You can't actually get real xenon lights that are legal for your car,,,, insert legal jargon here !!! A lot of people use 'Night breaker' bulbs, readily available from e-bay and the likes.

The 'K' rating does not tell how bright they will be, but rather how warm the colour is. I think 3.5k is close to factory xenons, but most seem to go for 6k.

I think 35w is standard and I know you can go higher, I'm thinking this will produce more light?

The Whiter the bulb the lower the K rating, the higher you go the more "blue" in fact purple they go.

Are you guys talking about HID kits, as the OP was asking whats the brightest/best bulb he can use legally ? I personally use HID's in my car, but I have the projector lens, which makes it much more easy on the eye to oncoming drivers. I'm not a fan of people using these kits with the standard reflective headlights, as they scatter the light, and dazzle oncoming drivers, and generally give HID's a bad name.

Mike77 just to clarify this,

I haven't ever noticed 2 different headlight fittings on this Fiesta, can you post a picture at some point and I'll put a pic up of mine so we can all examine the difference on one page and see what will work?

Only issue is with the ST you cannot fit a HID Kit to one properly, the Fuse Box is about 5MM behind the lightbulb and there is no room to add anything extra other than just a bulb. 1st world problem.

Don't think it's projector though, will check on lunch, Odd I've never actually bothered to look at it properly.
