    xenon or bi-xenons?

    Does anybody know the difference......I have googled it briefly and managed to get on a Vauxhall forum where the guys were spouting about how powerful their 8000watt xenons were haha..... so i thought id ask a set of pro's like your kind selves.

    Im looking at buying a HID kit for the misus BMW Mini, either the 4300k or 6000k bulbs......on ebay they seem to be going for between 40-90 for the full kit..... and they all look the same ballasts.

    Has anyone had any experiances with these, i presume i need to make sure that the bulb fitment is the same, other than this i cant see that theres anything else i need to check....looking for confirmation of the same

    Xenon = Xenon light for dipped beam only, i.e main beam still retains a halogen bulb.

    Bi Xenon = both dipped and main beam are Xenon.

    I cant see any probs fitting a set to a Mini, I would go for whatever is cheapest. Im sure your aware of the legality (or lack of!) with such a retro-fit?

    Its been done to death on the forum a few times now, search for lots of info on this regarding auto-levelling and washers along with the fitment into non-projector lenses. Many people seem to have then fitted thenm and seem quite happy with them.

    cheers guys..... have had a look on previous posts and TBH everyone seems split about the legality, i suppose that would depend on the reflecters....will have a look out for a mini forum i think....see what the word is there
