    You will have to invest in a good aftermaket kit that has H7 or H7R lamps. Difficulty will be where to locate the ballasts if you want to secure the brackets to the shock turrents, but overall, quite easy to fit.

    No...you don't want to mess with 8000K. It is very blue and not bright...besides, you also risk being stopped by the police. Go for a kit that is between 4000K and 6000K in colour temperature .
