HID Kit Mini One D F56

Hi all,

Sorry if this has been asked before.

My next door neighbour fitted an HID 6000 Xenon kit to his merc today, I love it and would love these lights on my mini one d f56. But I've searched ebay bulbs.

Firstly, can you just put the bulbs straight in?

Secondly, can you get one for the always on fog lights in the bottom?

Sorry if it sounds silly, Ive no clue!

I've thoroughly researched this topic as I wanted to change the bulbs in an F56 base (no led headlights).

The bottom line is this

Headlight: H4. Only 1 bulb for both H/L
Driving lights: W5W/T10/194
Fog Lights: PSX24W/H16

The DRL and the fog ones are TOGETHER inside the small headlight below the main one.

To replace all three you need to be careful in selecting the same light temperature for all, otherwise the aesthetics of the arrangement is lost.

This is what I've done:

- H4: Phillips X-treme Vision +130% 3700K. Installed and working.

- W5W/T10/194: 194 CAN Bus LED Bulb 4500K. Installed and working. No error message. The temperature difference is noticeable, but not too much. With a 5000K I tested it looked almost blue and the difference is too big.

- PSX24W/H16: Undecided. Haven't found any LED below 5000K. If someone knows about a 4000K LED with this socket let me know. It does not matter if it is not CAN bus ready, as one can install a CAN bus warning canceler for $20 USD.
