it will fail the mot if you put them in the mains, you loose the flash function as they don't warm up quick enough.

    pre face lift is h7's on dipped and high beam - but as said above - they take a second or two to reach maximum potential - and dont like being turned on/off so you could damage them - i've only got them on dip beam and thats plenty enough

    I think the main beam bulbs on a facelift are H1's.I've just put some HID's in this week, only done the dip beams but as deztroyer sez thats all you need, they are deffo bright enough.

    Correct.

    As said, HID's for dipped beam use is more than sufficient.
