a good kit not too bright will look great
i had a 6000k kit in my car and they looked great, improved night driving dramatically

dont go crazy and get anything too bright and chavvy or youll blind every driver on the road

most kits are plug and play, really easy to fit
hardest part i found was hiding all the wires under the bonnet.

dont buy a cheap ebay kit, theyll burn out and catch fire

very true,the ones fitted by the manufacturers are self levelling which of coarse these kits are not.

Don't they need to have washer jets fitted too.

Yes, The heat from the bulb can bake dirt on the light lens then crack the lens once it gets brittle.

You also need to take em out when you take your car for MOT or your car will fail (I learnt the hard way)

mines passed a MOT no problems

If the beam pattern is ok they will pass

I have got my HID fitted by a garage. Thatguy was great. No problem at all, and really is over 10 time brighter.
He is in newcastle, if you want, I can give you his number

As long as the beam patten is correct, it WILL NOT fail the MOT unless your running 10000k bulbs.. 6000k is fine..

Its a very grey area at the moment

Just cos it will pass the MOT dos not mean it is legal.

It is against the Construction and Use Regulations.
