    Go and check to be sure but i think its H1 - if your lights at the moment are xenon and not halogen then one of those kits is no use as the fitment is for a halogen bulb.

    Have a look it should be fairly obvious what type of bulb is in there, if u get stuck then take a pic

    As far as i know, if you have factory fitted xenons you'll only need some d2s bulbs, i'm waiting for my 8000K for my headlights as well :D already changed the foglights

    well here in my country i bought them from a guy who imports them.

    for the fog you'll need an h7 kit, the only issue i've found with it is where to mount the left side ballast, becuase the opther one i've manage to get the cable to the engine bay but in the left side the IC is in the way
     
  6. sorry i didnt realise where u lived..silly me ive had a look on ebay and have found some bulbs but they are a little more money than expected they are £45 a pair plus p&p and are only 6000k rated whereas i realy wanted 8000k but o well ill keep looking
