    Default HIDs with Half Canbus

    Im sorry about this as its probably been asked a thousand times, but has anyone fitted HIDs with a half CANbus Veccy? I have a pre face CDTi 150 and am considering them. I have emailed HIDs-Direct but have heard nothing back so far so thought Id ask on here.

    Ive heard about the flashing problem on full CANbus cars but is this a problem on half CANbus ones? Has anyone got any links to a kit that works well?

    Also, and finally (sorry, sorry!) I would want to upgrade the rest of the bulbs in the headlights and the fogs to look like HID ones. What do I need to do to get that effect?

    Sorry again!

    I have. I had to fit cancelers to get rid of the bulb error. I bought them as compatible to my car so when they didn't work I just left bad feedback and linking to another supplier, they soon sent me out the cancelers FOC (It want Hid Direct by the way). The same Kit I had worked fine without cancelers on another members Facelift but when he sold them to a pre facelift owner they did the same as mine.

    you can look on ebay for hids direct or even phone them and tell them your a member on here they offer a further 10% discount to members

    http://shop.ebay.co.uk/hids-direct/m....c0.m270.l1313

    tell them that your after CANBUS compatible HIDs for the Vectra C and they will sell you the correct set for the car ... i had a set of cancellers on my old Signum (preface) but the new one doenst need them so its touch and go if they are needed ...but for around a tenner difference when you order them its worthwhile having them as a redundant back up if needed

    the choice is personal on colour 4300k is very oem 6k has a nice blue tint to it

    then you need to decide if you want 35W or 50W for the luminence (brightness) most seem happy with 35K but if you drive alot of country roads that are poorly/unlit then i thoroughly recommend the 50's

    am i reading that you have LED's fitted (sidelights i presume)- if so then thats why you have the flickering - you shouldnt have any flicker on the HIDS

    There's no difference between a full CANbus car and a half-CANbus car as far as fitting HIDs is concerned; the differences between half- and full- are more to do with the stereo.
