    Default Bulbs or HID kit?

    What do you guys use on your insignias?
    The reason I ask is I have a couple of month old HID kit I've just removed from my Vectra, will this work in the insignia without warning lights?
    If need be I will just change the bulbs..

    Cheers

    Dont know mate but just remember that the headlights on an Insignia are the reflector type (unlike the projector lenses on the Vec), its probably a different bulb, and fitting HIDs into a standard reflector lense lights is dangerous to other road users as it blinds them.

    There's not much between the SRI and Elite Insignias looks wise either. Obviously the wheels, but the Insignia Elite does get the exhaust tail pipe pointing the correct way.

    Unless you get the VX-Line kit there's sod all difference that I can see. The older Elite's had a visible tailpipe but I've got nothing on mine. It looks boring...
