    they are not illegal, but you may have a problem with mots as the the light spread will be different, also some place on the web their are pages of shit about you must have head lamp washers!
    But HID'S are ok when fitted with deflectors ie you cannot see the bulb just a silver dome,

    as for prices on HID the main reasons are the size of the ballasts and some come with built in cancellers to stop error messages on dash, also bulb fitments ie metal base or on some plastic. MOST are made in china some you pay your money and take your chance 2 year warrenty are normally only for ballasts which to be honest the large style type are cheap..
