    Had a look today and my light are totally different to yours, compared them to another lads car at work he has got a 52plate,
    so didnt need them extra bulb holders, because mine is the face lift! so will send them back and will get a refund on them!
    On my lights all the bulb and looms are all inside the light, and has like a cover on the back which faces up!
    so will just need to drill the covers to allow for the looms to go to the ballas packs!

    i think im going to mount the ballas packs on the top shocker mounts!

    As Plod myself for the past 9 years (should i even admit that!!! oh well, )its definately NOT something that we would look for....(unless your a traffic officer and know minor details like that!!)

    Looks awesome and I will be looking at doing mine too, so we can both be tarred with the same brush!

    Nice thread, as I put some in my e36 328i at the weekend, which went easy as the HID bulbs just use the wire clips that held inthe old bulbs. Will be doing my brothers e39 next week now he has the adaptor rings, as the e39 (528) has the right angle connectors so the bulbs provided wont fit.

    I had the same problem with bright blue low beams (6K ones) but yellow parking & full beam lights. I have ordered a set of 'blue' parking bulbs, which is worth a punt for £4 delivered; from the ebay link provided.

    That will leave the full beams to sort out (I realise you should not HID those as well) so am after a solution for these. Do I just get a set of Xenon white bulbs for these or is there another way of doing it? I saw some bulbs in a mag that had an 'angel eye' ring round them which looked cool; can you get high beam bulbs with these on? Thanks

    you can get hold of high and low beam hid kits but are more expensive!
    im thinking of ideas for main beam, it just doesnt look right does it.

    Hi mate, the side light bulbs you ordered don't work.. Me and craig tried two different sets claiming to give off a bright White light but they were absolutely no different... The only way to convert the side lights is to use led bulbs with resistors to prevent the dash throwing up a fault

    I ordered a set of 'ULTRA ICE WHITE SIDE LIGHT BULBS 1 PAIR 501 STYLE ' style bulbs off eBay, as per an earlier link & will put one in when I get it to see if there is any difference. I can always use them as spares, I suppose. Thanks for your help here.

    Talking of resistors, do you know what size resistors work to fool the Computer when used with an LED bulb? Would they go on the + or 1 wire?

    Also, does anyone know about the 'resistor packs' for the HLDs that I have heard people talk about, which fix the 'Low Beam Failure' message I get every once in a while, after fiitting the HIDs? Ta
