    Hi,

    There have been lots of threads regarding this, it can be done but costs alot, about £350 a headlight from Vauxhall as you would be luck to find them for sale then you need to find someone that knows how to wore them as the connections are not the same.

    Do a search and it will bring up lots of threads. Would be looking at around £1k to do it

      Some one has done it .........thread about some where.!?!?
      BUT
      fitted the afl units, and they all work apart from the self levelling and beam adjust part as this would involve mega extra wiring etc to all sensors that come on car fitted with it at factory.......

          yup, it can be done... a lot of work though. And does require modifications to afl units and your car's loom. I would only suggest going ahead with it if you REALLY REALLY want them!

              You can buy Hella Dynabeam headlights for about £500 for both light units and there simple plug and play, however although they look exactly like AFL's they only come with halogen bulbs so to get the lighting effect of AFL's you have to get a HID kit, a decent one is about £200. So your lookin at about n£700 if you go the Dynabeam and HID kit route.

              Personally id rather spend that money on a re-map and RARB.....

                your cheapest way of doing it is finding some used AFL units (can be purchased for about £200 for the pair from scrapyards) then fitting yourself and include the ballast + HID's

                So in theory you can fit AFL's for about £220 all in. I know this because i have done it!

                    I brought my kit from HIDS4U, superb kit, I brought the 5000K bulbs, as I don't like blue lights. I paired them up with 85W main beams. I'm happy with it
