    Default I have done it now, HIDs on the way

    Just won a set of 35watt 6000K HIDs on Ebay for £22.95 including postage from a UK seller.

    I have Op-Not so will enable the Xenon option and hopefully have no flickering .

    Default They have arrived

    Arrived today and fitted already, maybe not the neatest of installations and got a bit carried away cutting the headlight covers. Just waiting for it to get dark so I can see if there is any improvement?

    I put the nearside ballast inside the battery tray for easy access and the offside one under the headlight on the flat bit which I beleive was designed for the factory ballasts, I used sticky foam pads to fasten them up. Will see how long they stay up?

    I did not take the bumper off, but did take the airbox out of the nearside for better access. The bulbs are plastic based, they seemed to clip in ok, but next time I will probably buy metal bases??

    I have as yet no bulb warning and I have not altered any settings with Op-Not!

    I don't know why you bothered name changing when there isn't an issue with it.

    Default

    Well been out in the dark now, they are definately brighter with a blue tinge, makes you wonder if the 5000K or lower would put out more light rather then being a whiter light??

    So far so good, they are definately better then the halogens that were in before.
