    All you need is a set like this

    1 series xenon upgrade


    or this one

    The 123d is the new two door. This model has projector lights for both low and highs, so will be very suitable for HID kits. Find out what bulbs you have and you should be able to pick up kits for around 50 to 75 quid. The 55 watt kits are now widely available. 6000K colour temp best, but can also go to 8000K colour.

    I have just done my e36 with 3000K fogs, 8000K lows and 6000K (55w) highs. Took me an hour yesterday to do the highs - main probs are finding a suitable spot for the ballasts and creating a hole in the dust covers to take the new bulb and rubber grommet.

    I will post pics of mod and advice in next day or so. Lit up Mars last night!!
