There is no such thing.

The HID bulb format is completely different than the H1 or H4's. I just put HID in my E30M3 yesterday. Huge difference in light and focus over the sealed beams. When I put the high beams on, they pale compared to light put out by the HID's.

Your best choice is to get H4 adaptors for the standard Phillips HID bulbs and use those. Cost me $50 each, but the bulb fit into that and the adaptor fits into the lens. the H4 wires hold both in place. I'll take some pictures later today and post them.

Clarke,
The kit that i purchase Is an H1 version
real HID system.And I'm using this on my E-36
that I converted into the euro elipsoid
lighting system. the Euro light came in with H1 hallogen bulb. I'm on the second stage on my
upgrade but unfutunately I mess up one of the
light bulb trying to get it into the housing.
sorry I should have metion this on my original post that it's not for my E30M3.
