Would have thought so if the input can be 12 or 24v.

Email or ring company to be 100% sure.

long as the bulb is correct type h7 or whatever the lorry takes then i dont see any problems. ive seen some courier type large vans, the renault ones with hids in my area...

the bulbs might pop, they cost a tenner to replace if someone can't definitely give you a 100% answer i think its worth the risk. hids cost around 40quid these days anyway...

if you buy hid kits from many sources and look at them you will quickly realise they all come from the same 2 or 3 factories. they just have different boxes/packaging so why pay £100 when the same stuff costs £50 elsewhere.

aye, what i was thinking. my friend has got the above kit in his new fiesta mountune, and they seem decent for the price was jsut wondering if someone could work out from the spec if they where decent or not i.e not as bright as the £100+ versions ?

i don't know what canbus is but if you referring to whether you need warning cancellers then you don't since the corolla doesn't have bulb out warning in the first place.

in my friends a3 and mk5 golf the warning thing is a real pain in the rear!

i can get them for £30 each if i travel a bit so including cost of my fuel and the hassle factory call it around £40 to my door. £50 seems the most common price on ebay where people are buying them from places like i do and then putting their £10 drink on top and putting them on ebay.

and £150?!?!
