Angel eye headlamps and xenon conversion

Guys, i know its been done to death. I have searched but can't find the definitive answer.

Are these Mstyle units any good with hid/ballast kit? Anyone got them?

There are some cheaper units on Ebay but again are they any good....

Thanks in advance.

The 2nd option looks the better bet - but it doesn't say if they're OEM or aftermarket and whether or not they have to have a HID kit or use the real K1 (?) bulbs (plug and play)

I did look at them, but something tells me they aren't the one's in the picture - because they look OEM.

They won't be OEM. They will be aftermarket with aftermarket hid FROM CHINA, and they probably won't be self leveling.....

Is it worth doing or bound to bring a load of hassle and problems?

I'm not bothered about the Angel eyes. My last few cars have had Xenons and i miss them. I've uprated the current halogen bulbs to Philips xtreme. A very good upgrade but still not xenon quality.

I would love to do this to mine also as I miss the xenon quality, wish there was somewhere near Manchester that could sort this out for me.
