    Default H.i.d kit query??

    Purchased a cheap hid kit for my pre-face sri..

    I got the usuall error message appearing as the kit is only 35w.

    I then bought some cancellors from egay which stopped the error message but made the lights flicker/strobe??

    Some chaps on here were talkin about changing setting using tech2 telling the car it has different lights??


    Will this work and has anyone local to Fife got tech2/opcom to give this a try??


    Cheers Marc

    Sorry Marc, I can't help with your query but I've just bought a cheap kit off ebay too.

    I may just be being stupid but how are the HID lamps secured into the lights? The retaining clips off the original lamp holders won't go over the lamp so I can't use them????

    No doubt once I've managed to get them fitted I'll have the same problem as you although the kit is supposed to be canbus error free

    I cut the original metal clip with wire cutters at the corner, then slipped it over the wire pushed it up to the bulb. Its tight but works well.. Saves on buying the egay clip..
