I know the law has changed about HID's i just dont know what the exact details are tho. I'm thinking of changing my facelift headlights for xenons and automatically thought of the conversion kits on ebay. I had to fit them on my e36 as driving at night with the halogen bulbs was horrific. For that conversion I needed to install shrouds or I was just another Ahole blinding everyone. So with that in mind does the e39 headlights (facelift) need shrouds? I have seen bulb adapters on ebay are these for making sure the longer xenon bulb is the correct distance from the projector negating the need for shrouds?
What is the legality of conversions these days? I have washers and I have the headlight adjuster on the dash.
If conversions are illegal can I just buy a 2nd hand set of oem xenons and fit them or is it more complicated with self leveling and will I need to take it to the dealers to get programmed in? How much should I expect to pay for such items?
As always any help is much appreciated.
