    hids direct do a good kit if you ring them up and mention the site you will get a discount i went for 5000k bulbs , make sure you get the vectra c canbus friendly kit to save any error messages popping up

    as for the ariel surround might be easier to buy a replacement part from vx i cant see it being too much for a bit of rubber

    The rubber isn't available on its own so you'll need to buy the whole aerial base or do a diy fix.

    Thanks for your quick reply guys . tbh with the rubber surround I was just going to use some black. water proof silicone lol...

    as for the hid kit I'll try them tomorrow . will they not ask me if I want the friendly kit ? Are they easy enough to fit ? ( don't fancy f***ing anything up ) & last question . is that the brightest or are they just the standard 5000k ? ..

    Thanks again

    if you dont have the nav and just a standard base then this may be what your looking for

    kev they are easy enough to fit i`ve done a few now and i`m not to far away from you if you do get stuck as for the temp 5000k is white the 6000k has a slight tinge of blue , if you go lower than 5000k they will start to look yellow and above 6000k blue going to purple the higher the number. they should send the " friendly kit" just make sure you tell them you need the canbus adaptors as you have a vec c

    I fitted the 4300k HIDs Direct Canbus Pro kit to mine a few weeks ago and love it. Really easy to fit on a pre-facelift. Just need a junior hacksaw or something to cut a slot in the current bulb holders. Some people have had issues with the Vectra C specific kit so that's why I went for the canbus pro one. Have no issues at all and my car is an 03 plate.
