In general,we do not allow the retrofitting of HID lamp systems on existing vehicles, unless it is duly certified by the vehicle manufacturers.

This is because converting the existing headlamps to HID headlamps would require the entire headlamp assembly, including the electrical system, to be replaced as the reflectors and lenses are different from those in a conventional halogen headlamp.

In addition, the wiring of the existing headlamp system would not be able to handle the much higher starting current required for a HID headlamp system. This could cause extensive damage to the headlamp assembly and electrical system and therefore could pose a fire hazard to road users.
