    Default Recommend me a HID kit.

    Ok guys, I'll try and keep this short, I installed a 35W 6000K HID kit a couple of weeks ago, I had an initial problem with the headlamps strobing and giving bulb failure warnings when the engine was running, this didn't always happen / was intermittent.
    (Neither was supposed to happen according to the description / advertisement)

    I contacted the supplier who was very helpful and who sent me a pair of load resistors free of charge, I installed these and the headlamps didn't work at all !!!.

    I again contacted the seller and after advising me to remove the load resistors, they then supplied me with a set of warning cancellers, again free of charge.

    However before the warning cancellers arrived I managed to have the Xenon headlamp setting in the on board controller activated and the problem of the strobing and bulb failure warnings appeared to be illiminated.

    The only problem that I am left with now is that the HID's randomly flicker, for varing periods of up to Ten or so seconds, (Not like strobing) this can happen either when I am driving along or stationary, and may happen Two,Three or Four times in Five minutes and then not happen again for the best part of an hour or more.

    I'm thinking of sending the whole lot back to the supplier and hopefully with your good peoples guidence, getting another set that "Plug and play" without ANY problems from an alternative seller, but before I do that, do any of you guys know if fitting the warning cancellers that I have been supplied with might remedy this problem ?,
    if not and I do end up sending the whole lot back, can any of you good folk point me in the direction of a set of 35W 6000K HID headlamps that will "Plug and play" and work faultlessly when fitted to a facelift, full Canbus, 56 / 07 reg / Vectra C / 1.9 CDTi / SRI

    Your advice / comments would be much appreciated,

    Thank you and regards,
    Saxman.

    I'm pretty sure you just need to fit the warning cancellers to eliminate the flickering problem.... worked for me.

    I'm seriously considering this kit and will not accept any probs with it as it will go straight back if any probs.

    Can you advise us of the kit NOT to buy?

    I have a 57 facelift, I bought the 35w 6K kit from hids direct, no problem at all, I didnt even need to fit the extra cancellers that are supplied with it..... I now look forward to night time driving now as I can see where Im going.
