    Default New better quality hid kit fitted.

    Hi all, just received my new hid kit this morning from this company http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...=STRK:MEWAX:IT. I made the mistake of buying a cheap kit which flickered very badly even with the cancellors fitted then the kit stopped working, cost me about £40 with the postage. Anyway i found the above kit on ebay which i got for £65 with free postage. It has the slim ballasts etc, came with the cancellors, no flickering at all and seem brighter. Happy again because i had to run around with dim lighting for a while.

    Did you go for the normal H7 or the shorter H7C version out of interest?

    Yep the kit is spot on, the wiring to the ballasts are well sealed as the cheaper kit wasnt, the plug connections are tighter, the bulbs with having a metal base fit better. I didnt need the bulb holders as my bulbs are held in with metal wire clips, i think the bulb holders are about £10. Happy days, im on back shift today so cant wait to drive home in the dark.

    Oh well had the hids on last night and no flickering, but when i got home and turned the lights off i had strobing on the drivers side. So i had a look today, ive fitted cancellors to both sides as when i fitted the kit yesterday without the cancellors the lights worked ok when ignition off but when the car was started and the headlight switch was on the lights didnt come on and got the bulb warning on the dash, so i fitted the cancellors which stopped the bulb warning and the lights come on when the car is started but ive got strobing with the cancellors fitted. Ive tried taking a cancellor off one side which stops the strobing but get the bulb warning and same again the light doesnt come on when car started.
    Ive read on the forum that my car can be put on tech 2 to set it up for xenons but vauxhall charge a fortune. The strobing doesnt last long so i could live with it if it doesnt cause damage to the kit. Also i bought a relay kit but when connected the relay was buzzing like mad, is it supposed to do that.
    Cheers for any info.
