    Hids direct seem to be the preferred choice on here for the vec so would say that they would be ok in the Insignia.

    only problem i can think of is the insignia's that don't have xenon lights as standard don't appear to have the projector headlamp so might attract unwanted attention

    In short, the standard headlights on the insignia are reflector type and not suitable for HID upgrades because they will scatter the beam.

    i think it would be either a case of getting standard xenon headlamps retrofitted or waiting for someone to start manufacturing after market headlamps ie most angel eye headlamps come with projectors rather than reflectors

    mate yours should be the same as ALL vectra's have projectors , my pic is also very deceiving as that wall was not far from the car at all and the snow was bouncing the light back , let me know if your around after dark , and after 11pm and we can compare if ya like , (finish work at eleven)
