I think this invoives changing the entire headlamp unit. I'm not aware of anyone offering this for cars as old as ours. I could be wrong though, but where would the profit be?

Of course if you want to go the non-legal route you'll be looking at any number of suppliers of HID bulb replacements, but you risk blinding every oncoming car.  Cool

Hi Dave
"but you risk blinding every oncoming car. " thats not all ways true, I fitted mine a few months after I got the car and had set up with the main dealer , and have never had
any on flash at me (to say I am blinding them), and have passed every MOT since

I think it technically illegal though, isn't it? Because of that very risk. Something to do with the reflectors in halogen headlight units not being up to the job and risking a dodgy spread pattern.

I'm guessing you got yours done before the law changed.

Mind you, I'm prepared to accept that the law is an ass! It frequently is. In any case, I doubt the OP will find a proper, 'legal' headlamp conversion kit.

What bulbs did you use in yours? Might help the OP (if he ever returns).
