    HID kit mate nothing but the best although you will need shrouds too. I would get a 6000k or 8000k HID kit and a set of shrouds. You will not spend any more than £100

    Hi. I use Halfords Super Brilliance Headlight bulbs on a BOGOF offer and got extra bright 501's from Ebay. So far so good. Jim
    The older I get the wrong bit gets stiff !!

    Thing is with them halfords lights there 100W each. HID's only use 55W total. So its less strain to run etc last longer and look 10x better
