    Default All the benifits of HID without the hassle?

    Hi there, was wondering if someone could tell me if there is some kind of straight swap HID/LED headlight conversion, as I'm after all the benifits of HID but without the hassle of faffing about with wires and that. (Electronics is not one of my strong points lol!) Are there bulbs you can buy that are bright and whitish/blue that you could straight swap? Appreciate the help in advance!

    You get loads of blue bulbs mate but honestly HID's are simple to fit. It's all plug and play

    Ive got some of the blue coated bulbs in my headlights at the mo, they look good, slight blue glow to them but the light output is poor. I can get away with them as i drive the veccy more than the wife in the dark but she hates them so hids for me in the near future.

    The only tricky bit is access, the electronics are all plug+play, it really is as easy as that.

    Fortunately with my (surgeons) hands i fitted mine without having to remove the airbox or bumper!

    HIDs are just tops, i now wince at the thought of how much i spent on different bulbs prior to taking the plunge.

    I had a look at the How 2 for it and I'm just not sure, he's talking about resistors and capacitors I don't mind getting my hands dirty with mechanical stuff but I'm sure I'd mess this right up!! I might have another look and try to convince myself. I've got a facelift, is this going to be a problem if I go for HIDs?

    You absolutely cannot wrongly connect them, trust me.............well the kit i used anyway.

    If you dont mind the mechanical side of things, then go for it. I dont have a mechanical bone in my body and it was straightforward.

    I used the H7 premium canbus kit from HIDs4US in my facelift.

    I think someone on here bought the exact same ones, but bought seperate cancellors too just in case
