    Thumbs up (Another) NOOB HID Question

    Hi All,

    Hi All,
    New to site, but been on various vx forums for a while, Ill save this for the intro section...

    Just bought another Veccy...

    My headlights are like candles (Sri Facelift)
    NEED to upgrade to HID's!
    But I have a research problem!

    I understand my main beam are H7 and my high beam are H1 bulbs.
    So am I correct in thinking I will need two HID kits (i.e. 4 x ballasts) for both main beam and high beam?

    Or is this where Bi-Xenon comes in? LOL

    Sorry for such a dumb question to anyone in the know but never had to buy aftermarket lights before and google has too much poopoo Im struggling to sift thru it!

    Cheers

    Thanks for rapid reply 150cdti.

    I dont see the many, many kits on ebay mentioning the cancellers, thought I understand what they are for, but as they are not mentioned I assume they dont come with these kits? So where would I aquire these, or are the supplied with the kits purchased from more reputable sources?

    I mainly do urban/motorway driving so maybee i can make do witht the main beam set for now...
    Cheers

    Thx for that code, I had already read that as this site ranks well in google
