    you can either fit xenons (HIDs) to your current standard lights or if u wanna go for the proper OE look then you'll need to get hold of some xenon type headlights (commonly called "sharkeyes" - although Im yet to see them on the aftermarket scene for the Zaffy) and then fit some HIDs into these...

    Personally speaking due to the rarity of these lights (apart from buying a set brand new from Vx for stupid money) then Id just fit them in your standard lights.

    This is a very common mod on the Astra (basically the same car) and theres even a How-To in the usual place detailing what u need to do.

    Xenon kits can be had for approx £60 these days and should only take an hour or so to fit - and that includes removing the bumper and modding the bulb holders to suit.

    HTH



    EDIT: just re-read the post....are u actually just after some sharkeyes?

    If so then maybe Vx is the only option unless GBK (those who supply astra ones could get hold of Zaf ones)

    "sharkeyes" is just the informal term for OE Xenon headlamps (ie those fitted to vehicles with gas discharge lamps and lamp washers as standard)

    Vauxhall will gladly supply you these lamps but at quite a premium I should imagine....

    Im yet to see any aftermarket suppliers for the Zaffy though...although thats not to say there aint any.

    The part numbers for the relevant Xenon headlamps from Vx are

    93175700 LH-RH
    93175701 RH-RH

    93175702 LH-LH
    93175703 RH-LH

    Now Im not sure if the first two letters refer to LHD/RHD or whether its the last two letters which mean this...

    therefore best off quoting the part numbers to Vx and see how much they wanna rob u.

    Well the fella who i work with just spoke to Vauxhall for me (he gets discount through the garage in work) and they said i cant fit them too my car because there are wires and sensors ect that are needed and my car wont have them asked me what reg it was 05 Zaf GSi said there are sensors that go on the axles ect ect so i couldnt just swap them.

    Anyone have any idea what he was talking about as im not sure with lights and electrical stuff i thought they woulda just been a strait swap! or somthing but hey im known to be wrong from time to time lol

    Anyway im goin for a Brew and some breakfast now on my break lol
