    Don't go HID because they will blow your wiper motor... Do a search mate because that subject has been done to death!

    Side lights, fronts, mains and fogs about, 8-10 quid per set roughly speaking.. I got the interiors off eBay but I know t8ups does a full interior kit which is cheap. He knows his stuff and I ended up buying the wrong ones off eBay trying to do it myself.. The only ones I can't seem to get to work are the led number plate bulbs.. Loads of people have but mine just throw up errors... All led bulbs need to be canbus friendly and have built in resistors or they will throw up dis errors! P

    I have got these ones: (they are bright which give off a pure white light, with a tint of blue- not much)
