No Problem, it might have lost a mm or two from the angle of the photo but it looks as though its roughly 45-46mm from tip to base, 59 from tip to end of plugs

Apologies for the delay.

The length of the HID bulb is 50mm from metal base to the top. Here is a photo of an example showing this:

Let us know if you believe it will fit in regards to length in your headlamps without any problems.

Hrmm it looks like the bulb itself is appx 10mm longer than the stock bulbs, but looking at the clearance between the tip of the fitted bulb and the headlight slope there is a lot of room (at least a few inches), it is a little hard to tell because the plug of the bulb is so different to the stock ones. The kits aren't too expensive so id be willing to buy one just to try it but i worry about the rumor i heard that due to the extra heat these things push out and the nearer they sit to the headlight casing they can actually melt a hole in it. The kit + the cost of 2 extra headlights gets up there if it does go wrong.

In fairness im not sure which car exactly he was talking about he just said "Ive seen cars with holes in their headlights from these kits".


Is there literally no one on these forums who has one of these fitted in a 2013+ model? Surely someone must have tried by now??

As previously mentioned, we sold a kit to someone that had a facelift model and they were unable to use it. They stated the bulbs were too long. They did not elaborate on this. If you want to try that would be great.
