HID kits are plug&splay so you can buy it and install it yourself. When it comes to give the C-HR back you can unplug it and put back the halogen bulbs.

ok so while we are discussing this again. Are there any things you guys think you should avoid if you get one of these "plug and play" kits?
They seem to vary on price quite a lot and also claim very different things between them.

Thought this might also feed into the original question :)

And no worry ans the forum is getting big and there are lots of cross over posts to contend with.

I think the main issue is that the market (ebay etc) is awash with cheap HID upgrades, whilst they will work most are not E marked and are therefore illegal in Europe, although I'm only aware of one person that's ever been stopped by the police, and his were so violet in colour it was an obvious modification. 3 points and a fine and advised to change them back.

When the question is asked about '3rd party xenon headlights' I assume that the poster already has xenon and is asking about replacement bulbs.

In the case of my two other cars they both have Xenons and Audi for one recommends Xenarc bulbs which are around £80 each, I use 2 for £10 ebay ones and have even run one of those with an 'official' bulb and can see no difference whatsoever.

I have the feeling that HIDs are a lot brighter than aftermarket LED kits that people are using for the C-HR or any other car.
With HIDs you also have the option to choose from 35w or 55w and i think 55w HID is brighter than any other bulb type.
