    Default Has anything changed?

    I want to fit a set of 6000k HIDs to my signum and looked at the How2 which looks like a bit of a job and I'm a bit cack handed and a bit precious about damaging/breaking anything especially something as crucial as my lights!

    Has anything changed since the How2 was written or is it still necessary to take stuff out of the engine bay and rewire things?

    Vehicle : Mk1 renault scenic... I know I know but it drives

    Trim : Basic

    Engine : 1.6 16v

    Year : 2003

    Default

    Can do it just dropping bumper and taking off lights.

    Quicker and easier IMO.

    And if you get can bus cancellers/ compatible kit. Should be straight forward plugging things in and off you go

    Biggest job is either drilling bottom of light to feed cable through.
    Or like I did cut the rubber cover

    Vehicle : Nissan 350Z GT


    Engine : 3.5 V6

    Year : 06

    Mileage : 50,000

    Default

    Did mine in 15mins without removing the bumper. Removed airbox and battery for easier access.
    Just wire up the cancellers correctly or *BOOM!* they explode.
    A kind mechanic told my ECU that Xenons were fitted avoiding the need to buy any more.

    just ordered these

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VAUXHALL-V...#ht_2627wt_929

    seller tells me plug and play and the install video looked a doddle. Where do folks mount their ballasts? I'm considering super sticky M3 tape mounted on a suitable shelf in there somewhere?
