Thanks, I had a good trawl through armed with part numbers and broken german but no luck...

Found one left unit for sale on a dodgy site but its 240 euro!!!! Might as well go back to OEM Xenon for that money!

Hi mate, if you want to use the D2S bulbs by all means you can do so using these adaptors and ballast kit. If you're better off with LED bulbs  :wink:

Legend!! This is what I'm looking for haha.
The H7 bulbs I linked above need adaptors as well though I think? They don't just go in the headlight as it is, need a bulb holder etc. for them?

So lost on all this lol.
nah you'll be fine as long as the bulb fits into the original location you should be able to use the clips for the H7.

Oh ok, because when the garage looked at fitting the H7 bulbs there wasnt a way to fit them because of the connections in the depo headlights.
Doing my head in trying to sort it all out.
