    So I have found a car I like, it has full spec for its year: 56 plate, low mileage, black, cruise, symphony cd changer HU, heated seats, arm rest yadda yadda.

    The wierd thing is it has auto levelling headlights and headlight washers...but no xenons. Just normal halogen headlights.

    This makes me wonder - has the dealer or whoever sold it to the dealer taken the xenons out and sold them and put normal halogens in? Doing this would make them about £600 give or take.
    And therefore if I wanted to install xenons would it simply be a case of buying a pair and plugging them in?

    Thanks!

    Sounds dodgy in any case. What you could do is ask the seller for the service booklet. That should have a list of all option codes fitted to the car at factory. I can't remember it offhand but there are a few websites that decode the option codes if you enter them to the text field.

    Then you would either know that they were fitted at factory and taken out, or fitted later and removed again.
    As for installing them with plug and play, I'm really not sure.

    You sure it hasn't had an accident?
