    No, it can be done removing the airbox and washer filler nozzle on the o/s n/s respectively and mounting the ballasts and cancellors inside the inner wing and battery box (again respectively)

    I went with HID direct 50W power and 6000K colour but changed the bulbs recently to 4300K which looks like the factory xenon colour on the other cars around.

    Sorry I know this has been covered countless amount of times!!!!
    No worries, glad to be of service


    Cheers Darren
    Hope this helps

    If it's a facelift Vectra then there's no room in the inner wing on the drivers side. Far tidier and easier to remove the bumper and headlights, then mount the ballasts in the dedicated space beneath the headlights.
