    Yeah oem ones, aftermarket ones tbh are never as good & from all reports they could be added to mot test & then found to be illegal given beams are wrong, auto levelling systems needed & washer jet system in place, others do run aftermarket versions but for me I wouldnt fit in this case anything but oem xenons with the proper kit.

    Apparently there a nightmare to fit even if you do get hold of OEM or even genuine ones.

    You need all sorts of extra bits to get them to work.

    Costs 100,s mate.

    Not worth the hassle.

    Well after doing several jobs on headlights myself, I wouldnt say nightmare, time consuming but if done correctly it is well worth the time & effort & cost, they look much better than crappy aftermarket, they work with the cars components properly & wiring wise wont cause any issues where as aftermarkets are always cropping up with issues.

    Cost well always buy UK spec ones as they're not interchangeable & just keep an eye on ebay for the headlights & associated parts, bixenon are better & bixenon adaptive are the dogs nads as mine are, 100% well worth my time effort & cost anyday, love them.
