Very tempting, easy to install? My only worry would be my inteptitude in fitting it in to the existing wiring so they can actually be used
If you can change your standard headlight bulbs, you can fit one of these kits m8. It's as easy as that.
I put up a guide on how to do it on the auld Calibra here:-

Yep, I went for a 6000k kit. This was after a lot of digging around on the internet to try and decide. I was going to go for an 8000k kit first, but it turns out that the 6000k is actually brighter in performance than the 8000k one and this is what I was most concerned about. Wasn't interested in "looks", i just wanted the best headlights I could get.
The 6000k kit still looks great and as I said earlier, still has a wee edge tint of "ice blue". Looks identical to the lights you see on Mercs etc.
The 8000k kit is a bit too blue for my liking, and doesn't throw as much light out.
I've spoken to 3 guys who have carried out this conversion, all of which went straight away for the 8000k kit. Every one of them said if they could go back and buy again, they would have went for the 6000k kit.
They take at least 50 hours burn time to "bed in". The 6000k kits progressively increase in performance as they charge up when first switched on, takes a minute or two, you can see them getting brighter as they warm up.
