As Neal suggested, you'll need to get an aftermarket HID Kit, plenty on Ebay and also in quite a few UK online car/BMW stores, make sure you get something with a warranty though, and preferably one thats had good feedback.

Yes mate...5000K is not a bad rating either and light error cancellation is built into the ballasts. You also get the bulb adapters in the kit so all good to go :thumbsup. If you run into problems installing, we are always here to help :).

Looks like a nice kit :thumbsup. You don't look out for the brightest kit, but more of the colour factor. About 4000K is OEM colour and changes to more blue the higher you go. Don't exceed 6000K otherwise it will be deemed as illegal. Also, the more bluer it is, the less brighter it gets....if that answers your question.
