    watch out for the barrage!!! he he!!
    Best order from HIDS Direct / HIDS4US / CARMODSHOP and have your local mechanic fit. Thats what I did,.. however,. it is horrendously easy to do yourself

    Just email HIDS Direct advising you have a Vectra C facelift (H7 is what you'll get). They will reply with the details of the product for your car and a link to it on their site for you to order.
    You will need to decide:
    1. 35W or 50W (35W is PLENTY bright enough)
    2. 4300k 5000K 6000K 8000K etc... (higher you go the bluer the light and also less light is emitted. 4300 is standard Xenon fit colouring/temp and so will look right. I had 6000K in to start with and they are on the edge of turning blue and certainly look aftermarket

    I belive this is the right product for you... verify it though. You need to ensure the dropdown link for car (Vec C as it uses H7 bulb) and colour temperature (4300K etc) are what you want

    http://www.hids-direct.co.uk/hid-kit...its-p-443.html

    Fitting requires removal of the bumper - I remove the arch screws, 4 upper grill mounted screws and 4 at the front directly behind the bumper underneath -this allows the bumper to be lowered down while still attached to the car underneath further back.
    The rest is simply replacing the bulbs and siting the ballast in a drafty dry location

    My Mechanic charged me £30 to fit mine so you may wish to have him do that..... I changed my bulbs the other weekend to 4300K and had to do it twice as the bulbs hadn't seated properly,.. pain in the bum but saved cash
