    For those that didn't read the other thread in the regional section.

    The kits are HIDs Direct 2 are 50w 6000k and mine (silver vec) 35w 6000k

    Nobody needed cancellers.

    Ballasts were fitted in the wing on the pre-facelift and in a almost ready made cubby hole at the bottom of the facelifts light unit, all fitted with very sticky pads.

    Yes it was extremely cold and sleeting and raining.

    Ian's tea was nice and so was his loo (must have been the cold!)

    Any of those at the fitting session, please feel free you use the photo's and use your information! (As I'm just a snapper not a fitter....lol )
