    Default Are your Vectra Headlights Good?

    So just wondering if anyone else suffers from the same problems. My headlights are a load of rubbish, they seem to point too low regardless of any adjustment and are just not bright enough.

    Heard it's just a Vectra thing, was confirmed by an ex policeman who said when he used to chase people in parks in the police vectras he could see better from the blues and twos rather than the headlights!

    It's the only complaint I have with the car (ok oil filter position sucks too) and really annoys me!

    EDIT: I have bought and installed a HID conversion kit with 6000k bulbs and 35w ballasts.. still dim as ****, no matter where I adjust my bulbs to!!

    My passenger side one seems to light up the walls, the pavement and anything else left of the car - the road? No chance!!! It's aligned correctly too...

    5000k HIDs will be coming shortly!
