    Dont bother, fit oem or none at all, as apart from possible dis warnings, as last link showed, wiper motor gets blown on most, £300 part alone.

    I tried and failed. The HIDS supplier provided a relay kit to protect the wiper motor. Couldn't clear the bulb failure alarm for both front dipped lights. Also brake lights came on after a few seconds and wouldn't extinguish. Also tried VCDS to disable lamp testing, and trying to convince the computer that HIDS were fitted. Still failed. Returned the lights in the end.
