Spoke to another dealer near Worksop will speak to owner on Monday they may lend a system to test .

Hi Lawrence,

This is interesting, my Antara has HID lamps fitted as standard, but I am looking at fitting them to another car. I found this site http://www.sinspeed.co.uk/are-xenon-hid-conversion-kits-road-legalwhich has some interesting facts. If your diamond has the same headlight units as the SE then it should not be a problem, although the SE also self levels etc and has washers. As to legality, like many things it appears to be just waiting for a court ruling.

Good luck and let us know how you get on.

Spoke to the electricians in Worksop the owner said after 2010 electrics get more sophisticated so not all kits will work.

They are willing to let me try a test kit for free to see if they work ok if no problems its around £55 for a quality kit.

They do different lumens and colours

Also thought about DRL daytime running lights.

They look great on Audis and Kia shortage you can get kits to wire in.

Would like the DRL in the headlamp so will need some further research

hi I am a member of Alabama just sent e mail off to see if they will send one set for trial.

I think these will be popular especially if wiring kit is good like the one ring do.

I could order multiple qty for members

Been looking for DRL and these are the best so far FASTASTIC FIND WELL DONE

Anyone got any other info ?

This. In reply to other link daytime running lights
