    Default HIDs is it worth it?

    With MOT rules due to change next year I thought it might be interesting to get people opinions on fitting/removing HIDs

    Trim : XP1

    Engine : 1.9 CDTi 150

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 66000

    I do have them, find them awesome, but if these changes go ahead (in Jan 2012 I am led to believe) then I don't think I can be arsed to keep taking them out for MOTs

    As above, If you have a pre facelift you will never go back... hid's make a massive difference, money well spent

    Thats fine, but i belive that with the HID's its a kinda if you have not had them you dont know what your missing type thing.

    when i drove the wife punto up from falkirk the other night i realised exactly what i was missing.

    but with the new rules im sure it will put a stop to folk not having them considering getting them massive shame really as they are one of the biggest improvements in safety the vec can have on the market if done correctly in my eyes

    This is my first Vec C and I heard swapping the bulbs was a massive pain in the derrier.

    I see a lot of badly fitted HID's and once I've got my vision back after being blinded, I mutter the words "effing tw@" under my breath
