    How easy are HIDs to fit?
    What comes in a pack?
    And do they require drilling??

    How easy are HIDs to fit? Piece of Piss - There's a How-To
    What comes in a pack? Ballasts, Bulbs, relevant wiring (and some irrelevant wiring which u keep in the box!)
    And do they require drilling?? No
    Fit them in std headlights and u need to modify the brown bulbholder as showin in the how-to

    If aftermarket lights are fitted - ie where no additional bulb holder secures the bulb in place then they are even easier - just pop them in place of the original bulb....... plug the bulb wiring into the ballast and the other end of the ballast connects to the plug on the car harness

    simples

    look in the how-to section would be a start

    as for the drilling......different car - different method

    They make such a differnce. Make sure ya get led sidelights and a HID kit or Xenon's for yer fogs aswell. It doesn't look that well with the halogen bulbs in the them in contrast to the hids
