    Default HID's

    This has probably been covered before but couldn't find anything to answer my question. I'm looking for fit HID's onto my facelift Veccy, but does anyone have any reccomendations as to what stength to get, I want them bright, but don't wanna blind other drivers or attract attention off the boys in blue. Also any particular place thats good to get them from?

    35w 6k in mine. Plenty off light. Also did the raising of the headlight mod. Could never go back to halogen.

    Bought from hids direct though have had a failed bulb and ballast like a few on here.

    Mind you hid's direct have upped their customer service game now so returns under warranty are much easier.

    The "standard colour for HID is either 4300K or more recently in Range Rover Ferrari and Porsche 5000K get a kit from HID direct or similar off ebay with cancellors included and go for the 50W kit. It takes about 30 mins to fit as long as you get the wiring poles right way it is plug'n'play apart from drilling a small hole in the rear cover of the dip beam cap.

    Makes a world of difference, Oh, and don't forget to get the dip beam adjusted as they are usually set far lower than they can get away with legally which even on H7 stock bulbs makes a massive difference.
