    Default Looking for advice, HIDS or not?

    Currently have a hid kit fitted (was there when I bought the car), but one side has now failed completely.

    Now my question is do I fit another HID kit or go for some nightbreakers. I've got auto lights on my signum and think this is what may have killed the HID as the one side had trouble starting unless I was stationary at idle.

    What do people have and where did you get them from?

    Just buy another ballast, or HID bulb, or buy both as spares are always handy to have.

    As others have said.

    Repair / replace the existing kit.

    Once you have HIDs you won't want to go back to candles.
