Xenon HID conversion on Volvo C30 T5

I bought of eBay a H7 5000k 35W Xenon HID conversion kit and I installed it on my 2011 Volvo C30 T5.

At first I did have the ballast inside the headlight unit however the ballast would get so hot you could not touch it. So I ended up taking out the ballast and mounting one just above the headlight and the other next to the fuse box.

I would not recommend buy a 55W HID conversion kit as a 55W produces over 35% more heat then a 35W HID conversion kit which could melt your headlight housing and/or projector.

Still a 35W 5000K colour HID produces 3400 lumens, Standard Halogen is about 1100 lumens. Lumens is the brightness.
