I'm not going to lecture you on the ins and outs you can make your own decision, but conversion kits are classed as illegal by the Dept for Transport and from what Iv'e heard on other forums are an almost guaranteed MOT failure. Only way around it it to a complete new headlight with the right optics, and as Ford don't make one it's probalby hard to get a legit one.

Is it worth the hassle?

the DfT's statement can be found here - http://assets.dft.gov.uk/publications/dft-information-sheets/aftermarket-hid-headlamps.pdf

The only real problems could start if a accident occurs...that's the only reason why I am reserved in buying a HID kit.
