    Default how about a hids section

    just a thought,start a section for hid questions,i'm sure it would smarten up the forum and give people somewhere to look for answers mods may not be impressed to start with due to increased moving stuff about but should improve things in a week or 2

    Was thinking that myself mate. I find searching and trying to piece together information on HID's very confusing, but then again I'm easily confused I think if there was a thread of what HID kit people bought, what make and model of car they installed it on and where they bought the kit would be a good reference for people to search through.

    TBH I'd just like a list of kits people have bought and wether they work in preface or facelift.

    So just like: DogsDangliesHIDs - preface no, facelift yes

    Probably just a sticky on the Electrical thread would suffice, with links to kits that have been bought, how 2's, and experiences - with a kind of "read this before posting any new HID threads" kind of thing - maybe.

    It would be good to include which lights are on the bulb checking circuit which aren't - and what LED's can be used and not bring a bulb error up on display, but will still flash/pulse.

    Hopefully would eradicate the need for the posts, and we'd be left with the ones from members showing which they have used and have they have got on.

    Bulb check circuit info would be good, I fitted leds in all my interior lights including the boot lights that are down near the light clusters, and I guess they are not on the circuit as no strobing. Howevefr I also put an led in the boot hatch light, and this does strobe so I guess it must be on the circuit. Perhaps cos it can be outward facing maybe?

    Interior lights are fine, but the number plate lights are on the circuit, but you don't need canbus ones as they won't bring up an error - not sure why they pulse if they aren't on the dash error circuit!?!?

    Sorry - it's not the numberplate lights it's the interior light in the centre of the hatch on a signum.

    No worries. So can I put leds with resistors in my numberplate lights and they won't strobe?

    Cheers
