    iv had 3 hid kits now, the 1st i bought was the expensive one, was impressed with it but then sold the car and included it with the sale. then i bought an import subaru wrx and the lights were awful, so ordered a kit from hids-direct, £50 and never had a fault with them, got the same kit now on my bmw and you can see the differance in quality compared to the expensive kit i bought (clips are of a cheaper quality) but other than that for £50 you cant go wrong mate, iv got a 8k kit on mine and very happy with it. just go carefull when installing and they will be fine, had mine in now for 4 months and never gone wrong
    hope this helps

    Let me know how you get on Martyn as I may be tempted to go for it! Are you planning on fitting them yourself?

    Firstly i like to thank everyone for the advice and a special mention to DSK and Joe, the discount worked, saving me £51.00...brilliant! i ordered my kit from HIDS4U on Tuesday and was delivered on Thursday, great service.
    Fitted the kit today, the ballasts are not in the finished position as it was freezing, thats a job for the warmer weather.
    Here a few pics i took, not best quality as only taken on Phone...

    Firstly the kit itself



    Now the ballasts





    And finally a couple of pics on the lights, taken in daylight





    A great quality kit which was real plug n play.... done in under an hour
