    Default Best place to put the Ballasts

    Hi All

    Hy hids are now wired up and look lovely but could some of you tell me where you put the ballast and how you attached them.

    Im just a bit unsure at the moment

    Many thanks

    EDIT : Just in case you can't tell I have an 06 Facelift Vec

    although I have a pre face I put my balast under the lamp on the front wing support and cable tied the to the loom thats there, im pretty sure theres enough room on facelifts too (did this while the bumper was off though)

    Thanks very much for your replies lads.

    A member here messaged me and said he put his in the battery compartment and in the wing.

    I could not get the one in the wing to fit probably so I plumbed for putting it under the drivers lamp.
