    Good old headlight bulb has gone again,so its time to invest in some Hids.

    Me and my dad have both bought from HID's direct and not had any problems, which is fine. But like John has already said, they seem to let them self down abit on the aftersales service.

    Vehicle : Vauxhall Astra-J

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 2.0 CDTi

    Year : 2013

    Default

    got mine from www.hids4us.co.uk

    However, it seems this company is following suit with hidsdirect and letting their customers down as well.

    I wonder if its a supplier issue and all these HID selling companies have got hold of a faulty batch of hid kits from china?

    I think i'm gonna go for another set of these.

    http://www.ultimatestyling.com/produ...rsion-kit.html

    They are the same as my first set and the only thing that ever happened in the 3 years I had them was one bulb failure (replaced under the 18month warrenty) and then a ballast failure. I decided to buy another kit after the ballast went but I stupidly went for a cheapo hid's direct one.
