I have these in mine they look great (abit pricey for what it is), I recall when i asked them about HID, something about it not being road legal in these lights?

They may be ADR compliant until you fit HID or LED kits to them.I would rather spend that much money on something worthwhile like good tyres or some suspension mods......

Id rather avoid the worry of hid and use a led light bar instead. Cheap as chips and work a treat.
Suspension mods are a good thing also

I've been running these lights for over a year now (with HIDs) and they are worth every cent i paid, The build quality is superb, never had an issue or even been looked at twice by the police.
If you have the money to spare, I highly recommend them. I even had them modified by my local lighting specialist to look even better when indicating.

You can run HID but don't be surprised when you see the output. I've had HIDs in my Audi style lights for a year and never had any issues with cops. If anything, they look factory on a grey/silver car.

If you buy any projector headlight set, be sure to upgrade the projectors to something decent such as Morimoto or Profile. Makes a huge difference tbh.
