    Standard Headlight explanation?

    As you have projectors already then fitting Xenon/HID bulbs is not too difficult. I think there is a write up somewhere .

    Standard Headlight explanation?

    The vin decoders have not been working too well recently. You could try observing the light's behaviour whilst switching on at night , Xenons have a distinct "flicker" for a fraction of a second then stabilise and if you have height adjustable lights on the light switch they are halogen. cheers

    Standard Headlight explanation?

    yes ,as it is an lci it would have projector headlamps , but whether it is xenon or halogen dipped depends on your particular spec. does yours have the xenon option ?

    Hard to start in cold after around 15 hours

    is the starter motor cranking good and strong , it is common for the them to lose some guts with age and they just don't spin as they should which results in slow/poor starting.
