I have found HID XENON with 300 Euros. They're not cheap, right?

    Indeed, they aren't cheap. 300 euro sounds a lot though. £100 is roughly what your looking at for buying the kit and self fitting it. That's what i paid for mine anyway.

    Ok. How long have you had your XENON on your GP Abarth? Have you had any problems with them, or electrical glitches in car caused by them?

    About two months now. No, nothing. Everything is normal. I can just see much better on country roads near my house. I wanted them in my Mjet but was worried about blinding people. But i can honestly say they are not blinding. I haven't been flashed at all. I had Blue vision bulbs in my mjet and i got flashed a few times with them. When i got them had the choice of bulb colour. I went for 6000k so they are a bit blue'y but not too much. Also means they aren't so bright. I think 4500k (being a much whiter light) would be too bright for the GPA head lights.

    Everyone comments on how nice they looks. Just an ice blue colour. I'm glad i fitted them.

    I suppose you still have the warranty for the electricals of the car, right? :) Do they have a metal cap in front of the lightbulb?

    Yes, they do have a metal shield in front of the bulb. Im not sure. Sounds like it will effect my warrenty from what John is saying. But that will be my problem if it goes wrong.

    I have HID kit on my GP. You can see alot more with them and they are just plug and play. HID's use less power than standard bulbs aswell so dont draw as much power ;) Kits are about £100 and you will get everything you need in a kit. 2 ballasts, bulbs and all the wiring which just makes them plug and play.

    I think the lights are pathetic. Glow worms have tried to mate with them.

    I'll try upgraded bulbs first.

    lol! class!!
    your soo right too, I really dont like the lights and am planning on xenons for mine. They should have at least been an option on the car from new

    Off-topic, but can GP Abarth support LED lights too? I have also found Angel Eyes headlights that have LED on them. If not, can I deactivate the LED on those headlights?

    There was a thread on the FF about that. Search for angel eyes and I think you'll find it.
