    Default 50w hid kits fitted to Signums

    Hi do any members have the 50w hids fitted on Signums, I have spoke to HIDS DIRECT and they are only recomending the 35w Cambus pro kit, as they say they have had problems with the 50w kit on Signums.... But they do sell the 50w kit for the Vectra C with cancellers, has anybody fitted this kit on a Signum etc..... I thort they were basicly the same front end as a lot of parts ive bought are the same on both vehicles!!!! Any info on your experiences would be great. Thanks RED

    The front ends are exactly the same, so are the electrics. if it works on a vec, it will work on a Signum.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Default Hi Big Sig

    Thats what I thort but was confussed when HIDS DIRECT told me that the system was not suitable for my car but they were advertising it for the Vec... then I was told if I did buy it and I had problems with the kit I would have no come back because the kit was only recomended for the Vec!! and they would have done testing on the signums to come to the conclusion that its not compatible. Thx RED

    Ask yourself whether 50w is really necessary.

    I've got 35w, 6000k in my Vectra and the light output is more than adequate.

    Don't be mislead by the wattage difference between halogens and HIDS.

    A standard 55 watt halogen bulb emits approx 1100 lumens.
    A 35 watt 6000k HID bulb will emit approx 3200 lumens.

    In other words a 35 watt 6000k HID bulb produces 3 times the amount of light than that of a 55 watt halogen bulb.

    Hi thx for all the replies, I know what your saying Dave and only decided to upgrade to the 50w hids because I also have a Omega 3.2 elite which has 35w hids as standard and ive never really thort them that bright, and after looking at the 35w kits @ 3200 Lumens and the 50w kits @ around 4500 Lumens it did sound a good option. I will have to give it some more thort then make a decision.
