    Default Which HID kit?

    hi

    going to buy a hid kit. have had them before in other cars, 35w 6000k i had before, the 50w ones seem a newish thing.

    anyway, which should i get all i am reading on here is bad things about hids direct so where should i go?

    super cheap kit (£35 ebay job)?
    middle of the range kit (£60 kit from ebay or some website)?
    expensive philips branded kit (£90 in local car shop)?

    do i need canbus cancellers or not for my 07 vectra? will i have issues fitting the bulbs into the holders? should i get 35w or 50w?

    cheers

    cheers for the replies lads

    aye marc i have fitted them before im sure that part will be ok, ill probably go 6k

    just wondering what would be the best wattage and brand to go for

    it has been a couple years since i had one so dont know what brands are available/best now and never had any of this canbus crap before on a car so dont know what wattage would interfere with it or anything


    i did a search for hids on here and found loads of bad comments about hid4u which is why im avoiding

    I got mine from HIDS4US just over 2½ years ago. (note, that's not HIDS4U - whose HID kits are at least twice as expensive than HIDS4US and HIDsDirect)

    You'll need the can-bus PRO ones (select from the drop down menu)

    carmodshop sell the same product as HIDS4US apparently.

    my full canbus kit including bulbs was 70 quid posted brand new with 2 year warranty and now i only use it in the fogs as i have afl and tbh i have not heard much problems with hids4u i hear all the probs with hids direct with faulty ballasts and not supplying cancelers which mine have built in to ballasts

    Can you provide a link for the HIDs for £70 on HIDS4U?

    Cheapest ones I can see are from £90 upwards.

    Don't actually require it.

    Just amazed that HIDs4U were that cheap when most of their products are double everyone elses.
