    Default Facelift HIDs query

    Do you need to use bulb holders or should the bulb clip into the standard holder in the headlight?

    Did you clip them in while you had the headlight out?

    And you didn't use the holder that was in the box?

    i didnt take the headlight off, i only have the 1.8 so theres lots of room in the bay lol but no i didnt use them, see i had hid's in my old megane, it needed the holder, cuz it was the actual holder that screwed into the lamp, but with the vec, the little jutty out bit of the bulb just clipped in? if that makes any sense.

    I haven't used the clips, just thinking maybe that's the cause of the flickering if the bulb is moving a bit. Will investigate further on Thursday.
