    They aren't that cheap to do properly but I'd recommend doing i properly. VOSA have informed that in the near future Xenons will be checked to make sure they are type approved etc. We have also have people coming in with rectification notices issued by the police for having incorrect type of bulbs fitted.

    lol i bought my car second hand but did look 4 xenon's as part of the spec but nothing came up when i bought mine but if i sell ym car then it will defo be on the must have list , it is a bit of a grey area when it comes 2 xenon's coz of the colour temp u have some are just 2 blue and some are 2 bright and incorrectly adjusted etc but mine pasted the mot with them in because i went for the white ones so the are very close 2 oem spec ones but i will keep an eye out on ebay etc.. fingers crossed something will turn up
