    Go and check to be sure but i think its H1 - if your lights at the moment are xenon and not halogen then one of those kits is no use as the fitment is for a halogen bulb.

    Have a look it should be fairly obvious what type of bulb is in there, if u get stuck then take a pic

    As far as i know, if you have factory fitted xenons you'll only need some d2s bulbs, i'm waiting for my 8000K for my headlights as well :D already changed the foglights

    well here in my country i bought them from a guy who imports them.

    for the fog you'll need an h7 kit, the only issue i've found with it is where to mount the left side ballast, becuase the opther one i've manage to get the cable to the engine bay but in the left side the IC is in the way
