Sweden 25W OEM Xenon Headlights retrofit

I am about retrofitting Xenon headlights on my Mini R55 2008 and would like to know if anyone already made the retrofit?

The new 25W retrofit Xenon headlights are OEM equipment and are approved without headligt washers and dynamic levelling.

They are plug and play on R55 LCI but will require a fix to avoid any alarm on pre LCI cars.

Are they good? How are the illumination compared with standard 35W Xenon headlights?

You might want to search the American Mini forums, like Motoring Alliance and North American Motoring as several Americans seem to have fitted these units - I've only seen positive reports, but then when you've spent that much money, you probably are not in a hurry to say you wasted it....
