clear story and all known by me but this still does not answer my question.applematt said:AllHID units look like they are behind a lense, its the only way to focus the light from the arc unit... while H7's can be behind a lense like the old ford puma et.al - but normally they are clearly visible via the headlamp.
to be honest: i was just looking for some (technical) answers, not to start a discussion about xenon modifications.Essex_boy said:Sounds like you should have just got the factory fitted Xenon lights as there are cheep versions available but you get what you pay as they look real cheep and the more expensive retro fits that do look ok, well after the cost and all the hassle of fitting them you would not have saved much money.
Matt, this is not the answer to my question.applematt said:if the original headlamp has a lense to hide the H7 then the replacement bulb will be behinda lense also - so you wont see it!
hid replacements are designed to mimic the original fitting - if you get the right kit.
So the answer is yes
