    Default HID kit arrived today

    Hi all..Ordered this kit
    1 x Vauxhall Ultra 35w HID Kits (Vauxhall 35w) = £66.50
    Vauxhall Vectra C
    Color Temperature 6000k

    from hids-direct and got the club discount which in turn paid for my silvertec indicator bulbs.Very fast delivery ordered thursday at 2pm and got the kit today at around the same time..Just need to install now.
    Are the kits easy to install on the facelift vectra?

    Piece of cake if you first remove the bumper, then remove the headlights to mount the ballasts underneath in the dedicated recess.

    You might find one of the plugs doesn't go through the 20 or 22mm hole you have to cut for the grommet to fit in. You've two choices, cut off the spade connectors, poke the wires through and crimp on two new spade connectors; or do what I did, remove the offending plug and refit once the wires have been shoved through the hole.
