    Hmmm, Xenon headlamps are a good price at £299 a pair, just a shame you can only get the control units from Vauxhall which are mega expensive.

    Two points ;-)

    One positive, one negative. First, there are lots of Omegas and Vectras in breakers which have the HID headlights, I'm sure the ballast kit could be adapted easily.

    Negative point. The headlights will not come with the necessary HID bulbs. I spoke to a local supplier about these and they seem to START from about £80 apiece. So weigh in for new bulbs (most breakers cars have smashed headlights) for at least £150. Not so cheap
