    Default Another HIDS question

    Hi all
    If I wanted to upgrade to HIDS can I just fit the xenon bulbs or is it best to get the full upgrade kit?
    Thanks

    You can't just fit the bulbs. You need the ballasts as well to operate the bulbs as they run on something like 30,000 volts.

    In short you'll need to buy a HID kit. Either a canbus compatable kit, or get a cheaper non canbus kit and have the xenon option enabled with tech2 / opcom etc.
