    Converting from Halogen to Xenon

    Hi all,

    I'm toying with the idea of converting my halogen headlights to projector xenon.

    The kit I'm looking at is this one: -

    Sounds like lots have done it in the USA, has anybody over here done it successfully?

    Cheers

    Dan

    Looks interesting... will they be auto-levelling when fitted into housings? If not you'll be in the same boat as 95% of others with non OEM HIDs... unfortunately not technically legal

    I agree. There seems to be no mechanism for incorporating self-levelling & washers.

    Converting from Halogen to Xenon

    Agreed, not technically legal and I won't have headlamp washers either.

    Better than blinding people with hid in reflectors though.

    Basically in the same boat as if I bought OEM xenons really.
