    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRi (VXR Styling)

    Engine : Z19DTH (Re-mapped)

    Year : 04

    Mileage : 110k

    What's the issue, there basically all the same... But I got a HIDs direct too, give it half a day and you'll have posts moaning about them, but I treat them like I would the CDTI engine failures and Z22SE chocolate chain threads...

    Ditto, i bought the same kit just the other week. No problems & easy to fit (though i did remove the airbox to do the o\s one). The 6000k bulbs i changed for 5000k ones, but that's just down to personal preference.

    Only because i thought that they looked a little "too" blue, as if they seemed to cry out that they had been modded, when i wanted the OEM look.....but able to see where i was going as the stock h\lights are so bad.

    Down to personal preference i suppose ......in fact, the 5000k ones i put in still have a little blue tint to them but i can live with that.

    EDIT, these are the 5000k bulbs i bought. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/3706413709...84.m1423.l2649
