Verrry interesting!

UK regs do not mention HID's at all, ergo they are illegal.

HOWEVER new cars come in from the rest of the EU with them factory fitted as standard and so UK gov cannot refuse them being registered.

"In summary: it is not permitted to convert an existing halogen headlamp unit for use with HID bulbs. The entire headlamp unit must be replaced with one designed and approved for use with HID bulbs and it must be installed in accordance with the rules stated above."
