It is possible to get this on the corsa c.

I should be getting the 2004 front lights soon and think they would look good in xenon.

so is this possible or will it cost 's to convert???

hold on. you lot gettin confused. a hid bulb alone costs about 150 notes. later c have bi-zenon. all it is is a purple reflector in a ballast housing. hid id gas discharge, and to get this you need 12v-25000v transformer new wiring looms and bulbs. i only ever done one on a vectra b and parts alone were over 1k.

yesh. not gas discharge. normal h7 bulb like in yours but there is a ballast reflector(round ball with purple on it) that gives it a more defined beam pattern.
