Hi Andy, have a look at this thread, there is a photo of mine on there showing the hid and the armoured cable which leads from it to the bulb, also my headlight is upside down in the engine bay but it shows where the hid fits in a well under the headlight, as you can see mine stopped working after rain as it was sitting in water but started working again after it dried out and I used silicone sealent to waterproof it.

As far as I know all other wiring is standard.

I am sure you know but watch out for the 30000 volts the hid uses to start the bulb, once running the xenons only use around 30 watts, they certainly light up the countryside though.

Good luck if you do this conversion, keep us posted.

A problem well stated is a problem half solved !
