    aftermarket HID conversion - anyone done this?

    been looking at converting to HID and have seen 2 kits on the market - one at around Ł150 and another at around Ł220.

    what are other people's experience with such kits? recommendations? pitfalls? ease of fitting etc etc?

    thanks in advance!

    They are all pretty straightforward to fit and to be honest, having seen a couple of different kits i think they're all pretty much the same, i'd be tempted by a hong kong effort at about £80

    My mate bought a hong kong kit uk seller though with 2 years warranty.

    Quality is second to none 8000k maybe a bit blue but thats what he wanted.

    Go for it!

    I think RichA3Turbos selling these on his website for a good price and he's in the uk.
    They must be ok because Rich uses them in his car.

    I recently bought and installed the kit from Rich and its very good value and a decent product. The only downside was the delivery took approx 2 weeks, but the price was good and so was the product.
