    Took me a while to take the plunge, wishing I hadn't as turned out one of the ballasts was faulty. Bought from china so whole lot stripped back out and waiting on replacement. The one that worked looked mint though, 5000k 55w nice white colour.

    Its not a case of asking silly questions, just try to use the search button first. HIDS and their legalities have probably been discussed more than "Which oil do I need" or "Which Tyres should I buy", and as for that god awful never ending word thread, well lets just not go there......

    Not at all. The garage were right to fail them, unless he's changed the factory fitted headlights for projector lense type ones?

    HIDs in plain lenses are darn right dangerous for oncoming traffic. Even if they have the so called "safe" R type HID bulbs. The light is still scattered all over the place.

    HIDs and projector lenses = YES

    HIDs and plain glass = NO

    Anyway, what was the reason given for the fail?

    Its a facelift Corsa C so yes they are in projector lights but as they dont self level or have high pressure washer jets they fail.
