Hi guys

Thinking about purchasing a pair of c4 OEM xenon head lamps for my c4 hatch. Will these go straight in or do I need any extras? Also is it possible to fit an after market hid kit to these?

My c4 is the exclusive trim so would the directional function of the headlamps just work?

Thanks

If your car does not have directional Xenons fitted it needs a new wiring loom, front and rear ride height sensors and headlight washers and the pre and post 2008 facelift ones may be a different shape. Retro fitting is not worth the hassle.

HID Kit - Click Here - whether or not they would be road legal though.....

For the HID kit you'll need some H7 size bulb retainers to put the HID bulbs into most come without these.

There are companies who will take your existing lights and do a proper xenon conversion to them. Proper xenon projector etc.

There was a guy on here who did the OEM retrofit, thing is unless you get lucky on ebay they are not cheap. £800 a side for the oem cluster.
