    Default Help wanted with hids

    hi guys im after some more info on HIDS for my vectra, it's a 2006 sri could someone please let me know what kit i need and also if i put hids in the standard beam can i also buy a separate kit to put in the full beam or can i just ad extra bulbs into the new balasts, also im guessing some new side light bulbs will b required to get rid of that orange look so can you point me in the right direction for these, oh and one more thing is there anything i can do to the fog lights to make them fit in with the new hids, new bulbs or hid kit required.

    I wouldn't recommend using HID's in your main beam due to them being slow to react (for headlight flash etc).

    However if you did want to do it you'd need two kit's, 4 bulbs and 4 ballasts (and 4 bulb failure cancellors if not built into the ballasts)

    This is what you want mate, they also do MTEC sidelight bulbs which will give a crisp white light, btw if you mention Vec-C you may get a 10% discount

    I would just buy a decent set of standard h7 bulbs for the main beam as very few will ever see both on at the same time.

    As for fog light bulbs you could also fit some hids in there if you really wanted

    MTEC's are just normal 501 bulbs and will work fine (problems arrise when you use led's)

    The rest is all plug and play
