    Default buying a hid kit for preface

    anyone bought from these before?
    opinions?

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VAUXHALL-V...item1e655aebee

    how easy are they to wire up? don't want to go chopping wires. looked at the how2 for the mtec ones but seems to be chopping wires, adding connectors etc

    can you get a set you basicall just plug into existing wires?
    i know you need to drill a hole in rubber bung that covers the hole and do some sort of notch out of the bulb holder, but not exactly sure what

    cheers in advance

    Not heard of them guys mate, but all the HID kits are just plug and play. In that listing pic, you can just make out a red spade connector. There is a red and a black one for each HID bulb, and these plug into your existing bulb connector.
