Check they dip the right way, they are a Germany company and most of the countries they ship to are left hand drive! Might be worth looking into. They are very expensive at 350 delivered! If you're just after a new set of headlights, a breaker would be a better and cheaper bet for a set of GTA black lights, if you're after the look then have a punt.

The original lights can be renovated.

The laquer can be removed with fine wet and dry paper, then they can be polished back to a shine.

Then fit some Philips Extreme power bulbs.

HID's are also illegal to retro fit unless it is done correctly. That includes self levelling, and a headlight wash.
