    Question canbus/non canbus HID kits

    Morning,

    Im going to buy some HID's but Im not sure which ones I need

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VAUXHALL-V...item4148cb6ae3

    it says canbus compatible

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/XENON-CONV...item3cc572ea82

    says non canbus?

    I have a 03 vectra c 2.2 elegence and I dont know if its canbus or not, I dont think it is because i dont have the speed controls on the steering wheel but please correct me as I'm probably wrong

    I just emailed HIDS direct with my car details and they sent me the correct package, then if it's wrong then it's their fault!

    ALSO!.. the HIDS direct kits has bulbs with metal bases, the other kit you have linked has plastic bases, much cheaper and nastier.

    Is there a difference between plastic and metal, is there more chance of them falling apart and being poor quality.

    Just asking as I'm on a budget

    I just had mine fitted, from HID direct, they have the metal base, they are amazing. And if you do the headlight adjustment thingie....you see better in the night than during the day ! They make a HUGE diffrence !

    I bought this for mine : http://www.hids-direct.co.uk/h7-50w-...nbus-hid-kits/
