Compact xenons

Been looking at a few 320td compacts, took one a spin and was overly impressed with it! Nice ride etc etc but anyways, if i was to buy one i dont think i could live without my xenons for very long, so question is? Is there a replacement light unit with projectors that i can get or can these

yea that's fine, you can retrofit your own xenons if you'd like. i'm afraid for the compact, the only other was is to go OEM

contacted them, all they supply is the bulbs wires and ballasts, not the projectors, so they are technically illegal in the uk. Need to try and retrofit projectors into the standard casing

no one sells projector for your car except for OEMs. so you'll have to try to retrofit them yourself. i could probably do it for you as well, but iono if you can live without your headlights for a couple of weeks
