    putting hid kit into agel eyes?

    Are you aware they're illegal?
    Don't mean to sound like a dick, but a lot of people aren't.

              I'm always getting blinded on the road. Does my tits in, it's stock lighting on some more expensive cars.. probably the ones you mentioned.

                Aren't they illegal unless you have auto-adjusting projector lamps?

                    I think Dave was on about the OEM light when he said this.

                        Government website disagrees.

                        In the Department for Transport's (DfT) view it is not legal to sell or use after
                        market HID lighting kits, for converting conventional Halogen headlamps to HID
                        Xenon. If a customer wants to convert his vehicle to Xenon HID he must
                        purchase completely new Xenon HID headlamps. The reason for this is that
                        the existing lens and reflector are designed around a Halogen filament bulb,
                        working to very precise tolerances. If one places a HID "burner" (bulb) in the
                        headlamp, the beam pattern will not be correct, there will be glare in some
                        places and not enough light in other places within the beam pattern.

                        Once fitted to the vehicle it must have headlamp cleaning and selflevelling (which can be for the headlamp or can be in the vehicle
                        suspension - some expensive estate cars have "self-levelling
                        suspension" and that is adequate). Also the dipped beam must stay on
                        with the main beam.

                            Aftermarket HID's look tacky to me but if you must fit them go for 35w
                            55w is for bell ends. There's not a lot of glare from 35w but 55w aftermarket is worse than Range Rover HIDs
