  16. Bi Xenon HID conversion. Top banana.

    Just fitted a ninety quid HID kit to My Vara. It took half a day or so to fit and was a bit of a squeeze to get the ballasts in (the instructions where pants) but it all went together pretty neatly. I was a bit worried what the pattern would be like but it's not too bad at all. Bit of stray...
