    Default Hids direct

    brought a set of hids off hids direct Sunday and arrived today ready to fit at the weekend. The kits listing says that all of there h7 kits have metal based bulbs for better quality. Gues what? My kit has arrived with plastic bases that look very thick so hard to fit I'm guessing. What would you guys do and how many of you have metal and plastic based bulbs with or without issues. Many thanks

    Is yours a preface or facelift. I tried plastic based bulbs in my facelift and they kept popping out of their socket. Put metal based ones in and they have been perfect.

    No clips are with it but I'm getting some spares anyway so that's not an issue tbh. Just a bit annoyed I haven't got what I payed for and that they advertise as I great feature that I wanted for better ease of fitment

    It's a pre face. No clips with it but I have access to some no worries. Annoyed it was advertised as metal and I've got plastic when I know metal is better as that's why I went for that kit

    Got plastic bases on my HID bulbs for my facelift headlights. No issues whatsoever in the 3+ years they've been fitted. Never popped out the holders at all apart from when I manually popped them out to change a blown bulb in January.

    But then again I didn't buy them from HIDs Direct, mainly because of the negative comments I've read time and time about them.
