    Default Location of HiD Ballast

    Can anyone tell me where they have mounted the ballast on the driver's side?

    I have fitted it, but would like to know how where others have put it.

    Mine is stuck with heavy duty Velcro with it wedged under the wing and onto the airbox. Been there for 6 months now, and not a problem for me.

    Im glad im not the only one lmao, I zipped mine to the air intake pipe. Really struggled to find any where else to put it, the leads do not seem long enough lmao. Put the other one inside the battery cover box.
