    I've got an X5 kit, which is 6000K and I wouldn't want the bulbs any 'bluer'. It's not the cheapest kit around (about £250 now I think) but it's very good quality. It passed its MOT with them fitted as well, so that's good!

    The OS ballast I stuck to the inner wing, and the NS ballast nestles between the side of the battery and the battery cover.

    If I was buying again, I'd go for a kit with 4300k bulbs, the same as OEM, and that's what I'm going to replace mine with when they go pop.

    I fitted a "genuine" kit off Ebay.
    One balast ont he back of the lock panel O/S, other on the inner wing N/S.
    Had them 12 months without any problems.

    The OEM ballasts were mounted in small cages underneath the headlamps on my S3.
