    Default Hid help please

    Hi guys I have a 2006 facelift full canbus veccy estate with bulb warning indicators

    I am looking into hids and want to clear a few rumors up before I buy

    These are the kits I'm looking at 1st of all what you think of the
    I'm on a tight budget

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...=STRK:MEWAX:IT

    That is the 55w

    Or the 35w I don't know which is better

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...ht_8510wt_1008

    Secondly if I activate the afl or xenons through Vauxcom will this stop the bulb warning coming on

    Also about all this flickering etc will I get this and how would I stop this from occurring
    And last of all should I go for 6000k or 8000k

    Any more help or advice greatly appreciated and they don't look too hard to fit

    Neither of them kits will fit as you need H7's not H4's.

    I got my 35w 6000k from HIDS4US. No bulb errors, no flickering. No work done other than fitting them. Yes, a bit more expensive but if you weigh up how much those ebay ones would cost to send them back to Kowloon, Hong Kong if they didn't work or became faulty, then it could well be false economy.

    Firstly,I haven't read all the posts so I don't know what other members have said,but I would steer clear of them.Why?,well I bought two sets,from different companies,which were obviously supplied from the same source,and......they look very suspiciously like the type you are thinking of buying.The problems I had with them were that they flickered all the time (even with cancelers fitted), overheated to a temperature so hot I burned my hand when I touched them to check them out when they cut out after about an hours running.Think long and hard about costings,because it is true,YOU REALLY DO GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!!!.As for the colour temp,I had the 6000k 35w, very nice but blue, so I changed them to the whiter 5000/4300. FELIXX.
