    Vehicle : Vectra C facelift

    Trim : Design

    Engine : 2.2 Direct

    Year : 06/56

    Mileage : 79k

    Default My new xenon lights before/after

    Installed my 6000k xenon kit yesterday took a photo on my street at 4am before and after the install ,as you can see the light improvement is massive .

    Really pleased with the outcome got some really good advice from the forum so i thought i would share the results.

    Simple mod and a most needed one too as the factory lights are like candles .

    What would you suggest for my sidelights as they need an upgrade of some description 501 leds maybe ?

    i posted the pics on this thread

    They'll instantly put your bulb failure warning light on. Vec-C's don't like LEDs fitted to sidelights.

    The pics look like you have a shadow in the middle of each beam of light, you can see it on the ground. If so then you have your bulbs upside down, they just need turning 180 degrees.

    I have that shadow too Rushy, I thought there was only 1 way round they could go. Just as well you pointed this out, it is a tad annoying.
