    Default HIDs finally up and running, wow

    After two duff ballasts the third one worked. Xenons activated so no flickering at all.

    Went for 55w 5000k and the difference is fantastic, the standard headlights really are pants!!

    i am probably one of the wariest people i know when trying out new things, but i felt confident enough to fit hids.

    i cant see any problems mot wise, half the cars on the road have them nowadays.

    they cant ban them all, halogens are pants, technology moves on.................

    Between my cars I've had hids for last 4 years at least and had no dramas on MOT

    tester in work went of his refresher course and specifically asked about my lights. Because got LEDs that flash when off aswel.

    and came back to say would pass so long as alignment is ok.
