    Default Hid Help

    I eventually received my hids from hids - direct tuesday but decided it was best to wait until the forums were up and running before fitting .

    Can you hid guru's do me a favor and check the piccy below just to check it looks right before fitting





    Cheers guys

    Thats the same as mine mate. Although i cant get mine to stop strobing after i turn the ignition off, even with fitting 2 cancellors on the same side.

    I'm having the ECU programmed this weekend by a fellow member to resolve this problem.

    Hope it all goes well matey.

    When/what problems do people get when fitting HID's?

    I fitted a set from my last car and they seem to be fine.

    Turn the lights on and they come on ok, start the car and they stay on ok, turn the car off and the HID's turn off and the car goes onto sidelights.

    Is that right?

    (PS sorry to jump on your thread)

    From what ive read lee some hids have problems starting up,causing errors,strobing with engine on,strobing with engine off, etc etc

    Fingers crossed they will turn on and off like there supposed but then again im fitting them so maybe ..........................

    What the HOW2 doesnt tell you is how to get the original metal bit onto the HID bulb.

    Do yours have the metal bit fitted already?

    Yep - my bulb has the metal base and also my headlight has the spring clip to hold the bulb so i'm hoping fitting the bulbs takes less than a minute
