50w max legally. You could convert to HIDs. Cost more but you get loads more light from them.

Thats why most are illegal on UK roads!

They are illegal IF the headlight has NOT been tested for HID (which is pretty much any car really apart from some of the newer ones)

Nowhere at all on that site states that they must be installed in a tested unit for HID, otherwise they WILL be illegal. I don't think its a good idea to give people ideas for illegal items on a public forum....

EDIT:

Just found this...

Can't argue with the law...

I'll argue with you then. Firstly I told him his options, secondly petal, if you read my post it clearly says right at the beginning 50W max LEGALLY!!!!!

Finally, where does it say I recommend them??? It doesn't it just says they are available!!!

Quoted myself just so people can see :D

Very true, normally in the cheaper angel eye's light units its 2 leds soldered to wires. Simple take old ones off and solder some new ones in.
