    Hi im going to buy a hid kit in a few weeks, im going for the 35watt ones. I was going to go for the 8000k ones, are they really that dim as i have the standard blue coated bulbs at the moment which the wife hates as they are really dull so i dont want to be buying a 8000k kit and having the same problem as i do with the standard bulbs.

    this is the kit you want nice and bright with a slight hint of blue so as not to attract the attention of the police and mention vectra-c.com and get 10%off
    oh and select the 6k option

    I've had both mate, had the 35w 6k kit first, it was an improvement over standard but not enough for me. i now have the 50w 4.3k kit and its MUCH MUCH better.

    i`ve put a 5000k kit in from hids-direct and imo its perfect i did have the 6000k in my vec b which looked nice with the blue tinge but they are not a patch on the 5000k which give a crispy white light and good night time vision

    get the 6000k 50watt ones and dont bother with HID's direct as they are no better than the Ebay ones you can get for £50.
    I have used the Ebay ones on 3 different cars and had no problems.
    It seems mental to pay what HID direct and the other well known companys charge for the same product. And you can almost guarantee there HID's come from china.
    Its like the difference between asda jeans and levi jeans. They are both jeans but one has a brand name and the other does not but they both do the same job.
