    this guide is for the MK4, but it should give you a rough idea of what to do

    hid

    you have to take the bumper off to put them in unfortunately but at that it isnt a big job the bumper is only clipped on really with two screws at the arches and grill, if you get stuck with them give me a shout, i got my hids for under 100 and it was from hids direct, would reccomend them to anyone

    Im thinking about fitting HID's in to my Astra mk5, was wondering is the wiring etc, easy to replace once the bumper is off?

    and what headlamp would you recommemend for me to buy, angel lights? or standard?

    i took the bumper and lights out to do mine.
    mounted the ballasts under the lights on the crash bar.

    had to play about with the retaining clip on the lights as they needed "slight modifying" so that u could lock the hid bulb back in place.

    My headlights are the reflector style light and even tho i bought H7r bulbs theres a bit too much glare for my liking so gonna purchase some projector lights and swap them over.
