    Just go on ebay and search for 'H7 HID' and see what comes up... Can get them from China for around £35 delivered now...
    Best to go for 6000k for the best balance between blue tint and good night vision!

    Thanks mate, bit confused tho, i want to convert both the dipped beams and sidelights, not really bothered bout main beams but they would be good aswell. To get both side and dipped does it mean i need 2 HID kits, or how does it work?

    Side lights you would just get LED ones mate... Cant HID them that would be stupid!

    You just need H7 HID kit for your dipped beam.. Have a look in the how-to section to see how to fit them..

    Sorry to hi-jack the thread but what's in the 'kit'? Do you just replace the bulbs with new ones? or is there anything else that needs altering to the original headlights/holders etc.?

    They are essentially just bulbs with a control box with them.

    Have a look in the how-to section and it shows the small modification you need to make to the bulb holder to make them fit. I was one of the first to fit them to a MK4 astra i believe
