    Default Vectra lights

    Ive bought a HID kit for my Sri, had them professionally fitted, re-alignment they still dont seem to put the light down on the ground still.

    Does any1 know how I can Improve them? Is it because of the projector bulb? Never had this before on a car so dont know how they perform?

    Thanks for any replys/ Advice

    Can't understand the problem you're having. Most on here including me who has fitted HID's have noticed a huge improvement on the standard lighting.

    Mine seem to work best with the silver things at 12 o clock then the bulb at the bottom. Try adjusting your beam level

    That's a bit silly. What if you have a full load on board? You won't be able to lower your lights down to stop dazzling oncoming motorists. You should have had them set on either 1 or 2 so that you still have some adjustment up or down.

    As to your other problem, have the bulbs been put in upsidedown?

    When the bulb is installed the metal rod should be at the top
